During March I participated in Brooke Sheldon’s 30 Days of Creativity Challenge. Every day we had an inspirational video and some challenge concepts. I am horribly behind in creating images for the daily challenges but I have very much enjoyed seeing the great work being done by other students.
Brooke inspires me because she got started with essentially herself and a camera and made the fine art self portait an amazing artform all of its own. While I am still developing my photoshop skills to the level required, I have also been inspired to work on experimenting with the photography aspect.
Take one long narrow white room, with a window at one end, a long piece of cotton muslin, a camera on a tripod with a 10sec self timer mode – add your photographer who is also the model and let the chaos ensue!
I had to banish one cat who thought the fabric trailing on the ground was the best fun 🙂
If you are going to bare your artistic soul, then for some reason, I feel the need to do it literally, going completely nude. Yet the fabric both hides and reveals. Not sure quite what that says about me but it makes a nice image.
Edited in LR to a black and white and a couple of textures added in PS for some added depth and interest.
Am I nuts? Or am I maybe on to something here? Let me know!
