I finished my mantel piece project. I'm moving into a new apartment in a few weeks, which got me into studying different mantel pieces. After looking at some for about two weeks, I dove in
and made some of my own. Its a contemporary outlook on what we project themselves as when they know what the intention of the photograph is. Many people try to act serious if you tell them to do so, but putting the idea that it will be displayed somewhere, like perhaps above a fireplace, the person will begin to project themselves differently. While I was photographing my subjects, I talked about things about them they would want to project, if they wearing any jewelry, or how pretty their hair looked. I also included myself, because I had a need to project myself about my mantel as well.
