For my program at Algonquin College, I had to take six images (3 criteria and 3 self-directed) for my portfolio this semester. The portfolio was also required to have a theme, and mine was cinematography or what I prefer to call "An Ode To Cinema." Rather than just simply focusing on films and television shows, I researched and looked at different styles of lighting and colour schemes within cinema to see how it's used to construct certain emotions and tones to enhance the visual/auditory experience for the viewer. Check out my images below and learn a little bit more of the thought process behind each.
Furiosa: Mad Max Inspired
For this triptych, I rented out a junkyard in order to get the theme of this image. As a kid, Mad Max was one of the more interesting movies to have seen, and I was really entranced by post-apocalyptic aesthetics and beliefs. I really wanted a story to be hinted at, but not overtly present within the image, so that people could make their own assumptions and associations. For digital editing, I added a stippling brush effect to pay homage to the pulp fiction-esque type of films that are associated with the post-apocalyptic narrative, to help tie together the theme.
