Predicted final outcomeMy plan is to take at leastaround about fifty images toensure that I will be able tochoose ten images that I willwant to and be able to use as myfinal images.

Reasons for selection of themeI have chosen to take imagesin Salford Quays because Iwant urban images and I thinkit is great for that, as there arelots of tall buildings andstreetlights, there will also be Example of the tall building that I will bequite a lot of people there capturing when taking my pictures in Salford quays.which will help with mytheme and the skylines andthe traffic. I am following thestyles mainly of AndrewBrooks as he mainly bases hisphotographs in Manchesterand is an urban photographer. Andrew Brooks Photo of Salford Quays.
Inspirations:Andrew Brooks Photographs of Salford QuaysI really like Andrew Brooks Photography and I would like to take pictures verysimilar to this as he is one of my main inspirations.
Inspirations:David Hockney’s PhotographyDavid Hockney is know for editing all the pictures he takes, to give them the weirdcollage effect and I really like this and I am planning to do this with some of thepictures I take myself.
Inspirations: Clifton Carr PhotographyClifton Carr takes more rural types of images, however I really like his work,especially the reflection photo that has been took in the water with the leaves, this isone that I will definitely be trying to replicate.
Techniques that will be used:I plan to use the rule of thirds sothat I am able to capture the tallbuildings that surround Salfordquays but I will also get the sky aswell as I will have the buildings atthe far end of the photograph.I will be using a camera flash formost of the photographs that I take,this is so that I can bring out thecolour of certain objects on thethings that I am taking as I wantvery bright distinctive colouredobjects that will stand out againstdarkish urban background. This is the kind of thing I want with the dark background with bright flowers as the objects.
Date, time and location:We will be going on November19th and we will be there from9.30 till 12.30.The location is Salford quays.
