"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever...it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything."

second week people!

OK first shoot done and I was really happy with it and I captured what I wanted to capture, the only thing I would change is I would have liked more time to do more complex makeup and take more photographs so I may come back to this set of photogrpahs in the future. From this shoot I have learnt that I need to make sure I have enough time to prepare any make up or costume and also that I have set up the set before the model arrives to save time. I also need to take from this the aspect of not being trigger happy and think about my images before I take them.
Now enough of the past and to the future.
Soo...this idea sounds a little odd but the picture it was inspired by gives it more sense. My idea is suicide, or rather the idea of suicide. I would like to take pictures of a female in a filled bathtub. I am hoping to first take a picture of the bath on its own, then with only a leg hanging out then a leg and arm and then getting closer to the bathtub. The last two images will be the girl underwater seeming unconcious (or dead) and then the last will be with her eyes wide open under the water.
It is influenced by floria sigismondi's photogrpah of a girl in an empty bath in a tatterd dress. (see link)
The camera I would like to use is a 400D or possible a medium format camera.
