The Bleeding Rose
Art 435 Apprentice Project #1. For this assignment I had to view Jeff Bark's website (www.jeffbark.com) and explore his "Abandon" gallery. Based on my observation I had to simulate a photoshoot incorporating his method used throughout this collection. Of course my assigment's props, etc. did not have to be as elaborate as Mr. Bark's (also I was not required to use a nude model:)
My interpretation was that (natural) lighting lit the main object in the scene with the surroundings left "in the darkness". Plus Mr. Bark purposesly placed each prop in it's place. I took special care to place each item in it's exact place to capture the natural light as best I could.
Keep in mind this is my first attempt at this type of photography. I enjoyed this assignment and I think I captured the essence of the theme.
