I finally made time for a self-portrait that I have had in mind for months now. The light was just right and so I grabbed my camera and tripod, covered myself in paint, slapped on my new fake eye lashes, and started shooting. I ended up with a few that I was really happy with, and may share at some point.
Lately I have been questioning what exactly my 366 is. I had a few of my professors and fellow grads ask about it this past semester, and it made me rethink the purpose behind this project. I know it is almost over, so it will mostly impact future 365 projects (if that happens), but it has also made me wrestle with what I am shooting these days. Today I opted to simply document what my day was spent doing.
And happy New Year’s Eve everyone!
I had the idea of pouring oil into water for a picture for quite a while, and this evening I set up a mini studio to do so while my roommate sat and looked on. We decided there wasn’t enough contrast between the oil and water, so I was going to add food coloring to the water, but she wondered what would happen with acrylic paint. Well, needless to say, we got some pretty awesome results. I will most likely be uploading more of these because they were just awesome.
