Assignment 2 Submission

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!

  1. You do refer to the brief asking for a combination of lens techniques and I think you’ve chosen a good selection here in addition to provide a really interesting set of self-portraits which work well together.


    1. Thank you so much Catherine! To be honest, I’m not entirely sure my work is up to formal assessment, but I am learning so much and really enjoying the process. I’ve just had a look at your blog and see you are way advanced on the course! I do hope I make it as far as you!!


      1. To me, learning and enjoyment doing it are key. It’s early days for you but you have well-developed technical skills and an eye for composition. I’m sure you’ll be fine.
