|Into The Light—Banana Heaven Awaits © 2012 Matthew Moore|
What would your life be like if you were a piece of fruit? Would you have friends, a job, offspring? What challenges would you have? Would you have enemies, predators or prey?
In the above images, I played with light and focus to express what a banana might experience at its end-of-life. I wanted to portray a top-down background light in an ominous way as to suggest "going into the light" and a soft out-of-focus essence to create a dream-like state. Luckily in post-production, I was able to create two different stories with the same shot. One where the banana was looking to the light much like a moth does to a flame just before perishing and the other as if the banana's spirit was moving towards the "heavenly light" on its final breath.
