Assignment title Open Brief 2: Exploring a Photographic Theme
Abstract:

This brief is your second and last independent photographic exploration around a theme of your choice. You have three themes to choose between and are expected to produce an outcome of 10, technically proficient photographs. Over the duration of the project, you should use the skills you learn in class to assist you with your photography. It is expected that you will use your time fully to reflect upon and evaluate your practice as you progress through the brief.

Themes:

For this brief, you must choose between the following themes:

 

–    Advertising Photography

•    Fashion

•    Homeware

•    Jewellery

•    Gadgets

–    Landscapes Photography

•    Nature

•    Urban

•    Water

•    Forrest

•    Beaches

–    Portraiture Photography

•    Beauty

•    Head shots

•    Family

•    Wedding

•    Representation

Overview:

Once you have chosen your theme, you should look at existing work that surrounds that area of photography. It is expected that you will take inspiration, but not copy, the work that you find. You should outline plans for each shoot that you undertake, supported by why you made your choices. It is also expected that you will evidence your progress either on your WordPress/ Blog/ Website or another form of presentation that has been agreed with your tutor.

Task 1 – Project Proposal:

The pro-forma document for your project proposal is available on MyCourse. The purpose of the proposal is to assist you with organising your ideas and planning out your response to the brief.

Task 2 – Photographic Shoots:

The basic structure for your photographic shoots should be as follows:

–    Shoot plan: Where are you going? What will you take? What do you hope to achieve?

–    Contact sheet: A full contact sheet of images from the shoot.

–    Evaluation of shoot: A short evaluation of the shoot. How well did it go? What didn’t work? What will you improve on next time?

–    2-3 of your best images: Upload larger versions of your best images from the shoot.

Repeat this as necessary, a minimum of 3* shoots is expected.

*2 shoots as agreed with tutors

Task 3 – Selection of Final Images:

The final section of this project is to select ten of your best photographs from your shoots. You should explain why you have chosen each image.

Task 4 – Evaluation:

A short evaluation of the whole project should be placed at the end. This will evaluate your skills as a photographer and the quality of your final images.
