Instruction #1, chosen photos.
The reason i’ve chosen this image is because it captures how dull and lifeless Hillmorton is, this is because of the cold temperature and the old woman on the electric scooter, also i like the way the balloons are there as if they’ve tried to make it a happier place with them.
This image i took is of children biking home from school with there mother, i like this image because you get a sense of love from it, i like this because it proves that the old stereotype does no longer (well shouldn’t) exist, because as you can see women don’t have it easy, a lot of them look after there children and also have a full time job as well. The thing i like about it in particular is the childs expression on the bike, he looks as if he’s almost home and just cannot wait to get back.
This next image you have too look into quite a bit and think back to the past when there was a time when there were slaves, well if you have a look at this picture you can clearly see that this doesn’t exist in this day and age, so from this photo i get a sense that anything is possible that no matter how bad it is things can be resolved, this isn’t a great photo but i really like the contrast through the image and also the childs expression as he’s obviously caught me taking the photo, also the way he’s standing looks as if he is bored and is wanting to go home, considering this was from the end of the shoot means that he’s been out of school for about half an hour. I think i could of improved this image if i was better at shooting from the hip and if the image was sharper.
So from this project i’ve learn’t that i need to work on my shooting from the hip and possibly shoot more photos.
