I present this personal project as a look into my process. This image is from a series of photograph I original shot in 2013. From this series of portraits I crated one image for my Citizens We portrait project. The other for a my on going Dreamscape project, Lady of th Lake.From time to time I will revisit images from photo shoots for noth more than; Just to see. This allows me to viw the images from a fresh perspective.
When I first pulled up this series of photos I went through them in Adobe Bridge in Full Screen mode. As I went through them I inadvertently zoomed in. I liked what I saw and decided to view them all in this tighter view. After making an intenial selection and choosing one, I began to work on the image.
Just let me say, I had no preconceived ideas of what I wanted the photo to look like I simply went in the direction the image took me. I think it’s a misconception that mechanical media and processes like photography or digital media are not organic and fluid like drawing. But they are. If you can think in the process it becomes an organic one.
There was a lot going on beyond the eight images I now present to you. These are the nodal point I choose as moments that took me to the final image. In the end, it is important to know your craft. You don’t need to know everything, but know your part of it and expand on that knowledge.
