Fifth Project: Moths

This project was kind of a big experiment for me—first time using medium format film, first time developing color, and first time trying out multiple exposures. Originally, I was inspired by looking at a lot of fantasy and renaissance-style interpretations of Myths, and then as it progressed by a kind of circus freak show idea. I used NC400 color medium format film, took multiple exposures of each model on each frame, scanned it in, and manipulated the colors to get the blue hue. I wanted to take a bit of a risk, I feel like I tried to do too much and I’m not sure what I may have ended up with. I guess I’m curious as to what others see as uniting these photos or a theme or something?
