A 300 image slideshow might be interesting if the images somehow segued into each in some way such as by subject, color, shape or whatever, rather than just clicking along randomly. Once in a while something surprising can emerge out of accidental arrangements, but it's rare. Wouldn't be surprised if engaging sequences could be assembled from this lot that would add up to something more than just the images. If that guy was my student, that's what I'd have him do.
Well, I'm sure he has some good material with which to start!
I’d begun my own Biscuit Tin gallery with much that idea in mind: a chronicle of my somewhat mundane daily life. What do you want from a creature of habit?
Then, thinking about it, it dawned on me that life doesn’t come along in neat and packaged doses – that’s medication – and that you have to take it as it presents itself. The next thing that I realised was that planning it ahead of the material (a gallery) takes too long; see below.http://youtu.be/dGzIjeKynco
So, I abandoned that concept quite soon but did attempt to impose a sense of order, of graphic design in the way that the available shots appear in the contact sheet. For which, of course, you require a contact sheet.
In the end, the important thing is to continue shooting something that tickles your fancy, and problems arise when there’s nothing left that tickles. As someone wrote – I think it was Robert Roaldi – I might worry too much. Of course, I can’t know this because I can only be me as I am at any one time, even though I might have frequent changes of mind, but with each change I encounter total belief in the new position. Flexible… ever open to new stimulants, despite the existing habits that maketh the creature, as mentioned above.
