As I take a look around, so many things have changed I can hardly recognize my own blog. Perfect. No poems or stories. No illustrations. No apparel. Only photography. And the automobile photos are gone. It shocked me to the point where I had to stop yesterday and think about where my remaining works of art would go from here.
I’d like to try something different in my next photography series. It’s taken me a while to get the lighting just right because these portraits where taken with low-key ambient lighting. Plus, depending on which website I post this type of photography on, sometimes the scenes seem too bright or extremely dark. Headache. I’ve decided to do the best I can during photo editing, but it will never be “perfect” on every monitor.
“Control issues?” No. Let’s stick to the subject. 🙂 I’m leaning towards making a collage out of 9 to 12 self-portraits. Each one has a different expression. I especially like when the facial expressions are very similar, but a few tweaks can convey an entirely different mood.
The only thing I’m debating right now is whether or not to present them in the order I photographed them. Names? I don’t have names for each expression. The viewer can decide.
I cannot believe it. I watch one TED Talks video and it completely changed how I approach my work. I am re-focused. Glorious.
