At the beginning of second semester I posted a photograph that was inspired by Rineke Dijkstra. For my classes last blog post the chosen artist was Laura Letinsky who does a lot of still life work with a large format film camera. I liked the simplicity that came with using a white table cloth. I originally had a different picture with a tea cup rather then strawberries but I found it too boring. The red gives it more power and brightens the image as a whole.
It’s been more then a week since i’ve posted which is quite shocking since lately it seemed as thought I was posting almost every other day. I apologize sincerely! Recently i’ve been playing around with 4×5 Large Format film photography in school, both colour and black and white. Although frustrating to drag the equipment anywhere besides the studio the results are more then worth it.
I’ve had a lot of school projects lately so i’ve been working in the studio a fair amount. I’ll be posting all my 4×5 photographs sometime at the end of this month or early March. However, these are from two different still life assignments. The first had to have either a flower or fruits and vegetables. The second could be anything. Oh, and i’ve recently joined 500px so you can follow me there by clicking here.
