Stars Go Blue

My second assignment at calArts, for my portraits class. We had to take a self portrait that described what the camera meant to us, and it had to be in our bedroom! This was a little hard for me, because I normally take photos outside, or in a lighting studio. However, I think it turned out quite nicely.

To do this photo I built a fort of sorts in my room. The background is a light blue bed sheet with yellow stars taped on to it. The tan part is my bed sheet, that I made into some sort of tent. I wanted to show how the camera is a way to show imagination for me, and that I can use it to make up any sort of story I wanted.
This photo was inspired by the work of artist Lissy Elle.
