@Dill -- She mentioned about a year ago that she liked the idea of studying the history of "overseas" art. I thought she was either referring to an art course she was taking in high school or to wanting to enter an art university/college. Her first dark shot was of her father's piece "Mountain of Suffering," and I thought it brought out the suffering. I also liked her shot of her father talking to a group in dim light, with a long red piece bright and clear on the wall behind them. I have always thought she was looking at things. I loved how she seemed to be looking straight at the viewer through the camera lens, as if she was more interested in seeing what lay outside her than in showing herself to other people. Thanks for the link about Rembrandt lighting. I remember being in the Horyuji temple near Nara and watching a photographer setting up shots with a light and an assistant holding a reflector. I think Memi may be particularly interested in lighting because she herself was lit so badly in most professional photos: she needed to be lit from the side, and/or seen from a slight angle, to avoid seeming moon-faced, as she did under strong direct stage lighting. Her own selfies and shots by other members seemed to me the best photos of her we got. Memi said early on that she just became head of her middle-school art club because her sister had been, and that her sister was the real artist. I picture her sister going to an art college, and Memi wanting to join her there. I'm so glad her father is giving her these opportunities to create things and show them to people. The various cartoons she did as a member of Hiragana/Hinata all delighted me, starting with the quick portrait of Kumi she did during their first live. The more detailed self-portrait she did in a later DVD extra was much less impressive...although she looked great doing it, intent and real.
