Mmmm interesting… Weather was flat and overcasted. the deep forest really needed high contrasts from the sun but was not to be. Got some images but continued shooting at different locations near Glasgow. Got a range of ideas that are possibilities… Was trying out making a landscape from water. i.e. the reflections of the forest in the loch. but this didn’t really work out how I was wanting. Got some interesting impressionist looking plant shots. Colours are really interesting but not working well with one another at the moment, and finally some sky shots which I was initially looking towards shooting for this project. Went to meeting last night. Looking for some guidance as to which route to follow. And to my surprise it was felt I should use all three and create a fourth line of images that could consist of the earth. To me personally each of these themes are separate projects. I went out shooting today trying to get earth, sand and some water shots. Light was too diffused for my liking. Still unsure about bringing together all these elements but I have the time to try them and play about with the idea. Whilst shooting some sky shots. I can’t help thinking about contextualising everything. Elaine and Claire said I need to have fun with it and stop worrying about this but to me the project is an image and text piece (probably a trait from uni but can’t help it). I am going to start working on my text asap. As I need time to develop it.
Hand in is fast approaching!
