se·ries (sîr'ēz) pronunciation
noun, plural -ries, adjective
A number of objects or events arranged or coming one after the other in succession. [Latin seriēs, from serere, to join] Series is applied to a number of things of the same kind, usually related to each other, arranged or happening in order: a series of baseball games.
I've never intentionally taken a series of photos like this before. And I have to say the most difficult part for me was deciding what I wanted to photograph. Should I make a bunch of crazy faces, or write a sweet sentence on paper one word at a time? I don't know what made me decide to jump.....maybe it's because I was thinking about being outside, or that I love it when my photos have movement?!? But it felt great. I felt free and happy and strong and silly all at the same time. And I've actually never taken a self portrait jumping before, so this ended up being a fun little experiment. (Next I want to try it in a field with tall grass or something crazy like that.) But the cool thing is that now don't just have a moment to remember, but a bunch of moments that tell my little story in a different way. This was a happy day. A great day. A day I did just what I wanted to do....jump. What will your In Series be?
A series of pictures to me gives movement to paper. It takes me to that moment because I feel you can see it move. You can see a clip of that person's life. Its almost touchable. I chose movement of my hands because it looks free and pretty to me. I like the freedom of movement....
