You're very talented. Try experimenting with the subject moving around. Remember, if you're using a flash, it will freeze the action. Also try slow sync: very slow shutter speeds with the flash. Try with a tripod/without. If you're using film (I think you are -or does no one use film anymore?) You have to keep in mind the different light temperatures - white light, incadescent etc... There was a technique I used to use to get some interesting sureal, multi-images. I used T-max 3200 B&W (Do they even make that anymore?). Anyway, use a real high ISO. Shoot with ambient light. Have your subject stay still. Figure what you real exposure should be and shoot using the bulb setting on your shutter speeds, hand holding the camera on the subject for the appoximate exposure. Now, (don't lift your finger) with the shutter still open, move the camera around. Spin it, zoom, move your subject to a different part of the frame and hold the camera there for the appoximate lenth of exposure. Focus on every object you want in the picture, placing them in different areas of the frame by moving the camera. The key here is you want very slow shutter speeds, and small aperatures (F22 if possible). What you are doing is keeping the shutter open for the whole exposure, while you move the camera around, hesitate on the subject, and move around again. When you feel there's emough to fill up the frame, or you have the motion effect you want, release the shutter. This works well at night, or in the studio as long as ther are only 1 or 2 light sources.
Anyway. It's very refeshing to see a young artist out there who realizes that they can't use the same technique over and over. I can't tell you how many times I've been to shows where the so called "artist" uses only one techique, literally taking the same photo over and over, even painting or sculpting the same thing repeatedly. Some make a carear of one idea. Oh well. Good luck to you!
