taken October 2008; Nikon D40
I transferred a bunch of old photos from my PC to my MAC. With it came a lot of experiments I did while on a cross-country road trip in 2008, such as the photograph above. I've been so focused on my 365 and am almost done with it, but now I'm starting to experiment outside of things I normally do. Writing with light? Oh, there will be more of that. I'm getting friends to do shoots with me in exchange for food and/or booze. I also found a small mirror that I'd like to find ways to include in shoots in a surreal way. My photography teacher in high school would get frustrated that I had pages in my research notebook on Magritte and Dali. "They don't relate to what you're doing!" Well, it may have taken me six years, but I'm going to use their influence to have fun experimenting with my photograph. They take surrealism to the next level with painting, I'm going to paint with light.
