“A picture is a secret about a secret, the more it tells you the less you know.”
― Diane Arbus
This month’s Photography Styling Challenge required us to shoot Bedrooms. The bedroom theme is the first theme to really highlight true interior styling/staging. We have a living room coming up later, but bedroom it is now.
Now, like it happens in all my challenges, I freaked out for this one too. Diwali preparations and my child’s annual day rehearsals added to the mania.
To shoot interiors can get very very challenging especially for novice photographers like me. I like to believe I was born without an aesthetic sense of styling, so my fears are compounded when I am required to stage or style. If you ever happen to visit my house, you will notice we don’t clutter and have spare, minimum furniture. No fancy vases, no lamps. Not many decorative pieces. Sigh. In reflective moments, I’ve concluded that my sense of de clutter is an intrinsic fear to clean more 😉
Well, after myriad arrangements, stylings and shoots, here I am choosing my simplest photograph. I shot this initially and later went on to stage but after some very frustrating, harrowing innumerable moments with the stuff inside the room, somehow, this picture just spoke like a thousand words(quoting Bonaparte).
I have a host of adjectives describing this single photograph of mine but would love to read your interpretations. So what does the shot say to you, does it tell a story or has it made you curious or is it too plain and boring. Anything.
