Photography is an Emotional Process!

I’d like to start with a quote before I get the ball rolling.

“A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you, the less you know.” Diane Arbus

Still Life with a Skull and a Writing Quill, 1628

I Am a Photograph

When you look at a photograph, what do you see?

The picture, the story or a small part of me?

How do you feel when you look deep inside?

Do I make you feel happy or does your smile start to slide?

I am a photograph and I will signify to you.

My denotation has hidden meaning, if only you look through.

I may look two dimensional but my layers are many, if you look.

I have connotations, just like a completed book.

And just like the ingredients that kick start the taste buds, into motion.

I am a photograph!

I am an emotion!

So the task was to photograph still life and to portray a given emotion. If the message isn’t clear look deeper and see if you know what emotion it is that I am trying to convey.

It was a difficult task with many different aspects to consider, like lighting, colour, props, angles, layout, camera settings, lenses to name but a few.

I hope you enjoy the image and figure out the message. Leave me a comment with your answers of what emotion you think this image is delivering or not if you think I haven’t done a very good job. Unless of course you are my peer and already know, because that would be cheating!!
