In the final week of Introduction to Digital Imaging I focussed on completing Assignment #3, which entered the realm of surrealism. Because I have been battling a cold/flu, the time has been limited so I have only included a brief overview of my last submission.
This composition deals with the mystical reality of losing innocence, and the darkness in trying to locate our inner self. I have used imagery that is ‘scary’ and ‘dark’ but it is not my intention to say that these things are ‘bad’ only what these things can symbolise and our journey as human beings.

Play Has Fallen
This composition is a lighter take on surrealism. The concept was based on play and how as we grow older that sense of play changes and evolves. For many adults that playfulness is replaced by responsibility and the burdens of real life.

That, my friends, is a wrap on Introduction to Digital Imaging. I plan to have a recap post, with my grades and the things I learned through this interesting class.
