Influences

Unit 1 - Emphasising colour

My first Film- Wires in Wallop
These photographs stood out to me as they have a good depth to the pictures, the foreground and background feel stretched apart, this is what defines them from the others in film 1.

This group of photographs
guided
me towards my final images.
It
is the grass roots of my project
, showing where my work has come from and what other photographers have influenced me.
By Paula Fisher

This photograph influenced me to use the close foreground and the far background in the same frame.
I waited until it was sunset to take this image to create the same effect as above. The barbed wire was intended to be full black silhouette- it came out blurred which effectively focused our eyes on the background.
Highlighting Selective Colours to show emphasis
Artist Studies
Wolfgang Tillman's
Tillman’s work is
unique
and have a
sense of depth
to these pictures.
I like it as the shadows make the image feel more
cold and mysterious.
The different weird objects in this picture all add to the image.
The red coil attracts to me the most as it’s the
only bright color
in the image.
I like this photographs because you can tell what time of year is I think it’s was taken
autumn 2008 on a morning
the conker and the dull light tell me this
This is my favorite Tillman's picture as you can get so much information and detail about it
This photograph makes the postbox look larger than it is in real life due to the angle this film was taken, putting this image in a black and white makes the image feel
old, abandoned and cold.

This image is the final product of this image
I wanted to
emphasis
the red of the postbox
with the
cold, old
feel on the telegraph in black and white poles in the background
His work many consists of
portraits, still life’s, sky photographs
, aerial shots and landscapes.
He is the first non-English person to be
awarded the Tate annual Turner Prize
German born.
He was brought up in a political time when the German civil division of west and east Germany. His
observational style
in his art makes it his own, his galleries are very in line and all
parallel
, this shows us that he is quite precise about what he photograph’s, I think this comes from being the man he is including his sexuality.
I can tell that he is
spontaneous
about his photography as his photos are quite obscure and unique.
About Him
This photo has influenced me as I liked the way the
wires cross
each other into the distance It makes the picture
look longer
that it actually is as the focal point is in the centre of the picture.
I took this at mid-day to get the same clear blue sky and a
central focal point.
Making most of the film black and white to
emphasis the bright colour
in the leaves, also it makes the clouds feel more alive.
This film is similar to the first film as I still wanted to look the
lines
, but this time I'm focusing more on the
wires
in the village. I wanted to experiment with a
different background
, I chose a
sunset sky
as I thought it would make my images
more vivid
and
colourful.
I wanted to experiment getting the wires and poles into a
silhouette
figure. This effect makes my photographs sharp against the smooth sunset background. This shows a
contrast between the colours
even though no images from this film made the final images. This film has still helped me along my
journey.
Taken at 7:30pm
Taken at 11am
Joel Meyerowitz
I was drawn to the color orange in the
center
of picture first, I think this is because there are a number of objects. The effect this has on the photograph is that it
emphasizes the color orange.

If you try to look out side the picture I would think there are more people having
fun
along the beach, people surfing, sunbathing and more lifeguards. Behind the image I imagine that there's a cliff or a row of beach huts and an access road. This is
photographed from behind the main subject matter
in the picture from behind the life-guard. It feels like the photograph is set in to 3 sections; sand and people, the sea and the clear sky.

When I look at this photo I feel
refreshed
imaging myself in the sea on a hot day in the summer. the people in the picture look active and are enjoying there leisure time away from the stress of life. I think this photo was taken because of the
vivid color
on this day. I like the way that it is a
natural photograph
and is
not arranged
as no one knows that the picture is being taken this makes it feel real.

This image is a
LANDSCAPE
photograph with some still life, but most of the people are active. If this photo was one of many I would say that the
CONNECTION
is bright colors. If I took this picture I would
stand further away
to get more of the surrounding to give it a panorama effect this would give us
more information
about it

I think the photograph is about showing colour, as we think of
associate lifeguards as being orange
from the programme '
Baywatch
' in the 1990's. The light in this photo is clear and the natural light of the sun, its on a
summers day
as there are only
short shadows
this shows its
around midday.



The study of Meyerowitz
This is the original I thought it looked to sharp so i changed the gamma correction to make it feel more warm, to make it more apealing
I wanted to
emphasizes the colours
red and yellow to make them feel more
vibrant
to the viewer
Final frame
Experiments
My fourth Film - The Village park
My third film- A cluster of garages

This is the original I thought it looked to sharp so i changed the gamma correction to make it feel more warm
I wanted to emphasizes the colors red and yellow to make them feel more vibrant
Final product
This image makes the postbox larger than it is in real life due to the angle this film was taken, putting this image in a black and white makes the image feel old, abandoned and cold.
This image is the final product of this image I wanted to emphasis the red of the postbox with the cold, old feel on the telegraph in black and white poles in the background.

by Steven Shore
By William Eggleston
By Berenice Abbott
This photograph by Eggleston
influenced
me to take this picture in my village park.
I liked the emphasis of the child's
red jumper
, also this picture
feels warm.

I wanted to use these features when I took my Photograph


This Photograph by Michael Crossley was taken outside London's
iconic
St Paul's Cathedral in the winter.
The bus has been emphasized as its been left in its normal colour of red. I think Crossley's done this as the London red bus is a
british iconic
symbol and he wanted this to stand out.
I wanted to use this same effect in my village. I chose a postbox which has the same iconic feel to it.
By Michael Crossley
This photograph of the washing lines by Berenice Abbott was
taken in 1936 in New York
and influenced me to try and capture the wires crossing each other.
This gave me the idea to experiment with the angles of the picture.
My photograph is a
silhouette
image in our village, this is a simple
contrast
compared to the large city of New York.
The Park Film
The Garage Film
Wires in Wallop films
Influences
Experimenting with 'Angles' to alter the focal point
Introduction to angles
Theses experiments are about what angle I have taken the Photographs at.
I have looked at looking up to increase the length of the object.
I felt this could make the photographs more interesting and could add value to the photograph
The Park Film
Wires in Wallop films
The Garage Film
Using Black and white to show 'Emotion'
These images all have the same effect of
black and white
, some fully and some with the
bright colours left in to emphasize the two colours.
This group of photographs shows the type of black and white I would like to use in my final images. I have used the same effect as Michael Crossley where he keeps one part of the image the original colour and the other half colourless.
My Image
Artist studys
This picture by Joel Meyerowitz has
focused
on the colour orange all in the centre of the photograph.
This photograph feels warm from the heat of summer, this emphasizes the
rich colour
in this photograph, I wanted to bring this effect from Meyerowitz's work to mine.
In my final images by emphasizes the main colour bright colour
I have tried to reinvent the rich warm feeling from Meyerowitz's work.
My project is about
emphasising colour
in photos with the use of different angles, I will take all my photographs in and around the village of Nether Wallop in Hampshire to give them a
natural connection
.
My experimentation will been focused around
colour
and how it can be developed.
I will look at the work of other artists including the photographer
Joel Meyerowitz and Tierney Gearon
.
Their use of
vibrant colour
will help and influence my Unit 1 project.

Joel Meyerowitz
This film was taken in my village park. I wanted to look at the
bright fun colours
that you find in a play park. I explored more
angles.
When looking back at the at the images in a contact sheet it reminds me of looking through
the eyes of a child
at the park. There is also a
strong sense of colour
in this film even before experimenting.

I feel like this film has moved my project on the most, as naturally I have experimented with angles
from the perspective of a person
, in this case a
child.
My films
Experimenting with light and time is having the same content in the picture with a different amount of saturation and contrast.
Most of this experimenting took place in the wires in the night sky film.
I feel that my four final films group together naturally well as they are all taken in the village where I live.
In these films I have experimented with
mainly black and white, colour and varying angles.
This film was taken in the new end of the village. Most villagers think these
garages are ugly and dull
and don't fit in to the traditional aspect in our village compared to the 1600AC thatch cottages. I wanted to make them look at the garages in a different light. I have tried to make the garages
more interesting
by
exploring different angles, lines and shadows
; turning them from ugly and dull to interesting and
fun
.

I have experimented with the
angles, colour, light, time and black and white
. I think that the black and white effect shows the garages as
a strong bold statement.
Key Images
These are my Key Images from film 3, I feel like these pictures fit together the most about of the whole film. I would like to use some of the images from this film in my final Images.
Favorite
Best
Key Images
These are my Key Images from film 4, I feel like these pictures feel right together. I would like to use some of the images from this film in my final Images by experimenting with emphasizing the main colour on the photograph .
Introduction to My films
This set of
photographs sit comfortably together
showing the similarity of thought processes in each photograph.
The camera
angles draw the viewer in
switching their focus from the foreground to the black and white background.
Vibrant colour
sits authoritatively against black/white.
I then went on to develop my photographs with the influence of Tierney Gearon’s exposures work
These images have been created by double exposure inside the camera. She takes one picture on the roll of film, then shoots something else on top of it. This is an old-fashioned technique, but very effect, I her technique to create some of my final photographs, giving the viewer the feeling of looking through the photograph.
I wanted to use
photos from all my films
to show that each step of my
journey
was useful,
so I experimented with photos from the garage film to create my final photographs
Overall in this project I felt my use of
colour
was successful, but my main sticking point was
choosing what to photograph
. My research at the start of my project into Meyerowitz and Crossley helped me refocus I realized I needed to
keep my mind open for new ideas
, to let them
develop naturally.
As this was my first photography project I was learning as I went along, especially how even changing the
angle
of the camera can influence how the viewer reads the picture.

If I were to continue with this project I would like ether experiment with adding more films which are quite different to my current colourful films, using sad and depressing images like; graffiti, the homeless or even derelict and abandoned buildings to create a contrast between the the to feelings of happy and sad this would give a more
surreal effect in my photographs.

Key Images
Key Images
This film was taken in and around the village. I noticed that the telegraph
poles and wires looked interesting
so I went and experimented with taking pictures from different angles. For example looking up at the wires made the
telegraph pole feel distorted and prolonged.
I wanted to show this in this film. I also wanted to convey the way the different directions of wires draws the viewer's eye out of the image. This
makes the viewer imagine what is beyond the image.
When I looked back at this film I noticed the crossing wires created a
tangled interest.
What's next:
In my next film I'm going to experiment with a different background colour, I will have to ask myself what time I need to take the photographs.
What's next:
In my next film I'm going to experiment with a different object or place, I will ask myself where to go next, I still want to keep the same theme of lines and emphasizing colour to keep the connection between the two films. I want to chose a location where its dull and there's not much colour, so I can emphasis the boring colours to make them more intriguing.
These selection of images stood out to me as they all still have a good depth to the picture, the shy background draws you from the make focal point in each of these images.
What's next:
In my next film I'm going to experiment with a different place to show that you can emphasis colour in any location, I'm going to choose a fun place in village to make my photographs have more happy colours like yellow. I still want to keep the same theme of lines and emphasizing the main colour to keep the connection between flowing between films
What's next:
In my next stage in my project is to make my final images to conclude my project, these images will represent my whole project in selection of images that are like a set, but still have a meaning in each photograph which are similar to one another.
Introduction to Black and white
Introduction to Unit 1
Conclusion to Unit 1
Introduction to Colour
Experimenting with colour is what my unit 1 project is about, how
colour can be changes to transforming my images into a piece of photographic art.

I feel that you can change
the mood
of the image just by changing the saturation or contrast this influcences the way people view them.
In this photograph I have
emphasized the colour
of the telephone box to make it stand out.
The viewer
will automatically look at the telephone when they see it, this is done my making the background a darker black and white.
I have also
brightened the light
coming from the box, this gives it the effect of it being darker.
I have the same use of the wires and lines in the background which adds good subject matter to the photograph

Intoduction
About Him
Joel Meyerowitz is an award-winning photographer whose work has appeared in hundreds of exhibitions. He began photographing in 1962. He conciders himself as a street photographer. He was famous for taking pictures of the 9/11 aftermath at the world trade centre, within a few days of the attack. In his work with the use of different colour's he makes his photographs have a 'mood' which fits the situation of the photograph, like in his 9/11 photos there is a sense of tragedy and mourning

Michael Crossley
These Photographs by Crossley was taken outside London's
iconic
St Paul's Cathedral.
The bus has been
emphasised
as its been left in its normal traditional red where the background is Black and White.
I think Crossley did this to show the iconic british bus to stand out behind the London landmark.
I wanted to use this
same effect
in my village. I chose a postbox, telephone and the flag which has the same iconic feel to it.
About Him and his work
Michael Crossley's work is
all based in London
varying from the famous landmarks to derailed tube trains.
I think images are similar to mine as the are all taken in the same place, also I'm using the same effect of making
part colour and part black and white.
I feel that his use of colour in his work is trying to
emphasize the main colour in the photograph.
This picture was taken of the olympic stadium at the london 2012 olympic games, I feel that Crossley wanted to
capture the vibe
of the home games, by taking this photograph
Introduction

Tierney Gearon
The work of Gearon explosures work has influenced me in my work as it
makes the viewer look further into the photo
and it also gives the photograph two meanings, she uses two completely different photographs to make her photographs
more surreal
which makes the viewer think about it.
She took photographs of her childernI think these photographs are just a the
natural view of a mother
spontaneously looking and ejoying the company of her children. Which she then when to spent time photographing a project called ‘the mother project’.
As I was Filming in a play park
I want to use her fun style
work to create my own double exposures photography in my final photographs
Gearon’s photographs have been created by double exposure inside the camera. This means that she takes one picture, then she keeps the roll of film, and then I shoot something else on top of it.
This
old-fashioned technique
is very effect,
I wanted to use her technique
to create some of my final photographs
My second Film- Wires in Wallop at night
Material for my final Photographs
Using: Wires and Lines and Double Exposure
My Final Photographs
This Group of Photographs were all taken in the traditional English village of Nether Wallop where I live, using photos from the same village
automatically connects
them together to create a set which gives each photograph the same feeling.
The emphasis of colour
in the photograph directs the viewer to that area first. The colour's have
integral meanings
; the red British icons like the post box is a symbol of our heritage and the vibrant yellow in the children's play park with its association with fun, play and happiness.

Using all my films in my final photographs this

links and connects my whole project together, this is done by
emphasising parts of each photograph
. The variety of different
angles
is to keep every photograph unique. I wanted to use the
garage film as a canvas
, by applying other parts of photograph around and in the garages. I have used the garage doors by putting other photographs inside them, including the
panorama
split with split the garages into different parts of an image this was to create a sense of
depth and width
to each photograph.

I still want to use
wires and lines
in my final photographs, I thought that I should use my very first images of this project would show how far it has
developed
. I wanted to make the background behind the garages more interesting to the viewer to look at, so I used the
silhouette photographs
from my wires in wallop night sky film. The images inside of my images have been made to have the same characteristics as one another e.g. putting all the angle photographs together, all the British icons together or black and white images. This groups each photograph into a segment of my project.
