Emotion Coming Through
On Saturday when I taught my class I got some many fantastic photos of my model and so I have prepared two more for you today.
I do love this table, it is quite amazing. I also love this pose, though I do wish her eyes were different. I love the feeling of the image, is she just lying there because she is feeling depressed, or is there more too it. I did tell her to pretend she was dead, as though she had been poisoned. I think the image could convey many things.
I know a few people have asked me how I edit my images. I don’t want to do a tutorial on it, but I am looking into software that I could do a screencast of it and then make it go faster for you, so you don’t see everything, but you get an idea of how one of my images comes together. I don’t know much about this kind of software, but if I find out I might try it. Though would prefer it to be free, so if anyone knows anything about software, screencasts for Windows, I’m all ears.
I was trying something different with this image. I told her to pretend she was terrified sitting in the corner, and then I worked on making the image darker. I wanted to convey a scared girl trying to hid in the corner at night. The original image was so white, so it took a bit of effort to get it like this. I am not sure the scared part really came out.
I am really happy with where my images are going. I do feel like I am growing as an artist and the work feels more like my own, rather than me imitating what others have done.
The weather has been horrible here, but we are finally seeing some better weather. I really want to get out and some preparing images for the compositing, so this week looks like the first time I can do that. So fingers crossed it holds and I can get on with it.
As I did the other day, the before and the after shots, one after the other.
