Thought Experiment: Part 3

Stories are always better when more than one person is involved. I asked Caitlyn some of her side after sending over the draft of what I was going to post.

My Side: This experiment started to figure out reactions. So far has lead to lots of laughter…. and more laughter. It’s also made me realize I need to get better at asking questions.

I asked Caitlyn to wear a couple outfits… - one that she was totally comfortable with (seen in the previous post) - one that she wasn’t totally comfortable with (pictured in this post)

I ended up asking a bunch of questions about why she picked what she did and this outfit was basically a laundry day outfit and some other questions. She confronted me on this as being pretty lame.

In the end…. the exact same expressions from the camera side … and pointing at me laughing happened.

I was thinking that the outfit might change answers or positions or something and it didn’t really. However, Caitlyn had some thoughts. What was on the outside, didn’t totally reflect how she felt on the inside.

Caitlyn’s Side:

I know that as far as facial expressions, I was very much the same across questions/outfits, and that is probably due in part to my tendency to be extra expressive and in part to the fact that your questions didn’t have any bite to them. ;-)

However, I feel like my body felt very different in each outfit - when I was more comfortable, I felt far more relaxed, like I moved my body more, where as with the uncomfortable, I felt like I was trying to take up less space in the world, my hands moving less frequently, a desire to hide myself a little more. Maybe the reason my face looked the same is because it was the only part of me I really felt comfortable with being photographed at that moment, no matter the question.

I think the outfit did change things, just maybe not the way you were looking for them to.

Another of Sarah and the ring light. For a big part of the shoot, I tried to get the ring light out of the glasses, then I just worked with it and moved it around inside the glasses.

Thought Experiment : Part 2

Here’s Caitlyn. This was from one look in the studio where I started asking her questions. For this look I had her wear something completely comfortable.

The original goal was to tell a facial reaction and take that picture. That happened… but, watch the hands. Every pose basically has something different.

Oh… and we basically spent the entire time laughing. There’s that.

The last picture is her laughing at me because I had my lens cap on or something similar.

I have a few more in this series that I’m queueing up.

Strobist: Ring light to the right.

From a portrait set that was skater themed and these poses happened. I’m pretty sure what I said was “smile… more” … and this is the reaction.
