What Went WellA few of my pictures came out really well, but others didn’t. Focusing on thepositives, I did enjoy this task as I like working with the cameras, and walkinground the quays to see what I could capture was fun. I spent a lot of timewandering around as I felt sometimes the sun was over exposing my shots, butwhen I did capture an image it came out great like the one below.The image on the left has got to beone of my favourite out of them all. Ilike the way the sky looks with cloudsscattered, and I framed it reallywell, which was unintentional at thetime. You can see a lot going on justfrom the image, the sky, the wateritself, boats, Media City in thebackground and the brick walls. Allthese little aspects bring something tothe photo and almost looks 3D.
What Would I ChangeIf I were to do this again I would definitelychange the day I would go. I went to SalfordQuays on three separate occasions, and allthe times it was extremely cold and windy.I felt like this limited me as to how much timeI would spend outside to take photos of theQuays, and this is the reason why I endedup with so little photographs. I would changewhere I positioned myself, I stayed in anarea around the Quays but it would havebeen better if I walked all the wayround, preferably near the Lowry and thatpart of the water. This would have gave me acompletely different perspective on theshoot.
