Here I have created my own style of photograph like David Hockney. I started by thinking of the word CYCLE! witch is the word we had to base these photos on, When I came to think what I could take a photo off till i thought about my Day-to-Day cycle and what it involves. When as i when to get my cornflakes for breakfast i thought this was a cycle! Being a poor student i cant afford anything other than cereal for my breakfast. So this is my cycle of every morning, Of having to wake up and pour myself a bowl of cornflakes.I then took a number of photos of the box at different angles and also some closer or further away. After this i placed them all together to give this weird and wacky way of viewing a box of cornflakes. Just like David Hockneys Work.
So with Halloween and bonfire night just round the corner, I took my camera out to take some photos of me and my friends playing around with sparklers, forgetting i changed the shutter speed last time using my camera. so i was left with this image of squiggles which was the trail made by the sparkler as it moved about. I then thought to take a short exposure photo of the sparkler. To then realise it didn’t work due to the short exposure takes a photo so fast it see’s a different image to what the human eye can see. So i just ended up with a few dotted embers flying from the sparkler. Lastly I tried my David Hockney photographs and now i need to place them together
Long Exposure Photographs are when you set the shutter speed on the camera for a longer time than normal. With the camera lens open for longer it means you can catch more in an image then you normally would. This has been used to photograph cars racing past at night leaving a trail from the lights of the cars glowing in the night sky. This also can be called painting with light. This has been used to an advantage to trick the eye in a photograph, how it is done is simply by using a light or torch and shinning it and literally ‘Paint’ with the light just like a painting. Also it it good for time-lapse photos such as the starts moving but this exposure would last for hours. Long exposures are great to do at night as images in the day tend to blur and don’t look as good
Short Exposure Photographs are when you set the cameras shutter speed to a shorter time then normal. This means you can take a photo of something what is too fast to see by the human eye, therefore looks highly impressive. Such images as water flowing, you can see each splash and ripple. Moving vehicles can be seen perfectly clear and background blurred to show how fast the vehicle is moving. Also you can take images of a sill object then damage the object such as shooting the object is quite common. Then you can see each and every little piece fly off from the object. Short Exposure photos pay close to detail and are good at catching in the moment photographs.
David Hockney was well known for some of his photographs such as Trees, Woman and mother. These photographs are made up if lots of different photos of the same thing, but taken at different positions. The the photos are placed together and/or overlapping one another o make up the original photograph again 🙂
Yes! I have finished my photo alphabet, from searching high and low for all these letters we finally found all 26 letters. After I took all the photos I used the skills I learnt in my workshop lesson the other day, I then used masking in order to make all the photos the same size and match up nicely and sit all together in a gird like I have done above. Now my alphabet is complete and looks good.
So I have been looking at some examples of photo alphabets from the website (http://www.alphabetphotography.co.uk). You can see different letters that you typed in, So I started by typing in my name ‘Tina’ and also ‘Christina’ so i could see different letters. This is to help with inspiration when it comes to doing my letters.
For the first task of the year we had to take photos to make an alphabet, not any normal alphabet but one using objects you see on a day to day basis that are naturally occurring. So I wont be taking photos of letter on traffic signs but objects like a clock or car wheel being the letter O. We were able to work in pairs so me and my partner will take single shot portrait photos on my camera and place them together on photoshop. So we have started by looking into a theme of items within my kitchen. As you see above we have taken the letters V and U to start of my photo collection
