EXTERIOR SURROUNDINGS [20/04/20]

Updated: May 22, 2020

Exploring chance and uncontrollable environments when shooting using restricted facilities and conditions


CONSIDER


-Creased backdrop as a result of iron recently breaking ... once again incorporating features that can't be helped at this given time, and outcomes become altered/effected as such.

-Good natural lighting needed, resulting in shooting outside, resulting in wind

-Shadows cast across frame

-Unable to focus on subject as a result of wind


OVERALL


Makes for a somewhat ambiguous and fascinating outcome? Causing viewer to try and work out what is in fact occurring in the depicted scene. Whether they gage and understand my intentions or not it makes their minds 'work' and allow for everyone to understand and perceive them differently. Each shot is completely unique in this sense and cannot be recreated or duplicated.

Too obvious? reconsider? alternative methods of exploration?
