I’m not gonna do photos like this for awhile. I like…NO, adore this photo. And Brittany? She’s aces.
But what’s happening here? Where the deuce are we? This is me taking a photo of a person in the middle of an abandoned forest, there’s no story, there’s nothing Happening.
Any context or narrative I give you about this shot will be things surrounding the photo. The photo itself is…well, not nothing, but that was my first impulse, to say it’s nothing. It’s telling you nothing, showing you nothing. It’s a gem (hopefully an expensive shiny oh so shiny gem), but I’m feeling lately I don’t want to make gems, I want to make stories.
Which looks a big mountain to climb, laying it out like that. When I put it that way, I see in my head lots of props and locations and giant productions.
I don’t want that.
I want less a thing in amber, more a thing in motion. Surrounded by motion.
I do not want to make dioramas. I do not want fancy storefront displays.
Maybe if I keep laying out what I Do Not Want, I can figure out what to actually do next.
