The first shoot that I did was for the still life idea.I have been trying to figure out what objects to use, I wanted to use fairly mundane objects to represent the different aspects of what a bed is used for. I think I am sticking with a general use of beds, not simply what I use it for as I have an idea to use death and I am still quite alive.
The first thing I started to think about what what aspects do I want to show? Which ones interest me?
Since the beginning of the project I have known that I would like to produce black and white images, I am not entirely sure why, I have just had the intention to do so. Perhaps Duane Michaels work inspired me.
From here I explored my surrounding to find objects that correlated with my ideas. The first shoot was comprised of:
I was please with how the turned out, especially the sex images.

If I continue with this idea what is the narrative behind my work?
The Narrative would be what we use our beds for. A short and simple narrative
