Series Proposal

Tentative Series Name:

Age of Consent

State Idea:

In this series, I will be focusing on portraits that are self/environmental to show my adolescence/teenage years. 

How will you execute your idea:

This series is important to be because I want to show/represent my youthful years of my life. The age I’m at now is one of the most remembered and important phases of our life and I want to show my life through portraiture. 

Why is this topic important to you? What do you want other people to understand? What do you hope this series will accomplish?

This topic is important to me because I see this project as an opportunity to express my personality and identity. It’ll show the viewers special moments in my life as a teen, my interests, my passions, the people I love, etc. What I ultimately want to accomplish alongside with the personality portion is a feeling of nostalgia. Regardless of when the photos were taken and when you see them, I want the viewers to be able to reflect back to “the good ol’ days.”And for them personally, that could be different from my reality, but regardless, they remember the most important and influential moments of their lives. 

Any special conditions, equipment, or techniques needed? 

Equipment:

–  Canon Rebel T5

– Canon 50mm prime lens 

– Tripod/stabilizer 

– Polaroid Impulse and instant film 

Output method and Size:

As of right now, I plan on using traditional prints, most likely 8×10 or 8x 12, depending on what’s available. I will also be include instant polaroid photos to help create the nostalgic mood I am hoping to achieve. I will include a handwritten caption on the bottom border of the photos to show the intimacy between me and the photo. 

Sketches:

Costco, Walmart, Kinkos, Walgreens

Best quality photo was probably Costco because I got the most detail out of all the other locations.

I’m most likely going to stick with Costco and possibly Walmart as an alternative. Adjustments to make are probably turn the saturation down a bit seeing it shows more in physical prints
