Shoot for the joy of it. You'll thank yourself.
Often times when we are working we feel that it needs to have some grand purpose to be worth while. We think it needs to be published or make money or....something! The photos need to go somewhere or they need to be seen. Personally, I do plenty of shooting with a purpose. I find a unique kind of joy in shooting for the sake of creating.
I certainly had ideas in my mind going into the shoot. I had some sort of visual goal and direction I wanted to take it, but I shot a lot of film with this shoot in order to keep the spontaneity alive. I didn't want anything to be too forced or stiff, especially since we were shooting indoors in a small space, where the light only looked good from a few precious angles.
My favorite part about this shoot was the way the pinks and greens showed up on the film. The green happens in images that are film which I shot with Kodak 400 35 mm film. Ways of experimenting included double exposures and using my prism to play with the light. I will continue to play and push with my primary audience being myself.
