It’s hard to admit when shots don’t quite turn out like you imagined. I find it tricky to come up with unique ideas, it feels like everything in the photographic world has been done a million times before by people far more skilled. Still, you’re never going to get better if you don’t try…
I had two ideas that I wanted play with.
1.) A series where everything is happy, cheery and colourful, and as the series progresses, the images are drained of all colour, resulting in a last stark dark image. I tried this twice, and never quite felt like I captured it as I wanted…
I first tried with Amira and Kiara but I think the poses where too large and too numerous.
I think the 2nd attempt with Hayley and Hayley went a lot better, but I’m not sure if the series would make much sense to anyone without an explanation.
The second idea came from seeing a billion images of female models in intimate poses. I wanted to flip it and show a series where two girls share intimacy but one of the girls finishes the series with regret.
The second try with Hayley and Hayley went less well I think. I just couldn’t capture the emotions I was trying to convey.
