Hello, My name is Keri. I am in the process of completing my Photography course at Seminole State College and I need some help with my Portfolio due within the next few weeks.
I have decided to make my portfolio very personal, and choose some shots that some might think odd. However, not so strange, its a lot like photographing tattoo's or different works of art on the body, SO I have chosen to take pictures of BURNS, since i have 2 noticeable burns. You might think...it's a bad choice, and therefore please disregard this post. I do not, and this is something personal and provides me with much strength. As a child i was shunned, made fun of and it was very hurtful. As an adult, things are different now, but still i have chosen to overcome this and not let these scars run or control my life.
BACKGROUND: I was 11 months old when i was burnt by hot water on my left arm, left side of head and i have skin graphs on each thigh.
REASON: This piece of art (pictures) are about strength, able to overcome visible scars and feel secure in my skin
NEEDING: ANY age, Needing children and adults please. i can suggest poses and have some ideas., but whatever you are comfortable with. If you do not want your face in the picture for any reason, it's your choice. This is all personal and confidential. If you would like these pictures, i can also mail you a copy.
For those of you who have a burn and want to participate, If you would like any other picture, as in a family portrait or just because, just ask, as I love taking pictures and will be happy to send you any copies you want that i take.
