Sometimes an idea may just pop into your head, or perhaps a conversation or incident creates a spark and the cogs in your head start turning, what do you do? forget that moment of inspiration or craziness, or do you jump out of the box and seize the idea, develop it, create it then shoot (in a nice way of course)?
It is painful to think I wish I had done that shot or followed that idea, so why not do it, if it fails then at least you may have learnt something.
“Wow” when you see someone else’s shot but you think, I want to do that or I would do that but slightly different – this portfolio is dedicated to “doing it”, there is no structure, no common theme other than having fun and satisfying the creative urge. Random-acts are just Random-Acts, enjoy.
You are sitting in the studio with all your photographic equipment at hand. You suddenly have an idea, you mull it over and excitedly declare to yourself, “Yes, that will work”. Everything you require to fulfil the vision is there barring one thing, the model. It is either late, an unsociable hour or just simply that it might bone too tough an ask to get someone else involved. Cue, make up, lights and action, you are about to be star behind and in front of the camera.
The photographs featured in this portfolio were created using the following process :-
- A scenario was imagined.
- A self-portrait of the victim/subject was taken and then printed
- The print was then placed on a background
- A second self-portrait was then taken of the action on the subject
The project is still a work in progress with many new ideas being considered and some being discounted on certain moral grounds
