Post on 04-Jul-2015
1. Unit 57: Photography andPhotographic PracticeResearch of other photographerswork (P1, M1, D1)Photographer: Joe Cornish12 2. 34 3. 56 4. Theme or focus of imagesIn these images, I found that the photographer takes architectural images that mayalso be portrayed in the same way as a landscape. He uses a lot of nature in hisimages and makes use of the whole frame. In nearly all of his images he used theSkye for the top of his image. I think this works really well because it works well with thebuildings at the bottom. It sort of cuts the image in 2.In image 5, the photographer has taken the image at sunset, this gives the photo likea warm feeling to it, it also makes the sky In the top of his image stand out. He hasalso made sure there was the same amount of water at the bottom of the image. Thismakes both the top and bottom of the image similar colours causing your focus r=tobe on the architecture.Number 1 is an unusual choice for an architectural photo. I chose this becausearchitecture is about designing amazing buildings and statues. And the image of thisstatue was brilliant. The way he uses the ground and the sky, and the contrastingcoloured statue in the middle works really well. He took this image from below thestatue, giving us the magnitude of its size.Image 3 is a picture of a ruined statue stump and an old arch in the background, theway he focuses on the stump and has something significant in the backgroundmakes the image great, also the way again he uses trees and the sky and the groundto make the buildings stand out more is great.CompositionThe compositions of his images are nearly all the same, this is because he uses the Skyand the ground and other environmental objects to make sure the main focus is onthe buildings. This works really well because the buildings normal contrast with theenvironment around them, making the image more interesting.He also changes his possession when taking an image, he does this really wellbecause on the images I have selected image 1 and image 3 are from completelydifferent angles but they both were really well.Techniques usedThe shutter speed for most of these images would have to have been quite high, thisis because the photographer mainly takes images in highly light areas. The rule ofthird in these images are done really well and he must have took a lot of time to do.This is because the placing of the building and the environment is near perfect.The depth of field for this image would have been very low, this is because most ofthe image is clear and focused, and not leaving any blurry areas. And the ISO forthese images would have to have been quite high too.The changes in the F-Stop, shutter speed and ISO would have changed for image 5.This is because out of the 6 I chosen, this is the only one that is in darkness.Strengths & WeaknessesIn was really hard choosing weaknesses and strengths for these images because Ireally like them:Strengths: The way he uses the environment in the image to contrast against the buildingsworks really well 5. The timing on his Images are brilliant, he takes the photo according to what he wantsthe mood in the image to feel like, E.G sun set, mid-day or morning.Weaknesses:: The placing of the building could be a lot better. The angles he takes the images of could have been a little bit better. 6.
