Final Project

In wanting to capture the feelings of depression: loneliness, emptiness, overwhelmed, despair and anger. I used darker values in my images along with psychic line to help convey the desired feelings. Despite the overwhelming feelings felt when depressed, I kept the images simplified, leveled and focused purely on one emotion at a time.

As someone who suffers from but is also trying to work through my depression, capturing and trying to visually put my emotions into images helps to communicate what I am feeling inside. I chose to use a subject other than myself, since it was easier for me to direct. Consequently, this allowed me an opportunity to get an outsider's view of depression.
