For about 18 months I have had a project in my head and finally got all the pieces aligned so I can start shooting and making the concept real.
These two images are the first in a series, exploring a different darker place. As you can gather, the images will be quite adult themed, there will be (hopefully) tasteful nudity.
I know these images will be challenging for some people, and that there will be a variety of reactions. I look forward to the responses.
You have already seen me go down this rabbit hole with the more macabre bloody style of images – this is more conceptual and abstract, with a limited muted colour palette of white, black and red, edited in a higher key than I usually do.
Also for the first time, I hope to have another participant to interact with and help me tell much more of a story.
I only have one shot at doing this, so I plan to take it slowly, my art journal is already brimming over with ideas and poses with more coming every day. Also I have another major project happening in real life which is going to take up a lot of my time. So this is going evolve organically over the next few months.
Love to hear your feedback! I’m really excited to be finally working on this project and bring it to reality.
Best of luck with this project, excited to see results
Me too! thanks 🙂
I love a good series. Enjoy. Cant wait to see what is next
LOL Im still not quite sure where its going yet either, have so many ideas but have to see which ones I can pull off!
you don’t work with a mud map?
Maybe an Aussie term. Roughly work out what you want, when where how who etc etc
Oh i have pages of notes in my journal, but sometimes an idea doesnt quite pan out in reality or evolves while you are doing it. So its a very fluid process.
Thats true….i tend to plan everything to death. Lol
I plan up to a point but if it doesn’t work out, then I shrug and carry on. I guess its easier with just me in some ways, tho its harder as well, ie with getting poses and angles right, as it takes a lot longer without another viewpoint.
I guess so
I’m intrigued – don’t leave me hanging!
Unfortunately due to it being winter here, I can only shoot for a few hours in the afternoon, which means I am limited to weekends. Plus each pose takes quite a lot of work to get right. Anyway…..anticipation won’t do you any harm…..
I hope your project turns out well. Do you have a plan for what you’re going to do with the images when they’re done?
LOL thats a good question – I might approach some galleries to see if they are exhibition worthy, the subject matter might be edgy enough to qualify. Who knows!
