The Solar System
I wanted to revisit my experience from yesterday when I attempted to capture color from a cd. I had an idea of adding water droplets which would, separately, catch color. Today's experiment was tricky. Trial and error. Last evening's dvd presentation reminded photographers to "look again". "Look more deeply" The dvd also prompted artists to not settle with a good photograph but to strive for more. I did that this morning. Initially I did capture a few images that I liked; however, it wasn't exactly what I wanted. These two images are closer to what I had in mind.
I imagined the rings of Saturn. I imagined the solar system. In that space color would gather in certain places and blackness would be found everywhere else. That image in my mind allowed me to keep shooting until the 'image came to me'. Hope you enjoy. P.S. I do teach really! My school images are always before and after school....well mostly :)
