(I’m answering these way late, I realize…not really sure why I didn’t notice the huge mass of questions coming into this tumblr account)
Yes, I was at Roehampton to study art history and photography! :)
I just have to really believe in the project and the reason for public self-portraits. People will look and stare and whisper about anything out of the ordinary, but at least if you have confidence in why you feel like you’re breaking status quo you shouldn’t have to justify it to other people. And nobody has ever said anything rude to my face, but interesting to dream up an instance where people would be so annoying or agitated by my behavior that I’d get a comment like that. Hmm.
I’ll adjust curves ever so slightly to bring out shadows as my camera tends to favor grays and less saturated color. Occasionally I’ll adjust color if the indoor color temperature settings were incorrect at exposure. But that’s really about it! And thank you for your kind words!!
