  4. The 9th photo in the series, I really liked this one. I’m always interested in strange photograph techniques that can look pretty weird, as I listen to ‘witch house’ music which incorporates this style of photography in it’s aesthetic.

    I’ve always done self portraits, so this only gave me better ideas as to what types of photos I could make for my photo series.

    The ideas I have mainly come from #9 and #13. I really like the way these photos were shot.

  6. The photo that gave me an idea of what to do for the photo series was the photo of the the man holding a picture of when he was younger and having it over half his face. No w I have the idea of doing a self portrait series of myself. I could also do it of someone else to get a better view of someone else life. My ideas now are either gathering photos of me throughout my life and grouping them in different categories to get an idea of my life throughout my years of life but also take images from things I plan on having in my future and where I’ll end up. Or I could do that same Idea but of another person.

  7. I think the space one was really cool looking. To be honest I have thought of it before but I don’t know how to do it. I could try to do it but I don’t know if I will do it right. After viewing these photos I really try to do the one that the guy with a smoke head got me interested.

  9. Which photos contained in the link above give you an idea of what to do for your photo series?
    I liked the idea of the guy in the camera with his hands sticking out and clicking the button. That gives me the idea of making someone pop out of the canvas.

    Have you thought about doing a self portrait series prior to this?
    No, I never really thought of doing a self portrait. Now it seems more interesting, and not as plain.

    Could you do the same techniques with another person throughout a five image photo series?
    Yes, I would be able to do some of the techniques I saw in these images.

    Which ideas do you have after viewing all of these photos?
    Like I said, I would make someone pop out of the normal canvas, and make it seem like it is coming out and is in 3D

  12. The one picture that gave me an idea for this photo challenge is the guy in the Vietnam gear and the camera over his neck. No not really but now its a total possibility, doing a self portrait would be a great photo for this challenge. I feel like a could implement these techniques into the series. I feel like just taking your time and taking passion in your work is what will get you the best of your own ability.

  13. they were all very creative however it didn’t give me any ideas as I’ve settled with my topic and what i want to shoot. i did not think of a self portrait for the photo series but it would be a good idea and also it would work if it was the same person with different techniques, if anything it’d be more interesting than the same technique being used repetitively but after viewing these it give me the idea that i should try to look at things and emotions differently and allow myself to think of new things and methods to represent them.
