250mc – The Images

In order to give myself the maximum choice and to explore the possible compositions from different styles and angles I made a series of images. I have detailed below all the images I rejected and below I have put down the reasons for this.

boah blah blah

When examining the images I felt that those that I had cropped in tighter and were now unable to see the digital device in use lost context. I still felt the image was good but in order to fully reflect the project and offer context then I believed that it was important that the use of a device was obvious, as a result I rejected any image that where it was not clear.

My second cut came when I found that the landscape images were stronger and a few of the portraits versions were just too light so and lost some of their moody feel. I also only choose images where the entity was looking directly at the person. I decided to go with the landscape images and rejected all the portrait ones.

Finally I went through them and examined the images I felt were quite similar. I then took the strongest of each of these and rejected the others, deciding which were better often came down to small things like the angle of someones head, a facial expression or body language. These tiny differences can make an image look and feel quite different.

This left me with a final 5 images.

  1. Hey, I love your work, I’m studying Photography at A Level, focusing on phones and how they have become an obsessive and addicting object. Not fully sure on what your focus is but I’ve researched Eric Pickersgill who re-enacts people on their phones, by physically removing the devices so they are looking at the palm of there hands. Your work in a way I see links into this due to the fact the people in your images aren’t paying enough attention to the physical world. The way the mask model is tilting it’s head implies this.

    1. Thanks Jess.

      I am not familiar with Eric Pickersgill work but it’s always flattering to be compared to other artists and I’ll certainly look him up. Good luck with your A-levels and if you decide to take photography at university I can certainly recommend the course at Coventry. They were already voted the number 1 photography course by the Guardian and have now been voted number 1 by unistats too.
