I have to admit assignment two is driving me crazy, I feel clueless and I am running out of time, my deadline is approaching and I don’t feel satisfied with my work so far. My idea was to spend the morning with an Artist at her home and take photographs of her on how she spends her day. I took lots of photographs but looking at them now, I don’t feel that there is anything special about them. I don’t know if I am moving on the right direction or I am just over thinking the assignment!
I would love some feedback from my fellow students (good or bad) anything will help for now as I am clueless. I do have something else in mind in case this won’t work but I am running out of time and I am not sure if my other plan will work either!
The problem I faced is that the apartment’s lighting was very bad so I tried to benefit from the big window, however the sun was up and the light was not perfect. I had to use my flash although I don’t like using flash and I am not very good with flash but I had no other option. The decoration and interior design was simple. Everything was as beautiful as my subject’s heart. A very kind and warm woman but when I went back home and checked the photos I felt that the colors are all the same from the furniture to the model’s clothes! Everything is brown. She mentioned that she loves the leopard prints so I am not sure if that makes the photos ok. I tried to convert the photographs to black and white to avoid the matching colors of the model with the background but I am not sure if I like that either!
I will work on my second plan tomorrow in case this won’t work out the way I want but I do appreciate any feedback.
