Proposal pro forma

  1. 1. Proposal Subjects: For my proposal I will be focusing on a range of different subjects not only to have some variety, but also to see how the experimental technique works with them to produce the final image, and whether or not they result in an interesting image for theme of fear. One of my main subjects will be nature, because of its abundance, and ease of capturing in a photograph. Another reason for nature is because of its traditional representation of concealment and camouflage in horror- orientated media, where leaves and foliage can easily hide people or things. This is an idea that I would like to explore within my series of photographs. Another potential subject I may include is buildings or structures, decrepit or abandoned ones in particular. The reasoning behind this is because older and ruined structures have a lot more stories to tell behind them as opposed to a well-maintained modern building still being used, whereas an old, dusty mansion would be a treasure trove of spooky potential. A key to invoking fear is making the viewers unnerved by provoking thought, asking them ‘Why.’ One such way of doing this is using an old building, and therefore making the viewer ask, ‘Why was this building abandoned?’ or, ‘What is inside this building now?’ Locations: The locations I will use during my project will vary quite heavily depending on the chosen subjects at the time. If I will be photographing nature such as trees and foliage, I will likely just stick around my house and the fields around it as there is an abundance of greenery and it can easily be adapted for my chosen theme. However, if I were to use buildings for my subjects it would be a little harder as I would have to seek out some older, and possibly decrepit buildings to photograph. While I do know of several abandoned houses they are built up areas and as such the presently liveable condition of surrounding houses may detract from the feeling of the image. Techniques: For this project I will be using out of focus as my main experimental technique. This is because I wanted to use what is usually an exposure nuisance in a professional sense, in order to create real depth in an image and obscure certain elements to focus on others. Tying in to my theme of fear, photos being out of focus causes the capturing elements of the image to be shifted to something else that is visibly, letting the photographer direct the gaze of the viewer and make them focus on something he wants them to focus on. Reasoning: The reason that I want to use the out of focus technique is because I believe that it has a lot of potential in a fear-inspired atmosphere and application. Many ominous photographs don’t tend to
