|Container (1). David Hayes, 2016.|
A cold day in December, no real idea as to what I wanted to accomplish but wanting to do something...perfect recipe for a little "faffing"! So...I grabbed a concrete bowl I had made over the summer and some "this and thats". These three images make up my Container three of a kind...

All three were shot using my iPhone6 native camera app and processed on my iPad. As for the app(s) I used...I truly don't remember but it doesn't look like I did much to any of these images other than the usual exposure and contrast corrections. Sometimes simple is best....

|52 Cards (2/52). David Hayes, 2016|
I used the apps Stackables and Hipstamatic to create this week's final version. I started with a very basic card and let the apps do the heavy lifting this time around!
Here's the "source image":

|Messy. David Hayes, 2016.|
A new year calls for new projects. More on that in a bit...
First, finishing up an old project...the Be Still workshop with this final image...Messy. Our last prompt asked us to "make a mess" in the process of creating....and shoot it top-down. Whilst I toyed with several different ideas based on this prompt, I decided to go with the "mess" I created starting my first new project of the new year. Not quite a still-life but even still I do like the abstract quality of this image. So there you have it!
Let's talk about my new project...which will help make more sense of Messy. I'm borrowing a workshop concept created by Seth Apter over at The Altered Page. He asks his participants to take a deck of playing cards, coat both sides with black gesso, and then go at each card...collaging, assembling, creating...a different work of art on every card. My project is to take this idea...and go one step further. After I collage/assemble a card I will then scan it into my iPad and "finish" it digitally. I've always wanted to find a project where I could blend my mixed-media side with my photography...and here it is! My goal is to create a new card every week for the entire year...and here's the first one!
52 Cards. (1/52). David Hayes, 2016.
Just for fun, here's the card before I "app-ed" it:
I'm excited about the possibilities of this project...should be interesting to see what I come up with each week. Do check back!!
