This assignment was overwhelming but quite an experience at the same time. We were given about 2 weeks to shoot images based on 5 themes, with one theme being revealed every three days. It was quite a different experience to try and capture images that related or reflected the theme I was given. It helped me stay focussed and see things from a different perspective. For instance, the theme “Conflict” could be a physical conflict, a psychological one, or even just different things that did not belong together.
This image is of one of my friends taking a photo of her reflection. I cropped out most of the image leaving only her and her reflection, then I flipped it around creating an illusion of her reflection taking a picture of her.
The images I took throughout this assignment were quite different, such as this image of leaves on a tree. It was unique from the other images because of its colour and focus on one particular set of leaves out of the hundreds that were on the tree. I feel that my photography has began to focus on the principles of design more and also have had more of a focus on the subject of the image. I have also started to edit and experiment with filters on my images to create unique and aesthetically pleasing images.
