Ok so this week is going to be the bathtub shot. I have the dress, the model, the camera and the BATHTUB!!!! You can see my ideas at this link

The following quotes will appear beside this weeks images. It is a quote from Floria sigismondi's Redemption (which is in my book list)

"I was drowning, I was dying, the one who saved me was also the one who contaminated me"
This quote appeared alongside one of Floria's images of a girl submerssed in water which I plan to scan onto the blog. (now shown left)

Also I tend to draw my ideas and after viewing floria's book where she includes her ideas as drawings I am going to upload my drawings to the blog also.

This was my first ever macro shot and I think it came out quite well. Again depth of field but I really like how the chain seems to disapear.
ok so even though I was not neccisarly inspired for this shot by this photogrpaher he has inspired me to do a lot more macro shots. Link

This is my favirote image due to the depth of field and the sharpness of the diamonds.
My inspiration for macro shots is here

I love this image the diamonds are really detailed. And I like the depth of field with the chain. The closet image to this is a comercial image seling jewlery which you can find at this link .

I would like this image alot more if the front of the necklace was in focus. Although it does give depth of field.

I like this image although it is very anoying that the necklace is so near the bottom of the image. The image of a heart is very strong in our culture. It symbolises love and the heart even though the human heart is no where near this in shape. This does not show any where near what it could symbolise.

Week Three again

ok so it is not going to be the bathtub shoot this week. Instead I took macro shots.

week three

ok so this week IS going to be the bathtub shoot (for all my planning please read the previous posts)

I took this image because I really like the tonal range of the orange in the shot. I also took it at an odd angle giving it more of an intresting look.

Again another odd angle. Unfortuantly I can not post a contact sheet of this shoot due to a technical fault on the memory stick these images were on.

Week Two

This is the view out of my boyfriends window. I think it is an amazing view and wanted to show it to others. I also took it at an odd angle. I think odd angles give a more intresting feel to certain images.

Change of heart

Ok soooo due to the problems I have had with the second week original idea (which will now be week 3 or 4) I have taken images of landscapes instead.

Yet another set back!

Ok so another set back is that where I wanted to shoot (in a bath tub) is not possible due to my house and a friends house not having a bath and only showers!! So I am going to try and adapt my idea to fit around a shower (with any luck!)

Model Dilema

Ok so due to my model I had origianly planned to use having a fear of being underwater (just my luck) I am going to have to model myself as the only other model I have is male. So I am going to set up the camera how I want the image to look or explain to a friend how I want the shot to look and then all he has to do is press the button.
