WEEK 5: SUPERVISOR SESSION
None. I did some reading but it didn't get me anywhere.
I find the idea interesting that the projection turns the white pants into stripped ones.
Using the edge of the projection frame as an element.
Using the shadow more than the actual element. Also interesting here, that the girl looks fragile but the shadow over her rather big and overlooking.
None of these photographs are examples for what I want to work on but have elements that are worth having a closer look at. Looking at all the Pinterest images also shows what I don’t want to do: no fashion photography, no person being the main subject, no full frame projection.
Whereas in the above images I rather found the formal elements interesting, here I find the content noticeable: a couple naked and intimate but through the projection the photograph gives the impression of being in public. Such an interesting contrast and story! And points me at what I still have to work on.
The shape of the silhouette is more interesting than the model. Working with silhouettes, even without being in the frame might be an interesting approach, no matter if it's a person, objects or cut out shapes.
After the session
The silhouette of a rose and the model are set in relation. (Possibly a photograph by Tim Walker for the Japanese Vogue, but I couldn’t find a reliable recourse.)
