Welcome to my Bannack Ghost Town Creative post! This was hands down my favorite thing I have ever done for school. Not only was it a blast but I learned SO MUCH!! I finally understand how to shoot manual mode on my camera and have pictures turn out the way I want them to!
My levitation pictures were the last thing I got on our field trip. I am so thankful for this model and being willing to help me towards the end. I liked his props and wanted to levitate them instead of him. If I were to do it again I would raise the cane a little more above his hand, so it was levitating more.
The ghost shot was the first thing we did as a group. We went down towards the end of the ghost town and found a random house with a sketchy dark room. I like how you can see the ghost’s face and knife in this picture, but it is also blurred from him moving around. Spooky.
This might be one of my favorite shots I took at Bannack. The texture of the wallpaper and bent nail really make this picture interesting. The old pattern of the wallpaper adds to the abstract look.
For my commercial picture I originally had a vintage camera I was going to make an advertisement for but once I looked at those pictures I made the decision to use them for my fine art blog post. I am glad I snapped some pictures of my Cotopaxi backpack that I could use for this assignment. This picture has an old, warm tone to it and it makes the logo on the backpack stand out.
For the conceptual assignment I had so many different ideas and then I stumbled upon this bird’s nest. There wasn’t anything in it sadly, but no one has to know. In this picture, the bird’s nest is the focus but I like how you can see into the house as well and the blurred window at the bottom.
