Skeleton - Still Life - Digital Camera

Like before, I placed dried flowers amongst the skeleton's bones as a contrast to the skeleton representing death but also as a similar theme as the flowers themselves were dead. I took these photographs with my digital camera and edited them to grayscale on Adobe Photoshop and increased the contrast.

 To contrast the theme of death, I used a model to pose with the skeleton. I decided to do this to represent the lose of a loved one and the dreams of being with them again.

Skeleton, Baby Shoes & Dried Flowers- Still Life - Film SLR Camera

Using my SLR film camera, I took photographs of a fake skeleton with dried, dead flowers weaved in amongst it's bones. I decided to photograph a skeleton as it represents death which is an experience in itself and also effects other people and how they feel. The dried flowers represent both life and death.
 Both these images are my test strips of two of the photographs that I enlarged in the dark room.

The photographs below consist of dried flowers and baby shoes. The dried flowers again represent death which is an experience we will only know once. The baby shoes directly contrast the dried flowers as they represent new life.
