Following on from a previous project of the same name Artificial Anatomy 2.0 will further explore the same themes of surface, shape and volume. These are a selection of test images intended to explore how the surface the skull is partially defined by a series of randomly projected contours and linear forms. Whilst the shape and form of the skull is partially revealed by the projected image the random spacing and shape of the lines also begin to warp the shape of the subject, producing some interesting results.
Daffodils growing during the months of spring are a refreshing sight after a harsh winter. These were a few I had in a vase on my table. When they did eventually expire I decided to capture some shots of them against a matte black background with the aid of two remote speedlights… some interesting and rather abstract results.
The intricacies and structural details found within any animal skull offer an amazing wealth of tone and texture for a photographer to capture. These photographs were taken of a Ram skull acquired from a friend of mine. When shot under controlled studio lighting, the surface texture and shape of the skull really come to life… so to speak. The skull offers something entirely different when shot from each angle. Things also start to get interesting when I begin fusing the images together in post.
