Behind the Scenes of the Hiroshi Project!

So here it finally is! My Hiroshi project final. I had such a blast getting to do this project and being so silly. We went to deer creek beach and my amazing best friends and models were such troopers as we painted them head to toe! We even plastered sand to Jo’s body. It was the first day of fall and the weather was very chilly! But they were amazing and stuck it out! Thank you, guys so much for everything 🙂

Photo Sensitive materials- Infrared Project

I started this project in my Photo Sensitive Materials class and it was my first time getting to use Infrared film and the color wheel of lens filters. I absolutely love using this film and found a new love of using filters. I would love to continue using Infrared film. I just love the way the sky pops with red and yellow filters.

My idea for these photographs was to go to the Deer Creek beach which is about 10 minutes from home and show how empty and desolate the beach becomes during the fall, after the summer when everyone has left and the air gets chilly. Even though it is so empty, it is still beautiful in its own way and that is what i’m trying to show.

Thoughts on the Hiroshi project

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about this project lately about what I would like to accomplish, design-wise. I’ve decided to go with the first sketch that i used on my “sketches2” post. Where I will be setting my model against the background and painting them to blend in with the scenery. I’ve also been thinking about the idea of making these photos into a continuous photograph, making a triptych type of piece but with more photos. 

As for my statement, I know exactly what I from this project and what i want to do but i have some thinking to do about what i want it to say and mean, or what i want people to get from it. Keep posted and i’ll let you know what i decided to do with it.

Here, I’m including a photo of an example that I love, by a paint on model artist named, Alexa Meade.

Project Hiroshi Part 1

For this project in my Design for Media class, I will be combining the inspirations of two photographers, one being  Heroshi with his figure of landscape photography. The other photographer actually covers his subjects in the actual material of the earth. I want to combine the two and put my models into different landscapes and cover their bodies in a camouflage so it will be hard to pick them out of the scenery in the photograph. To camouflage them, I would like to use paints and also the natural materials like leaves, dirt or grass. I would like to take my models to places like the beach, the woods, old mans cave and a few types of fields. I have 4 weeks to work on this project and I would like to separate each location to a separate date. For the first week, here are my first sketches and beginning ideas.
