Now Playing: nina simone - a single woman
I've not had much time to work on my own stuff this week as I've been concentrating on putting together the layout for In Her Own Image.
But today I took some self-portraits and tomorrow I am taking a day trip with Feih to Lorne. I have plenty of ideas for self-portraits as well as other photographic ideas to play with on the trip.
I'm also toying with the idea of doing a "100 people" project. Not quite a "100 strangers" project, as I don't want to limit it to strangers (aside from anything else I want to make it possible to complete: I'm too shy to approach 100 strangers in order to take their photos!). But also because I want to get back into the habit of taking candid portraits of friends and family like I used to in high school and during college. Photos of the people I care about that are not just taken to create a concept in my mind.
I'm not saying they will be posted straight out of camera or not at all planned in some way, but more a mixture of capturing people in their own environment or in a social situation, or just whilst spending time with them.
Because I don't have enough projects on my plate right now :P Though this would have no deadline. This is just for me.
Though I didn't have a plan for my self-portraiture today beyond "I want to use the garage as my setting" and "I want to work with those shafts of light and create something dark", this image in particular puts me in mind of the work of a male self-portrait artist I admire, who I will post about soon.
