Mini Me

My recent photo project was a fictional narrative in which I decided to use little figurine people. In the end, it ended up being a reflection of me and certain aspects of my life. The first three photographs are the ones that were the most successful and effective in their execution. I plan on adding to this series of images.

Below are the photos that I feel were not as effective as the ones above for several reasons.
1. I do not like the look and feel of combining life-size objects within the scenes I created. It was agreed upon in class. I am glad, however, that I experimented with it.
2. The images are too literal.
3. The image of the multiple people was also not to my liking as it does not fully convey the message I intended it to and is not as pleasing as I initially thought it would be. I look at it, and I quickly move back to the other images above.

For my final project I plan on continuing with the exploration of this alternate perspective of life. I am not sure yet if I am going to continue with this series or start a new one. You will have to wait and see!

    Great set. It's particularly interesting given the recent fad for quick-and-dirty tilt-shift photography.This is a nice way to take expectations and turn them on their tiny little heads.
