Week Six by uglybug Week Six by uglybug
Week six. Theme: Street.

This week's self portrait was fairly improvised. I had about five concepts in mind and, with the help of my wonderful assistant Bex, dragged a chair, a watering can, pyjamas (?!) across town to the location to play with. I've ended up going for a much simpler shot than I'd originally envisioned, as I like it better as a picture. This was the first time I've shot a self portrait with an audience and I'm happy to say it wasn't anywhere near as scary as I'd expected! Bring on next week's 'monster' theme :D

Daily Deviation

Given 2014-09-14
Week Six by uglybug is a clever self-portrait and the first time the photographer captured herself with an audience which can be very daunting! Regardless, movement and colours enhance the model and the blurred background finishes the capture off perfectly. ( Suggested by freaky208 and Featured by Kaz-D )

I like how dynamic this shot is; at first, it looks like the model is turning over her shoulder to look at the camera (or beyond it to her left, actually) but it takes an extra moment of examination to notice that's an illusion of the flow of her hair than that she just has her head turned to her left.

Great sense of complexity masked by simplicity; could easily be mistaken for a still from a film shoot.
