Surfaces and Strategies – Work In Progress Portfolio – Versions 4 and 5
Versions 4 and 5 are essentially the same. Version 4 contains images though that needed tweaking – they had a haze around the body part in some cases. This was corrected in version 5.
Final tweaks are now required to version 5 to produce the final body of work.
The following images need to be replaced.
Figure 1: Sutherst. 2017
The model allowed me to shoot her self-harming scars on her legs and used her fingers to draw attention to the marks.
The edits have left the finger nail looking dirty and this is not a complementary look.
However, the texture of the skin and highlighting of the hair follicles is well lit and defined.
Figure 2: Sutherst. 2017
This image is weaker than the rest of the portfolio. The fingers are not abstracted and does not work as well in the body of work as the others.
Figure 3: Sutherst. 2017
This image is much brighter than the rest of the portfolio. I do prefer the composition and framing of another image (figure 4) I have used in the other versions of the WIP, but will need to edit the partial tattoo off that image to make it a stronger image.
