I have not progressed to the point on my series Bad Trip – Sad Trip that I need to be thinking about the organization of the images, first on my web site and subsequently how would I arrange the images for an exhibit or in a book. Ideally all three of these organizations should be somewhat consistent.
Recently I have laid out the images on the floor to get a large overview look at them or I have been looking at the images as I have them posted on my gallery web site. My initial posting of this series on my web site was a first created, first posted. Thus the images were serially placed for no reason than thats the order I either photographed them or set up my files and created the final image. Okay, up to now not much thought the image flow.
Now I am becoming aware of my web gallery sequence and I am starting to adjust the order of images and where they appear. I do know that my lead image is Randy, which is the first image in the upper left (the Anglo reading process, left to right, top to bottom). So now I am thinking about how to anchor the series with the last image. Which one? As well as the series progresses, which images stay (the keepers) and which of the “weaker” children must go.
As a goal, I hope to have a basice sequence figured out by the end of this week end. I also have one empty spot in the web site that I need to fill in as well, and I have more than one candidate. hmmmm. Expect some changes, even after I proudly announce that I am “done”!
Ah, the creative process, you just gotta love it!
