22/52 – Letting go of the world

This was from a week or so ago, and was taken after talking to my professor at some length about my project. We decided I just needed to get out and shoot like crazy without worrying about lighting or poses or anything, just shoot. I also kind of decided I wanted to try to stick to entirely perspective/leading shots, but we will see if that sticks.

And the bear. I am going to include one of each from now on, in the same post to keep things simple.

21/52 – No need for rescue

I thought and thought and thought about a title, but all I could think of was lame, one word titles which I hated. So, for now, it is untitled.

I took this a bit go, it was for my self-portrait studio shoot. It doesn’t really work for my project any more though. I was still using lighting at this point, there was one Dyna light to the left of the camera, at around a 45 degree angle I believe (I cannot remember exactly).

20/52 – Waiting for something better.

I have had these pictures for such a long time, but am just now getting around to posting them. This is for my studio project this summer (potentially?), and at this point I was still using strobes. Not in love with this picture at all, but I like it enough to post it.

And, so that I don’t overload with posts today here is another one from the shoot, with the bear.Which I think I have decided will be an important part of my project.  I am not a huge fan of this picture either, but I like it enough to post, and to give an idea of what I am working towards for those of you who are interested.

I am interested what you all think about these. Let me know what sort of emotion/mood and possible meaning (if any) you could get out of it! That way I can start to figure out if these are total failures. Thanks so much!

The Others

Here are the rest of the self portraits from tonight that I liked. All of them were meant to have a strobe or two, but it stopped working on me after the frist 20 minutes or so unfortunately. Also all were done for the project I am working on for studio, which will be a series of self portraits. There will be much more to come from that project.

103/365 – Mixed Media

So, I have to confess. This is from yesterday. I am physically, mentally, and emotionally drained right now and was stretching myself to even upload a picture today let alone take one. Plus I was working on this project every spare second I had since crit was tonight. SOOC except for a conversion from raw.
