Framing The World Through My Photographs
The idea behind this image will be to interprete how I have felt whist been faced with over whelming text. The text that over whelms me can be in any form. Especially whist doing work its like I drown in the text.
To create this image I used my bedroom as what should be a place of relaxation often becomes a place of stress.
First attempt :
This image would be made up of layers I started of my photographing my bedroom on its own
This created my base layer. Whist keeping the camera in the same place through the shoot I then began to build up the layers of newspaper by getting all excited about being able to run around my room throwing paper everywhere.
Once i had all of the newspaper layer I then when on to photographing myself, with the help a peer to take the photos, my perching on my chair I would then be able to remove the chair in post production.
This style of image is something that i havent done before therefore i have done research in how to effectively do complile the images together.
To edit this images I wanted to make the room underwater my giving sublte clues.
The issues I had with my first ways of editng was that I cutting each element out instead of making each layer. I also found the image to be to sharp with what I was wearing.
I therefore reshot the whole image wearing different clothes and photographing the paper again in a different way.
The out comes of this shoot were a lot more effective.
below is the image I created from this shoot. The image has receive a good response from my peer how ever I wondered weather if I a different angle would work better, however my room is only small so space is tight.
However I tryed reshooting this image from a different angle. Although the angle may have been slightly better the images didn’t have the same effect that the above image did.
Although the angle is a slight improvement I feel the impact is lost in comparison to the other image.
To improve the old image, Added more layers to create more of a filled frame which created more of a chaos.
I am please with the outcome of this image as I feel that its interprated the way I feel when faced with this overwhelming feeling of drowning in the words.
