Entry 003: Botanical
As part of my MA, one of the things that I have been really keen to do, is pick up where I left off in my BA study and push some elements of my final major project further forward. One of the things I have started to do in the last week is look back through some of my previous photography taken in the botanical gardens of Madeira. I created a range of hyper-edited visuals of surreal tropical flowers and botanical plant life in moody atmospheric inverted colours. I feel that as I progressed throughout my final major project, the intensity and drama of these images got lost under a super bright colour palette.
I really want to reuse these images as a starting point for the visual aesthetic of my MA project, and challenge myself to work within a more refined and sophisticated colour palette. I want to be selective about the brights that I incorporate.
Moving forward, I plan to continue looking back through all my previous unedited photographs to see if there are any interesting images that I've missed out previously. I also hope to plan a trip to Kew Gardens to gather some fresh photography. I'm keen to visit kew, as along with their palm and temperate houses, they have a Japanese garden which would be great to gather images of to begin bringing in an oriental influence.
