You guys, I have been inspired. Like hard core. It all started in my photography class when we were told to look up Dorothy Shoes Photography. Here is just a few examples of the amazing I found.
Incredible right? You could only imagine my excitement when we were asked to create a shoot inspired by the lovely Dorothy Shoes. I basically died... like for real. I can't even tell you how quickly ideas were popping into my head. I had to get my notebook out and start jotting everything down.
I go through a strange process when I am putting photographs together in my head. When I get an idea I first imagine the entire photograph. The colors, the texture, and what I want in the photograph. I am a little obsessed with people, so basically all my ideas include them. This is my weird process when it comes to people for my photos. I basically just imagine a bunch of characteristics. Things like dark hair, bright eyes, light skin, etc. Not a face, just characteristics. After I figure that all out, then I try to think of people I know or could find that have those characteristics. Does anyone else do this? It is like you start with one thing, and basically paint the person into the photograph. I don't know. I am strange.
I really am just STOKED for this assignment, and can't wait to get started. Hopefully it all works out so I can share them with you guys. Wish me luck!
