A spectral form
I had planned out what I wanted the photographs to look like, then waited for the perfect weather conditions at home to capture them - I wanted the photographs to be of a figure wearing the pieces I had made up on a snow covered hillside behind my house, with a couple of pictures in the forest behind. I had hoped the snow would make the pieces stand out more, and I wanted them on the hillside so I could recreate Matisse's 'La Danse (I)' by superimposing several images on photoshop.
The reason why most of the photographs she had taken by the end were unusable, and why I now particularly like
So although I had to retake pictures of my pieces (here) because I couldn't use any of the photographs from this first shoot in my art project (as they weren't focused enough to show the detail), I love the accidental eeriness from the first set.
The unintentional blurry effect (similar to this post) looks like a sinister morphing figure to me - which I like, and the still forest ones are equally strange and eerie, especially because of the patches of snow on the
