El Chayote – One More for Lotería

December 4th, 2011 Permalink

Here’s a new one for my Lotería series. I whipped this one out this morning while the woman and her child were in LA. The green on green is a bit intense, but I think it will work with the rest of the series.

Los Platanos

Los Limones

Two more down for the Lotería set. I whipped these out yesterday with the new camera.

This project has been taking way too long – almost 5 years into it and I’m still nowhere near done. I think that the biggest problem that I had with it is that it has been a struggle for me to stay within the bounds of illustration as opposed to making art. I printed out a sheet of 9 fruit images and came to conclusion that some of the earlier pieces that I made for this project are a too far into the so-called realm of “art”. For this project, I should be thinking more along the lines of “commerce”. The redo of the Los Platanos image you see posted here is sort of the result of this realization. I’ve decided that all of the fruit images will stay within this general scheme of plain fruit against a solid background, the people images will stick to their particular scheme, the inanimate objects will have their own scheme and so forth. Who knows – maybe I’ll finish someday.

Lastly, the Panasonic GH2 worked like a champ – however, I discovered that it doesn’t support tethered shooting. D’oh!
