Firstly, sorry for the delay on this. I’m going to make sure, I do these posts routinely in future.
Coming up with some quick ideas, I decided that maybe Photoshop would be the best place to start playing around with the first few ideas, that I may have. At first, I wasn’t too big on the idea of doing that, but heck, I thought I might as well just try it and see where it goes.
It also helped me to think of how I was going to tackle how I could lay the images for the acetate prints.
I started to reflect on some previous experimentation, I had applied to my previous projects and I did keep in mind about the colour schemes. As my client was quite fond with the colour green and lilac, I tried to involve that with the image overlays. What I particularly enjoyed about these first sets of tests, was how crisp the texture of the clay came out in the photographs, and it let me recall back to the texture of the mold on decaying fruit.
Following on from this, I tried to think about how I could overlay the same image again, but in a different way. While, this part was quite straightforward, I simply couldn’t stick with a few of the ones I had tried.
From these, I wanted to see if I could try a more solid approach with the visualisations for the bowl. I was pretty intrigued by how well the shadows on the curvatures came out, and when you observe them in the imagery, they form a new set of shapes and marks.
Through this approach, I tried to overlay the same image again, but from these, I felt that this isn’t showing how fascinating these remarkable bowls are. They weren’t able to grasp the texture, or the details featured.
So, what I may have to consider, when it comes to experimenting with the photographs again, is probably thinking about how I can show the materials quality; the marks created in the material, that helps to put emphasis on the topic of decay.
