For the 32nd Scavenger Hunt, I had decided (even before the Hunt words were public!) to try to make a series with wooden manikins. And it worked out well, because there was an extra constraint on this Hunt: all the pictures had to be square, and the 10th was supposed to be a grid of the 9 other pictures. I like the square format, and I tend to crop in postprocessing rather than in camera, so this wasn’t much of a constraint for me – and since I had decided on a unifying theme already, this played out nicely!
I didn’t really shoot the images to “fit” a grid or a narrative (one constraint at a time 😉 ), but I was still fairly intentional in placing the pictures. The middle one (Denim) was the only one where I had the two manikins, so it needed to be in the middle. My idea for the grid was that the other pictures would represent some dreams they would be having while sleeping – and it kind of feels that these are weird enough to be believable dreams 😉 I placed the Spaghetti and the Hairbrush on opposite sides because they were both representing hair-related topics; and the other 6 I placed by trying to have some kind of directing line to the center.
And that’s it – this concludes the 32th Scavenger Hunt – which resulted in my favorite set ever in all the sets I submitted 🙂
