“We want you to bring to this session an image or a body of work that has affected the way that you think about your photographic practice or current project work in a meaningful way.

First design layout Second design layout Third design layout Final design layout Above are PDF links to some previous design layouts that I tried out before settling on the final one. Across the four documents, the main thing that I experimented with was the front cover.

I experimented with trying different layouts for the text on the front cover. I wanted to use the image that features on the centre pages in the zine, so I cropped a section for a portrait orientation. However, I then decided that this was the wrong thing to do, as the main image contained within the zine is landscape, and it did not make sense … Continue reading ‘Void & Density’ – Front Cover Experiments.
In this project tutorial, I had produced more work in which to show Nick. We discussed how the project was going, and I explained that I had been trying to photograph more people in the transitional spaces in which I had encountered. One of the first things he noticed was the fact that all of my subjects were men, and in order to describe more … Continue reading Tutorial Write Up – Nick Bright // 14.11.16
After coming across the series Stranger Passing by Joel Sternfeld, I really liked the idea of having a photograph from the body of work presented on the front cover, accompanied by a title. I therefore used this front cover as inspiration for the cover of my zine, and consequently chose to use a photograph for the front cover that I believed epitomised the ideas that I was … Continue reading Zine – Layout and Cover Ideas.
Today Clare Hewitt gave a talk about her work and process, and how to make ends meet within the photographic industry. It was very useful to hear first hand how she has juggled many jobs since finishing her degree in photography, and has gained many transferable skills in doing so. Her main source of income is from commissioned work, through big publications such as Oh Comely and The Independent … Continue reading Clare Hewitt Project Tutorial.
A few notes from an edit session looking at how best to present my work. Also a few evaluative notes on my process and decision making in terms of the final outcome, and how I arrived there. Today we had a group edit session in which we displayed all of our work and attempted to narrow it done into a cohesive project. Most people, including … Continue reading Group Edit Session // Zine Production.
After having a few days to look over the brief and come up with a few ideas, I spoke with Jim about the possible outcomes for this project. My initial ideas were to work with moving image, and to produce a photographers film. However, my choice of subject matter and therefore basis of a project was still very much in the infancy stage. The idea … Continue reading Tutorial Write Up // Jim Campbell – 25.09.16
After having massive problems with the camera’s film back, (see previous shoot!) I decided that I had to go back to the same locations and reshoot. I managed to successfully reshoot all of the images that were originally ruined, plus a couple of others that made it in to the final edit. Although slightly frustrating at the time, it was definitely a worthwhile process to … Continue reading Shoot #8 – Contact Sheets.
