My sister

My sister is now living in Oregon. This is slightly inconvenient when I'm working on making images that talk about my family, and she's not here. So, I had an idea on how to keep including her, as well as talk about her absence. This is just a digital image of my idea. The light wasn't right at the time, so I didn't want to waste film. Thoughts?

Hi SB,

I am really glad that you made this image. As I mentioned before, I think some experimentation would help you to get excited about the project again. Experimentation at this point in a project can be scary since you are trying to solidify the ideas, not open things up. But I find that if I open up some, then it actually helps to tighten up the ideas later down the road.

As far as the actual picture, I like how both your sister and Mom are wearing blue. It's a really simple way to create a relationship between the two. I also like the contrasting expressions. Your sister seems happy, while your Mom seems melancholy.

I think your goal should be to experiment as much as possible within the project.
