Cubomania

Have y'all heard of Cubomania before? I hadn't before this week! That was our assignment in Photography, and let me tell you... I've never felt more like Pablo Picasso before. Why? Take a look at what it is!
Trippy, right?? But super fun. Of course, I went a bit more extensive than we needed too so it took me forever!
And if you want to see a color version...
I'm not entirely sure what I was going for in this design... I knew I wanted to focus around her camera in the middle, and then I just wanted it to be fun and whimsical. And super random! That's why I did the varying sizes in the squares/rectangles. For the black and white, I just wanted something sort of vintage and whimsical -- like the old abstract paintings. They all display some sort of emotion, and I guess I wanted to portray something like that too? I'm not really sure.
(Fun fact: my image contains over 55 shapes, all making up the original image)

When looking at your photos I wondered what the image had been. You skillfully took the pieces and were able to create something interesting and beautiful. I love how you twisted some of the pieces which allowed you to use them in an interesting way. The lighting in image helps to create a softer image which when changed into the different pieces helps to add to the overall view. The use of the soft images combined with those shadows helps to draw your eye to the center. Adding the image in black and white as well helps to give it a more vintage feel. I love both because each is creative, interesting, mystical, and mysterious.

Really well done on this assignment. I especially agree with the comment above. I love the way you rearranged the pieces and the black and white version as well as the color version. I like the way you built the final image around the camera lens.

I love how you did this assignment, the final photo looks like it's a swirl, kinda. :) In your photo, I can tell that you actually took the time to arrange them in a logical order. The original photo is really great too, I love how her skin is glowing. Great job on this assignment!

I really like how you used a combination of squares and rectangles in varying sizes. Even with that they all manage to flow. I think that it is awesome that you did both a black and white and color version of the photo, if I had to pick my favorite it would probably be the black and white version.

Wow ... Just WOW you did such an awesome job on this! The way you had it both in color and black and white is so awesome and I just love the way you arranged the picture. I wouldn't change anything.
