Submission: Around the kitchen

Around the kitchen1

OK - So sorry this is late.  RL has got in the way of this assignment.  But after several abortive attempts I have realised that I don't have a photogenic kitchen.  So I pressed someone else's into service.  This still isn't exactly what I wanted. I wanted to get someone in the picture doing something - but couldn't coerce her!

Anyway here is my A-round in the kitchen submission.  It's also a self portrait if you look closely

Assignment: Around the Kitchen

For this assignment you will be shooting in your kitchen. This is a nice broad topic, anything that is in the kitchen is fair game. The submission deadline will be November 12.

Self Portrait

Better late than never. I had a short stay in the hospital and this has been a long time coming. My apologies to my fellow posters here.

Submission: Self

This wasn't what I was after either, but what I was aiming for didn't really work. In the end I decided to take my inspiration from old movie stills - they tend to use quite dramatic lighting, be quite high contrast images and be fairly moody. They also loved to use props, in my case my new retro wallpaper!

Submission: Self


not what I had envisioned when I set this project - I'd had a different idea entirely - but hours of combing flickr looking at self portraits gave me this idea.  Also hides my bent tooth!  Bonus.
A little early because I'm not around tomorrow for the deadline.

New assignment! - Self

Assignment:  Take a self portrait of yourself that you are happy to show to others!  Use studio-lights or flash if at all possible - or at least do something creative with the light.  And just pretend that a friend has asked you to take a portrait of them, so you want to give the best photo back of the subject - its just the subject this time is you.

Rules: I'm hoping for a traditional portrait shot where you will be recognisable (mostly) so no backs of heads or complete silhouettes.  But so that we can be creative if you want lets set a boundary that at least one eye must be visible in the picture.

Deadline: End of day 28 June.
New Deadline:
End of day 12 July (two weeks - to allow Aaron to celebrate 4th July without worrying! )

Kate gave me the idea for this when we were trying to find some new people to join, so lets try it.
