This month I decided to combine two challenges from Lindsay’s book again.
First I chose “1 color” which I knew I would use my favorite color red. I set about grabbing as much red stuff I had to wear (trust me, there’s a bunch) and found that I really wanted to feature my red bowler hat which brings me to the next challenge…
“Recreate a famous Artwork in your own way.”
I don’t know about you, but when I think of Bowler hats & artwork, I instantly think of Rene Magritte.
I always enjoyed his paintings and considering I specialize in thematic portraits, surrealism is straight up my alley. Son of Man was my main inspiration:
My background was red, and along with the red bowler hat, I wore a red blazer and had a floating red apple complete it all.
Let’s just say this challenge was incredibly fun.
So this time, I had the opportunity to play, which is sometimes lost when shooting for other people.
May the light be with you.
