One idea that I could use is to produce images that are
discovering something that people see every day, like a light bulb
or a plug, and producing images that make I look interesting. For
example I could take a picture of a light bulb, and produce
lightning strikes to come out of it. I could do this with light
writing. I could make a set of three images, and produce a second
one that has something smashing into it, and I would use high
speed photography to capture this.
Another idea that I could use could be to
produce images that capture light. I could
produce images that would look like they are
discovering a new place, or I could produce
images that discover a mood, like happiness or
sadness. For example to capture a mood I could
create an image taken of all the things that
people associate with happiness, like the
sun, sleep, and even small things like a snooze
button and wedding rings. I could create effects
on top of these images, using techniques like
scanography and light writing. Using a high
shutter speed would also be a good technique to
use, mainly because then it could capture things
like the wedding rings failing, or a light
For my final photographs I could
produce an image with a mirror. I
could produce an image that has been
taken of a few different objects in
front of a mirror, then edit them
together so that it looked surreal.
When I am producing my images I
would make sure that the images are
original, that they capture something
that is different and unique. I could
produce images that have been made
from different types of cameras, like a
scanner, to capture this type of image.
One idea that I could use would be paint. I could take images
that look like normal photographs, like landscape photographs,
then use paint or pencils to change the look. Since the theme is
discovery I would need to make sure that the final images look
original, and they look surreal and new. I could take a
photograph of a landscape that has been seen regularly, and edit
another image on top so that I looks new, so people won’t
recognise it. For this I could use a regular house, in regular
surroundings, then edit it so it looks like its in a forest, or next to
a city skyscraper.
When I was creating my mood boards, I decided that I should create a different slide for the different
techniques that I know about, then come up with different ideas through that. In the first one the theme is high
speed photography, in the second is light writing photography, the third is reflections, the forth is out of focus
photography, the fifth is Hockney Joiners photography, the sixth is movement, the seventh is scanography, the
eighth is Harris shutter photography, and the last is 3D photography. I tried to find images of multimedia
photography but I couldn’t. With the images on these mood boards I can see that there is a whole range of
different techniques that I could use. Since looking at all the different images I came up with the idea of using
images to bring about the feeling of happiness. I could use bold colours and some of the techniques to do this.
One idea that I could do is to use one or more of the different techniques, then produce three images that have
been taken together. I could produce a set of canvases, so they work together and they produce a bigger picture.
Another idea that I could use is to create a set of images using high speed photography.
