Portraits & Light  

Okay, so this project has all been about dreams. I've been asking people to tell me a dream they've had and I've photographed them as they're talking. I will eventually work in quotes from what they've said into the photos but for now here are the raw images. They were shot with my Zenit-E on 35mm film, no photoshop manipulation! All that you see is done in camera. (well apart from the border....)

indeed it is :] great film, you have to watch it! just don't read anything about the plot, cos it'll ruin it completely!

these are so nice, the colours/haziness make them look really dream-like too (probably your intention!). i love the third one of the white haired man.

The white haired man is my dad :D
I'm hoping my hair will be white like that instead of grey when I'm older lol

Simply bloody wonderful.

I just love that it's worked out after being there for your test shots. :)

I adore the idea about getting people to talk about their dreams then snapping them mid-sentence too! :)

You've manage to catch the essence of the people somehow too. Stef is Stef in that picture and your dad is, from what I know of him, you dad, if you get what I mean? How they look and have acted, you know. lol

Good luck on the embellishments! :)
