My original concept for this image didn’t work due to not enough space to perch comfortably. So I adapted to suit the conditions, as any good photographer should and made do with what I could do.
Changes made from the previous shoot:
– put the remote in a plastic bag to keep it clean
– wet my hair for better effect
– made a runnier consistency fake blood
– put some of the blood in a squirt bottle to better apply it
This pose had a lot more flexibility, I could press the remote button with my chin so I could use both hands/arms. I didn’t make enough blood and needed to decorate the set a bit more extensively but its hard to see behind you while keeping still to try not to smear what was already there.
It seems like a lot of blood when I was putting it on but not nearly enough when I look at the images now. I liked the pose on this image a lot, and the way my hair is fanned out over my arm and shoulder.
I make images like this to evoke a response. How do you feel when you see it? Why?
