Portfolio Choosing the images - Wk 4


My plan is to do tests prints next week.  I have completed shooting four models.

Selecting images which reflect my vision:

The direction of my photography continues to follow the same ideas that i expressed in my earlier blog regarding showcasing the "essence" of my subjects; through my eyes.  The photos above show off the special traits of each of my models.

Pela - Is the reflection of beauty, creativity and vulnerability.  People who don't know her think that shes intense or stand offish, but to those who know her well, theirs something about her which sets her apart.  This photo celebrates happiness and life.

Paris - Is a blooming flower.  She's still very young, and is facing a lot of real world challenges.  She's part of the social media generation, who are constantly engulfed in the cyber world.  She has a long road ahead of her and i am excited and hopeful for her.  This photo celebrates the coming of age.

Pata - Epitomizes the word strength.  She reminds me so much of my mother.  She is selfless, dedicated, loyal and loving.  I admire her and am inspired by the person she is.  This photo celebrates patience and hope.

Chris - Is one of the most adorable, loving and loyal people i know.  Hes solid, very vocal and pretty much tells it like it is.  If anything this guys is who you want to stand beside you in a brawl!  This photo celebrates authenticity and truth.


Sitting with the photos:

These are photos of my prints hanging in the hallway.  I really like how sit on the wall.  I chose to arrange the photos in this order, because the photos looked visually balanced. There is a natural curved movement where the eye can move easily from one photo to the other.  Also i thought that the images on the ends framed the collection well.
Doing test prints:
Next week i will do test prints and see how these photos translate on double weight matte and hahnemuhle paper.
