I did mention weeks or months ago that I am done with the fragments side project. Done in terms of making new photographs. I have hundreds and hundreds of selects that I now have to boil down into something cohesive. I'm not near ready to do that as I've proven to myself every time I sit down and try. There's a distinct possibility I won't hit my goal of June to be done printing and put that behind me.
What would posses me to make yet another set of photographs to add to the pile on that side project? Quite simply Alicia-Jo insisted this is what she wanted to make with me. Given this is the first time we worked together who was I to say no right?
Since I was in no need of any more material for the Fragments side-project two things happened. I made a few frames of everything I've learned and liked so far and chucked in a couple of new things as tiny as those might be they do change the way things feel a lot. I'll discuss how one tiny little prop or piece of wardrobe that you can see in some of these images really changes things from my perspective some other day.
I thought it would be fun just to put a placeholder out there for that discussion that includes what I normally consider BTS kind of frames as Alicia-Jo and I were just getting started in the first few minutes of exposure testing etc.
All photos made with the Fuji XT-1 and 18-55mm XF. Processing via Lightroom CC with VSCO FILM05 BW400CN applied on import.
