Create a series of between six and ten photographs from one of the following options: Crowds, Views or Heads. Or a subject of your own choosing.
For this assignment you’ll make a collection of photographs using a combination of lens techniques that you’ll decide for yourself. Your tutor will evaluate the series in terms of its technical skill but also on how well the assignment works as a whole.
All images were captured on a Canon EOS 750D camera with an 18mm – 55mm lens and in AV mode.
I must confess at this point that I have proceeded to take my self-reflection photographs in a state of slight confusion. Confused as to whether the most important issue in this Assignment is to demonstrate a range of lens techniques learned, or whether I should be using the same lens techniques throughout to make the series stick together as a cohesive set. I shall await feedback from my tutor with interest.
In the meantime, I hope I have demonstrated that I have learned my lessons from Assignment One, where one of the main criticisms was that my images were a little too ‘stock’. I have enjoyed capturing moments as they really are, without feeling the need to rearrange the backgrounds as I may have been inclined to do in the past. I have found this to be very liberating!
