Heading into Fall always causes mixed emotions in me. I’m definitely a summer person. I like the heat so much more than the cold. This is the time that I look back on the summer months and take stock. Did I have a good summer? Properly take advantage of the weather? But I have to say that, yes, I’m feeling a great sense of accomplishment these days.
Photographically, I finished a project that I’ve been working on for a long time. And finished it in such a way that I feel like I broke new ground, while staying true to what inspires me as an artist.
I was explaining it to some friends of mine the other day. I’ve been very happy with the work I’ve been creating over the last three years, but in terms of a undertaking a huge project with a theme, I’ve never quite managed to get all the planets lined up until the past month with the Black Pond Series.
Last week I went through the process again of moving the studio to the location where I build the Black Pond set and had the chance to complete a few more ideas that we couldn’t complete the first shoot last month.
I was so happy with the first round of shooting that I didn’t want to put myself under too much pressure the second time and we decided to just have fun and experiment with the remaining concepts on the list. We looked at the second few days of shooting as gravy.
This image is from the latest few days of shooting. This summer was definitely a success.
