We have been asked to get out of our comfort zone for our first project so we have no comfort blanket to hide under. I have always felt most at ease photographing inanimate objects.Being able to take your time and compose the image has always appealed. Strong moody B &W architectural shots with abstract overtones , using mainly available light. I have therefore decided to move away from this as much as possible . I will do as much as can in the extreme opposite. The initial plan is to shoot dance moves in a studio situation using colour, capturing the movement .
At present I see this developing as a personal journey of discovery. I envisage that it will probably take me on a long and winding road.
Here I am embarking on a massive learning curve as a mature student. There is high excitement at the prospect of starting but also a feeling of panic about knowing where to begin .There are so many different threads of learning that I will have to master before I can even start to work on a project.Where to start?
I came across the extremely stunning photographs of Lois Greenfield. This cocoon type photograph in particular resonated with my feelings of restarting, new beginning , rebirth .
I adore the movement in this shot.The fact that it looks so organic
