Daily Photo Prompt: Journey

These images are not new, but I think they represent “journey” quite well. I plan to do more images with cars in the future.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Up

I’m going to take this opportunity to explain a past image.

The World is Full of Bad People and People who Don't Care when Life is Bad for You (2)

This image is part of my series The Conception and Sensation of Time. I wanted to take a photo looking up from below to lend more clarity to what was happening in this image:

The World is Full of Bad People and People who Don't Care when Life is Bad for YouThis task is easier said than done when you’re figures are 3/4″-1″ tall and the width of your camera lens is 4-5 times larger than that.

So, I popped the figures off of the set and held them, super glued together, in the air.

It’s not like this idea is massively creative, but I think it’s interesting to know what was going on in someone’s head when they take or design an image. I love looking at behind the scenes shots because there is so much story behind the creation of an image that you don’t necessarily get when looking at the final piece.

For the series I am just beginning, I will be taking a lot of behind-the-scenes images for one of my professors from UNF to use in his Fabricated Photography class this spring, but of course, I will also be sharing those behind-the-scene looks with you. Stay tuned!

In the meantime, check out these set-up shots by photographer JD Hancock.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Change

I know you’ve seen images from this series before, but considering the series is called Change, I thought I would take this opportunity to discuss it further. I have lived in Jacksonville since my Freshman year of High school. That makes 8 years now. These past 8 years, more specifically these past 4 have been the most significant years of my life in terms of personal growth. My memories here and the experiences I’ve had have shaped me into who I am. This series, while never fully finished took figures, each representing me/ some aspect of myself (i.e. painters, photographers, readers/workers) and placed them in locations around Jacksonville that have been significant to me in some way (i.e. The Cummer Museum in which I volunteered for a few months and interned for nearly a year). I strove to fully explore Jacksonville’s effect on my life before I moved forward in my endeavors elsewhere.

What I’ve been Working on

I’ve been hard at work on my senior project. Here is a bit of a preview. However, this series is very much in it’s beginning stages, so there’s a lot more to come.
