So, I spent today experimenting with embroidery over the top of my self portraits. The portraits are printed on 6×4 Photo paper which gives them a rather glossy, stiff finish. Piercing the photo paper with the needle and thread was a sort of therapy in itself as it created a sense of fragility within to a finished and structured piece. I want to experiment with colours and textures more. I also think it would look a lot more effective if the thread wasn’t as neat, almost ragged looking and more expressive. Which overall is the effect I am trying to create for my finished piece.
my boyfriend has recently become a rep for a new clothing company that in my opinion has some pretty badass designs. They asked him to get some shots of the clothing they sent him whilst also showing off his bmx skills. I decided this would be a good opportunity to practice my photography as well as getting the photographs for their new e flyer and blog.
