Looking at the final outcome at the end of the 'Image' week, I was really content with my groups outcome, effort and commitment. We wanted to capture contrasting emotions with the the same (similar) body language. The images replicate the harsh contrasting emotions people feel as a result of psychological issues such as bipolar or split personality. We wanted to put a fashion spin on the emotions and turn them into a really beautiful emotive photo series.
We all worked together well and it seemed as though our ideas were along the same path and we had the same vision on what the images should look like and what message should be portrayed. I was really inspired and motivated by the concept and the ongoing process of planning and brainstorming that we all took. It was really encouraging to see everyone in the group work hard together and bring in materials to help the thought process and outcome come together.
I learnt to trust another group member with their ideas and to give others the opportunity to have their moment to explain and show what they envision. The hardest part of creating this outcome was the editing process because it was very difficult to cut down all the images to specific ones we actually needed to use. I think we could have experimented with make-up a little bit more and possibly have more props in each scene/emotion being portrayed.
