I'm nor at all used to sitting and reflecting on matters, my MO is usually to do something, screw it up, do it again and so on till either I tire of it or it gets to where I want it to be. Now however I'm actively (or rather passively) trying to slow the process down. The new project is taxing me as I ruminate over various texts and images trying to establish exactly what I might want to get from the assignment. Portraiture it will be (unless some very active dissuasion is employed) but what and how is still up for grabs. I have tried taking a few but so far all I've discovered is that it is a harder task than I'd imagined - so the technical issues of making an image are starting to raise their ugly heads. This was always going to happen, so better sooner than later, but it will mean a lot of additional work. The subjects I'm now thinking ought to be grouped in some meaningful way.
