Woke up today worried about not beeing able to mount my work on time! I called 6 different companies in London to ask how long it will take them to mount my printed photographs in aluminium..they all answered between 14 to 10 days…except genesis that said that they d do it for 8 with a ‘bit’…of extra charge..
I went to Chelsea College this morning in order to print my photographs..the stuff there is always extremely helpful and friendly. I was worried for the editing i ve done yesterday evening..my eyes are really sour over the last month making it impossible to stare on the screen repetately for hours..
We were discussing with the guy at the digital media to re-edit the pictures and keep the Raw files… In order to do that i used the camera raw program on the computer..
Choosing the Three images for the show:
I think when it comes down in choosing the best images, and by saying best i mean the ones that would work better with each other. Ive spent a long time choosing the images i wanted..the decision was made using the steps i always consider:
- Sharpest not blurred fragments
- Interesting body posture
- Interesting lighting on to the room / body
- Moments of tension
- Evident effort for Balance
- Use different body/hand postures in each photograph
1st Sculptural Composition:
2nd Sculptural Composition:
3rd Sculptural Composition:
to be really really honest i never edited my imagery with this program so it was great giving it a shot. I could pretty much do anything that i wanted to do, including editing off spots/ birthmarks or event bits of hair hoping if necessary.
I particularly loved experimenting with the gradient tool (below), i could enlighted and enchant, dark fragments of the image..
