Early Abstractions? [TyAT Edition]

Early abstract experiments in digital photogrpahy 15th of August 2000

When I first started using digital cameras I was fortunate to have been given a then high end amateur type camera. Even at $2000.00 or so dollars it was far too “automatic” for my liking.  As a consequence I enjoyed trying to subvert these controls and make pictures that hinted at a photograph but could have been anything at all.
This is one example of my success in achieving this. I made this picture at home on the 15th of August 2000. Twenty years ago today.

In my early years of studying photography this kind of image would not have been considered. The success for me about this image is the mixed lighting sources firstly. Secondly the brief moment where the woman is glancing down on the CRT TV. These things combined with the kind of meta reference of the shadow of the tree outside. As an indexical marker a nice reminder of the light outside.
