Carrying on playing and drawing with light, I decided to take it outside to try. It was dark, but for some reason some of the photos came out a sort of sepia colour. For these ones my brother helped me and we just ran around the garden past the camera, producing an amazing streak of light, I was amazed by this result. I really like them.
Thinking more towards the brief though and youth, he tried drawing a circle of light above my head to represent a halo and although they didn't work too well, I actually really like the ghostly effect produced and think I could do something with it.
For these two I actually tried moving the camera on the tripod rather than the light itself, but it did not work as well. I was also worried about moving my camera so quick!
Here are the results of me developing the halo pictures further, I overlapped them onto a photo I took of a grave as I thought this was a good contrast to the halo. The last one is my favourite.
I now wanted to try writing letters out with the light, so I tried to write the name of the magazine, dazed and confused separately with all the letters. These are some of the successful letters.
Next I wanted to add them over some of the photos I'd already produced, so I tried merging a variation of the different light photos.
I don't think this looks good!
However this one has something about it, but the writing looks too messy and photoshoped.
I really like what I did here, wrapping the light around some reeds.. I'm not sure how it can link to the brief though!
I kept having more ideas using the light and it was a lot of fun so I tried out some more experiments, this time trying to draw symbols that represent youth, such as music and headphones.
I love the music symbol we managed to capture in this one.
This one works the best I think. Love the pink against dark blue. Only problem is you can see too much of the background, editing is needed!
The music symbols were quite hard to do but I think a few came out alright.
For some reason I thought I could be crying the music symbol, but it doesn't look very good!
Here is the edited headphones picture, I really like it but think it looks too teenagery and not sophisticated enough for the magazine.
EDITING EXTREME! looks cool though..
Finally I wanted to try bringing masks into it and see if I could somehow light them up, I also liked the idea of holding the light so produced a few more experiments...
Love this one, but again not really sure what to do with it or how it could relate.
These didn't work so well, time to move on I think...
