Due 6/30

The Photo Story project subject that I intend to focus on is my father, whom is an artist that focuses on watercolor, pen & ink, and acrylics. I plan on focusing most of all of my photos on the composition of him at work on several art pieces that he is currently working on, along with taking some up close photographs of his work in detail.

I want to focus on capturing him in his element of art making. I probably won’t transform the photos into black and white, as I want to be able to focus on all of the different pencil, watercolor and acrylic paint colors he uses to bring his artwork to life. I want to be able to play with some back light shadows, as I will be capturing the photos in our garage where his artwork station is. Playing with shadows and dark background lighting will help focus on him as the artist and the artwork he is making during the shoot, and draw attention away from the garage background noise of items.

I also plan on taking a short interview of him, focusing on why he enjoys making the specific artwork of style that he does of cowboys, indians, forrest scenes, mountain ranges, barns, using cloth, ect., and how it connects back to his home roots of Salt Lake City, Utah.
