Since it’s been awhile and I started talking about my newest series before I “left” I thought it to be good to post some updates.
There aren’t many really.
My head has been dead for a while now and can’t seem to find the inspiration to get going with these new series; whatever the concept may be. “La Vérité” might get a different angle of view as the second photo I made, the nude one with the high heels, is not something I would like to hang on the walls knowing that it’s me you’ll see on the photo. Call me prudish or whatever but certain footage of me is not really meant for all of you. Even if it’s a completely manipulated image it still is me. So, that idea gets put on a hold for now. I could work with a model but seriously, I don’t need nude strange people in front of my camera. Heck, I don’t even want just strange people in front of my camera. So, there goes that…
I’ve a couple of more thoughts and ideas but it just doesn’t seem to be getting to a point where I’m able to make something coherent for more than 1 image. Maybe I should take a week of at work and sit home alone all day or something. My head is just too busy with other stuff and leaves me very little room to actually think about a project or whatever thoughts I may be having, about anything really. In other words I’m stuck. Luckily everything comes to an end, so I keep telling myself.
The good part is that the camera I’m having made by Blackart Woodcraft is finally on its way to me! I do have to figure out something that I want to photograph though. Maybe I should take that week off… Anyway, on to some photos made by Steve of the camera right before he sent it to me:
I am looking forward to receiving it; this Thursday should be the big day but can’t seem to read any updates on its status via FedEx so just hoping for the best 😉
I also just bought an Acute-Matte D ground glass for my Hasselblad so I’ll finally have less trouble focusing. Looking forward to that as well, should arrive this week too hopefully. Reminds me, still have to develop my films from Barcelona huhum..there still is stuff to do!
Anyway, I guess that is it. Nothing much as you can see. Hope to be showing some new plates soon though; I can’t wait to get started making them.
