from my scanner...

autumn reflections!
It has been a while since the idea of using a scanner for image creating became rather appealing and the thought of devoting time exploring it more and more persistent... And so a few days ago reflecting on the end of summer - beginning of autumn, I felt getting in that "mood" and wishing to express and record it.
Here are samples of this very first attempt of mine, playing around with garden cuttings and quite losing the sense of when, where, why... The scanned images further adjusted in Photoshop, reflect exactly my  views on season change, of autumn's arrival.

The "model" for these images is a structure composed 100% with recycled materials! Store fliers printed on non glossy paper that somehow spoke to me and consequently inspired me to divide, cut, fold and then sew on strips of printmaking paper for what seemed an eternity!
What followed was my habitual photo shoot session. I always photograph my work upon completion, and often the images I create give me new leads, new material for further works and exercises.
These pictures are results of some good play-time on my computer, superimposing shots, playing with transparencies, with light and the overwhelming urge to "record" new ideas by creating multi-layered working "notes" for stories and story books to follow...
These images are good examples of when work and having a fantastic fun-time coincide!
