    • 1. This photography project
      is about having fun
      with ideas
      and photography
    • 2. There are lots of things you can do….
      Making pictures is more fun
      when you work with ideas
      Here are a few ideas and some work by other people that might inspire you.
    • 3. You could take pictures of yourself
      And there are lots of different ways to do that
    • 4. Self-portraits
      by Lee Friedlander
    • 5. There are all sorts of places to look for reflections.
    • 6. If you like the look of any of the pictures by the various artists why not look them up on the internet
      and find out some more about them.
      Doing this can also help you with your own ideas
    • 7. These are Self-portraits
      by Lee Friedlander
      His reflections in shop windows.
      Have you got some favorite shops?
      Or shops you visit a lot?
      Might you like to put yourself in a set of shop windows just by photographing your reflection?
    • 8. You can try just taking pictures of yourself
      Perhaps look for different backgrounds, I just turned around on my chair and showed bits of the room I was working in.
      You could choose any kind of different backgrounds, out and about for instance, to make a narrative about any aspect of your self.
      The light could have been nicer though – like good daylight!
    • 9. Or get someone to
      take pictures of you
      Which you may want to put together

      You could add some writing if you want to
      Either before you take the photos 
      Or after 

    • 28. Connie had some fun thinking of sayings to go with her pictures
    • 29. You may need to Plan out the pictures you need For instance if you wanted to make an image up of pictures of your own eyes, nose and mouth, you would need to have this idea in mind when you took the first pictures, of your eyes etc . When you take pictures like this you should try lots of different things, changing the angle of the camera, different light, different backgrounds etc, this will give you lots of images to play with; also see the tips belowtake pictures close up ( use the tulip setting on the camera)use the camera both ways round, portrait and landscapeNotice the light, and perhaps change it by moving your objects elsewhere, like next to a window
    • 30. This one was made by taking photographs and then tearing them up and arranging them, then re photographing it. They are just put on the floor with some natural light! The words were added later.
    • 31. David Hockney
      If you wanted to make something like these; look closely at these examples and try to work out how David Hockney took the pictures, what are the single images you would need to take? Where has he stood with the camera and which different angles did he take the shots from?
    • 32. David Hockney – his mother
    • 33. Mari Mahr works with ideas related to her history and her dreams.
      If you like her work you could find out more about her on the internet.

      or time passing.
      This is Duane Michaels
      he is famous for doing images in
      series, they are often very witty,
      like this one.
    • 36. © from Duane Michals
    • 37. Suzy Lake made this series of pictures, she is painting her face white but all together the pictures make a pattern too.
    • 38. This series of images was very quick and simple to make, could you use this idea and change it to make it your own?
    • 39. These are some interesting pictures that would not be too hard to make; just remember to find some nice light ( these are just with light from the window) and also notice, and think about, what is visible in the background.
      Duane Michals, Alices Mirror, 1974
    • 40. You could make patterns out of things around you
      Remember when you photograph it to try taking pictures from different angels; bend your knees, stand on your toes, go in close, step out to take pictures from further away, walk around to get another completely different view 
    • 41. Andy Goldsworthy is famous for making all sorts of work like this

      He has also made work by taking pictures on a long walk. You could tell a story about a walk by taking pictures to show that walk. Richard Long also makes pictures with things like mud, see the next slide

    • 44. Richard Long also makes pictures with things like mud! But often the only thing that remains is the photograph of the picture.
    • 45. These are by Jeff Pigott, they were all made on the beach. You can see that the bottom two must have taken longer to achieve than the one that is photographing the different surfaces.
      What might you want to do? Would you like to make something in a landscape like some of the artists we have just looked?
    • 46. Here are a few things you could use for Ideas
