In the beginning I started by thinking of a theme for myproject, by thinking of a theme first you will therefore get ideas for eachpart of your project. Otherwise, you will get confused maybe halfway throughthe photographs and spend time thinking of what to do next this wastes time andis very inefficient. After the theme, Ithought of the same colour idea, this would be very useful and easy as I hadalready got objects that matched.
As the theme of passions and obsessions was the overallfocus. Visiting a place called Lasscos would be extremely helpful. I struggledat first to gain valuable ideas from this place. Lasscos sell old vintage itemssuch as furniture etc for your garden or house. As it has many of the sameobjects and most of the rooms are very compact with objects, therefore,passions and obsessions would be displayed well throughout Lasscos. Although itwasn’t my theme of same colour, using this place was increasingly helpfulbecause it would further improve my idea. I think that my pictures were of agood standard but I thought that using different angles would be more creative,if I had retaken this part I think that my project would be better.
I then went on to studio photographs; this is where I wentinto the white studio and using my idea of same colour that relates to passionsand obsessions I took pictures of object with the same colour and have thebackground as the same colour too. I think that this worked well because I tookmany close ups and had different angels and contrast. I think that to improvethis part I would have to take more pictures of different objects. Havingcoloured pencils was a good initial idea but I think that I needed to improvemy work but having a range of same coloured objects, maybe more interestingones.
Before the exam I used different experiments to decide whatto do in the exam. I think that these pictures were ok but I struggled tocomplete this in time for the exam, so I had only a few to decide what to do inthe exam, I think that this was stillhelpful but I wished that I had done better work to prepare myself for thisexam. In the exam I used different ideas with the pictures and the quality ofthese were good. I think that I completed the task set to me quite good andfound this easy to complete.
With the exam prep I found that I didn’t use my timecorrectly to get the best out of my work, although I thought my work was of agood standard, it just lacked in quantity. With more time I think that I wouldhave improved my work to a better quality.
