My full work on Elaine is composed of 30 + photos, should you have an interest, please visit my full work on Elaine here

I would really appreciate it if you can let your thoughts be known to me in this thread after you have seen my work =)

Experimental Concept

My artwork is about combining all of the impressions from of all of the photos of the model. In every set I have more than 30 photos, all displayed in a specific format arranged to simulate the layout of a Triptych (Triptych - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) but modified to for website publish

Another example can be those of Egyptian wall art
egypt.jpeg


Other words you must consider all of these photos plus the words in my article about the model for it to work. Its sort of like a macro scale kind of thing.

My experiment is about being able to accurately express a person using this means.


Approach

I capture my subjects exactly as they are despite what she says about herself and what she does in the pictures

I minimize my influence and bias in the subject by providing minimal direction and art guidance, hence minimizing influence contamination.

Everything in the photos, everything in each word and sentence belongs to the subject and none of mine.

All of this raw data is completely up to the audience to process and interpret to their heart’s content =D

Telling me your interpretation will definitely help me a lot ! So please do =)

As for the background and place i choose, this sort of captures an element of fate to my work. Its like it is fate that we have to shoot at this place at this particular moment ( i hope i am making sense )

As much as I appreciate your intentions of fate etc in your location, I think these pictures would have been FAR better in a studio setting with a controlled lighting set up. Not that I've ever shot in that situation hahahaha, its just how I would have done it.

You could try a flash or reflector and then adjust your shutter to deepen your backgrounds. I know why you are using shade, but it flattens the subject's tones and lessens the illusion of volume. As it stands, the backgrounds demand attention because they lean so heavily into the whites.

[h=2]Elaine: In my opinion, it applies to all or most of the photos, level out the camera angles and do more aggressive cropping. The background can be less distracting to Elaine.[/h]

I agree with this guy, but especially with the cropping. Shes so skinny it just makes her look insignificant within the huge frame of the photo. Also remember rule of thirds. Eyes/interest point on upper third always seems to work best.
