For my fairytale final I will try to recreate The Sleeping Beauty. I’ll have my sister help me out, as she always does. She will play two characters, Aurora as the princess and Maleficent. I’ll use some props that we have around the house and mostlikely use a dark background for the pictures, I want to give it a dark twist. I’ll be using minimum lighting and some cellophane sheets to give it a dark enchantress look.
Visiting the Museum of the City of New York was a great experience. Through a different Lens- Stanley Kubrick Photographs and Interior Lives Contemporary Photographs of Chinese New Yorkers were two of the exhibit I visited. Stanley Kubrick was known for working for Look magazine, but he’s also known as filmmaker. With the experience he gathered he later when on becoming a director for such amazing films 2001: Space Odyssey and A Clockwork Orange. Kubrick’s work always told amazing stories through he’s images, his focal point was life in New York City. He was inspired by the daily life of people in NYC, from celebrities, families, to kids at the park.
The exhibit of Interior Lives- Contemporary Photographs of Chinese New Yorkers also showed how Chinese immigrants lived life in NYC. Capturing the harsh living conditions of the families. The photographers showed the identities and the places this New Yorkers lived.
The lighting on this picture was placed to the right on a high angle giving the flowers a more dramatic look.
