Reflection #9 – Free Write on Your Personality & Experimental Photography.

Step 1: Read Before You Shoot & What is Experimental Photography

Step 2: Imagine in your head, what parts of your personality you will try to capture with Experimental Photography. Write a sentence about each photo you will shoot. Number each shot and when you are done you will have a shot sheet for this assignment.

Example:

After teaching for 13 years, some days I get a little spacey, like I get so into my own head that I don’t feel connected to this earth anymore. So what I would do is photograph myself standing at my standing desk. I would shoot a clean background with the desk in addition to the shot of my standing there. Then I would remove any part of my body not covered in clothes: My neck, my head, my hands my feet. All that will be left is my clothes which will look like they are floating in mid air. (1)

For the 2nd image, I would photograph the picture on my desk with my kids in it, and put my own face on the two babies faces. (2)

For the 3rd Image I would create a double exposure of my face over a half empty glass of water, this represents my more pessimistic side which at times can override my positive side.(3)

Take a shot of my journal, and knock out panels of the journal so that they make windows to different parts of my life. (4)

I’d like to collect older photos that my dad took and create a background that I will put my modern self into. Reflecting my need for nostalgia, to a live of more simplistic times than the times we live in now. (5)
