PHOTOGRAPHY
Film 1: Circular objects photographed in the Allotment. Focus on circles and pattern
Best
Image Analysis to show Key Elements;
circular shapes and repetition
PROBLEMS:
Throughout this film, I have found it difficult to photograph
circles
in varying ways, that
differ
from
previous
photographs.

Film 2: Circular Wood taken at Sparsholt Woodland Centre. Focus on pattern
PROBLEMS
:
If I were to take this film again, I would take more photographs which include further
exploring
the
idea
of
narrowing

perspective
.

Film 3: Lines and Blocks of Wood taken at College. Focus on repetition, and shape
INTENTIONS:
For my third film I took pictures of
wood
around
college
. In this film I wanted to
explore

pattern
,
repetition
, and
perspective
.
INTENTIONS
:
In my
fourth film
I took photographs of
bricks
to
demonstrate
the
repetition
within the
patterns
. I think that the recurring theme of
repetition, pattern and narrowing perspective stands out
in this film.
6th Film - Car Reflection - Taken on car windows - Focus on Reflection
INTENTIONS:
For my sixth film I took pictures of the
reflections
I found on car
windows
. The
idea
of reflection follows on from my
previous

film
when I noticed the
reflection
on the surface of the car.
8th Film - Building Reflection - Taken in London - Focus on Repeated Reflections
INTENTIONS:
In my eighth film, I took photographs of the
reflections
of
buildings
on
glass
frames. The idea of
reflection
follows my
previous
film, where I took photographs of
buildings
on
car windows
, noticing the
repetition
the buildings created.
Evaluating an Image by Tina Modotti - pattern, structure, lines, perspective
INTENTIONS:
When I took this picture, the intention was to create a sense of
never ending repetition
,
which would confuse the viewer. I chose to only photograph the
pattern
, I found on the roof of the building without including any other parts of the building, to make the photo more

simplistic

and
eye catching.

POSSIBLE IMPROVEMENTS:
If I were to retake this photo I would take the photo in the
morning
rather than in the evening, when light levels are at there best, to show more

contrast

between the glass and the sky. I would also
lower the camera angle
and
zoom out
, to reveal more of the roof.
Artist Analysis: Wolfgang Tillmans: shape and colour (continued)
INTENTIONS:
In this film, I took photographs of the
reflections
that the
buildings
created on the
car

windows
. I wanted to
continue
to
investigate

reflection
as well as
pattern
, common
themes
that occur in
previous films
.
5th Film - Car Pattern -
Taken inside/outside car - Focus on Lines, Repetition and reflections
INTENTIONS:
For my fifth film I took pictures of the interesting
patterns
I could find in and on
cars
.
In this film I wanted to
continue
to
investigate
the
pattern
and
repetition
which was present in the
previous

film
.
These photos have come from my 4th film in which I have been exploring
REPETITION
and
NARROWING

PERSPECTIVE
.
WOLFGANG TILLMANS - Biography
This photograph
CATCHES MY ATTENTION
more than any of the other photographs in this series as I like how the magnets
STAND OUT
against the rest of photograph. They are bold and chunky with a definite shape compared to the other

LESS SIGNIFICANT
objects which gives this photo its
MAIN

FOCUS.

I also like the way that the magnets are
ARRANGED
, and how each object is spaced apart from the other objects, they are deliberately, not randomly placed. Even though in many of the other photos in this
SERIES
of the windowsill photographs there are many objects, its the focus on the magnets that makes this photo so
UNIQUE
.
Overall I think this photograph is very
SUCCESSFUL
, but if I was to
IMPROVE
this photograph I would tease the viewer even more by including another object
PARTLY

SHOWN
, but most of it out of view out the
FRAME
.

The photograph was most likely to be taken during the
DAY
, as all
LIGHT
used in the photograph seems to be from a natural source (the window directly behind the photograph). From the
cast from some of the objects in this photograph I can also tell that this photograph was probably taken around the
EVENING TIME/SUNRISE
.

Also, by looking at the photograph, particularly at the
OLD FASHIONED
radiator, we can guess that the photograph was perhaps taken in the late 1900's. The 'modern art' aspect of this photo also suggests and supports that it was probably taken in the last 50 years.

However there are no clues in the photograph to tell us
WHERE
exactly this picture was taken or
WHAT
the
CONCEPT
was behind taking this photograph.

These images were taken at the very

EARLY STAGES
of my project.

WHY PHOTOGRAPH IS MY FAVOURITE IN FILM:
Both my
FAVOURITE
and best photographs are very similar. To the left is my favorite image from the film, it

summaries the subject matter of my first film
;
circular shapes
and
repetition
, which are also the
MOST IMPORTANT

aspects of this photograph (I have emphasized these factors in experimentation).

Greenhouse Glass Reflection and Structure
The
3D
rings really caught my attention in this photograph of the top of a wooden post. I wanted to enhance the the
CIRCULAR SHAPES
embedded in the wood. To do this I increased the
CONTRAST
of the photograph from neutral to 100%. This meant the
LIGHTER
areas appeared lighter and the
DARKER
areas appeared darker, overall making the
RING SHAPES
stand out more as you can see in the 'After' photograph.

WOLFGANG TILLMANS
(born in 1968), is one of most recognized young photographers worldwide.

Although I have not chosen this photograph to be my best or favorite, I think it still is
relevant
to my first film...
This photo is
significant
as it shows a
repeating

circular

pattern
inside a
circular
shaped object
similar to the rings in wood.

Still Life Photography Comparisons
Much of Wolfgang
TILLMANS
work fits into the
STILL LIFE GENRE
.

Some of Tillmans work, especially his windowsill photograph collection is very
SIMILAR
to the works of
IRVING PENN
.
• Everyday common household objects

Have been arranged
• Non valuable
• Simple surrounding setting
• Objects placed indoors
• Both pictures are colour
• Orange filter to picture or increased saturation to make oranges look more orange
• Main focus of oranges and cup

• Everyday common household objects
• Have been arranged
• Non valuable
• Placed on simple marble background so we don’t get distracted and focus on the objects
• Both pictures are in colour
• No filter
• Colours of objects in both pictures seem coordinated
• This picture has our focus as we start to question why the objects where placed the way they were and how the playing card at the back is balanced
• Objects in photo are not normally photographed
• Both photographs have food in

CAMERA TECHNIQUES:
I think the
CAMERA ANGLE
plays a huge part in the
SUCCESS
of this photo, as did not take it at
EYE LEVEL
height, as this would make the photo boring. I also didn't want to show much of the rest of the log.

DEVELOPMENTS:
Throughout this film, I have started to introduce the idea of
PERSPECTIVE
and
VANISHING POINTS
, which I have later explored in my
NEXT
film.
Experimentation with Contrast and Colour
The Windowsill photograph compared to other photographs
This photo relates to the
window sill
picture as there is very little
colour
shown, and the majority of both photos look to be taken with a
greyscale

Similarity
Difference
Alike the magnets in the window sill picture, this yellow box is the main point of interest, so both photos have a key focus.
This photo is also
similar
to the window sill photo as both photos include
objects
Not every
object
in either photo is fully shown. For example in the picture opposite two pointed objects are only half shown
The
subject
of the photo is different in the two pictures
All the
objects
are random
However all of the objects have a similar

use; they are all kitchen utensils.
Artist Influences - Contrast, pattern, lines - Mario Giacomelli
I really liked the
repet
ition,
narrowing view point
and
pattern
in the origi
nal unedited photo on the
left. To
emphasize
these
features, I converted the

image to
grayscale
, then i
ncreased
contrast
by
100% then saved photo an
d increased
contrast
by
100% again. Then used the '
b
urn
' tool to darken the

image. I am very
with

the
edited
photo
result and recognize that they

are similar too to
the works of
Mario Giacomelli.

MY WORK
MARIO'S WORK
The vertical lines on my photograph run straight whereas the lines on Mario Giacomelli's work are curved.
Same levels of contrast in both pictures
Both pictures in grayscale
Both pictures have narrowing perspective
Both Photographs incorporate the pattern and repetition of lines
For this development, I wanted to make the wooden blocks on the left look more like bricks to represent how both film 3 and 4 are related in their
PATTERN
and
REPETITION
. I did this by increasing the
CONTRAST
to image on the left and by applying a red
FILTER
I also lowered the
BRIGHTNESS
levels of the picture to make them look more 'brick-like'.
WHY PHOTOGRAPH IS BEST IN FILM:
In this film, I think that the most
SIGNIFICANT
photograph is the one I chose as my best, I
LIKE
it because its
UNIQUE
to the other photographs as I tried to tie in both
ASPECTS
of this film into one photograph;
REPETITION
(and
PATTERN
) and the new
IDEA

of

REFLECTION
, although this idea behind the photograph may not be clear to other people.
MY WORK

VISUAL ELEMENTS:
The most
VISUAL ELEMENT
in the brick
PATTERN
- particularly the white lines of the mortar. The
BRIGHT

LINES
of mortar lead your eyes toward the end of the wall where it turns a corner.

The photograph has been taken in full
COLOR
,
and may have been color

ENHANCED
. The photograph looks like it was taken on the spur of the moment although the car may have been placed there
DELIBERATELY
.

When I first looked at the photograph my eyes immediately went toward the brick
PATTERN
which contrasts from the busyness above.

INTENTIONS:
Now looking back at this image, I realize that I wanted to show
REPETITION
in wood in a slightly different way from my previous film. From this photo, you can still see all the different
LINES
and
RINGS
on the wood, but from a slightly different
PERSPECTIVE
than last time.

INFLUENCES:
When taking the photograph described as my

FAVORITE

DEVELOPMENT:
I hope to
CONTINUE
this
THEME
of reflection,in my next films, and I am going to investigate the most important
ASPECTS
of this film; square shapes and structures found in reflection further in my next films..
Influences - Photographer - Lee Friedlander - Subject Matter (Wing Mirror)
My work
I think my image is
SIMILAR
to Gearons photograph as the two images
LAYERED
over each other create a 'reflection effect', where you start to look at the image as if it were a
REFLECTION
.

inspired
by the gritty
Neo

Realist
films of
Vittorio De Sica

Experimentation 2
Original Image
I loved the
reflection
of the buildings in the original photograph, and wanted to
emphasize
this through
experimentation
.

Experimentation 1
-
I used a
selection tool
to select all of the
glasswork
that did not include the building reflections. I then
inverted
the colour to
black and white
to make the
colorful reflection stand out
.

Experimentation 2
-
I used a
selection tool
to select all of the
glasswork
that did
not
include the building reflections. Then I changed the
selected layer
into a solid block of
colour
, so that when looking at the
new image
you would not be distracted from the
building reflection
.

Main focus on the peeling paint
Andre Kertesz has a photography project dedicated on
DISTORTIONS

and
REFLECTIONS
. I was inspired by his photograph on the right. I liked the distorted
SHAPES
present in his work. I also really like the
LOW

camera
ANGLES
he uses in many examples of his work. When I took this photograph I was

INFLUENCED
by this low camera angle
IDEA
.
When I took this photograph of the reflection of my house, I was inspired by the work of Joseph Sudek. In the photograph to the left Sudek has photographed the
REFLECTION
of an egg through a
MULTI-SIDED
glass, creating a
DISTORTION

EFFECT
which I
RECREATED
with the reflection of my house on the
LIGHT
of the car.
WHY PHOTOGRAPH IS THE BEST IN FILM:
This is my
BEST
photograph that again shown
PERSPECTIVE
and
PATTERNS
. Not only can you see the
THIN
bars of the roof
CONVERGING
, toward a vanishing point, but you can also see the wider bars getting narrower and the spaces between getting
SMALLER

as it becomes further away.

I think that this is what other people would see in the photograph.

Original
Experimentation with Selection to Emphasize structure of greenhouse
Diagram Showing Bricks and vanishing poin
t
After taking the original photograph as shown above, I realize I really
LIKED
the
STRUCTURE
of the glass which I also explored in my last film. I wanted to
EMPHASIZE
this through experimentation.

To do this, I used a
POLYGONAL LASSOO TOOL
to select each pane of glass, I then made all of the selected panes appear as a solid white color.

When I took this photograph (on the left), I was inspired by the works of an ex student that previously attended college.
I loved:
The
lines
present in both photographs
The idea of
clean
white paper behind a
complex
surface
The
angles
shown in both photographs
How the photograph was taken at the
corner
of a
building

I firstly tried using just one image.
I pasted this image into the panes in the green house by using the lassoo tool, this allows you to select a polgon shape and paste an image into the area selected.
Secondly, I tried using images all from the same film, I zoomed out on different photographs to create a varied effect.
In this experimentation towards my final image, I used photographs from 3 of my films, I also varied their perspective and size (ie. by zooming in and out). I plan to include more films in my final image.

circular pattern on logs
Experimentation with Sharpness to emphasize shapes, layout and pattern
Before
After
I really loved the
VANISHING
point in the photo above.
To
EMPHASIZE
this I
CROPPED

the photo in experimentation, so that just a small area around the band of light was showing creating the
EFFECT
of a further
VANISHING

POINT
.
I also loved the
REPETITION
present, so to emphasize this, I increased the
SHARPNESS
of the image; so lighter areas in between the pattern would be less
SIGNIFICANT
in the
FINAL

image.
I think this experimentation has proved to be very
SUCCESSFUL
, as from the
NEW

image the
PATTERN

is clearer, and the
REPETITION
stands out.

Final Image
Evaluation
My project is all about the exploration of
CIRCLES, REPETITION
and
REFLECTION
.
I mainly took photographs around my local
ALLOTMENT
area, and also the reflections that I could find on
GLASS SURFACES
.
Towards the
START
of my project, I mainly photographed
CIRCULAR
objects or objects that showed
REPETITION
within them. When I started to
CONCLUDE
my project I found myself looking at
GLASS
and
GREENHOUSE
structure,

PATTERN
and finally
REFLECTIONS
.
I found that
LEE

FRIEDLANDER
INFLUENCE
on the
STYLES
and
TECHNIQUES
of photography used in my project, in particular his work on
REFLECTIONS
.
I loved the reflection of the car in the original photograph.

To
EMPHASIZE
this factor in experimentation, I decided to make the car and the tree in the background appear in color (in both real life and reflection) and everything else appear in
GREYSCALE
.

To do this I used the 'Reverse black and white
FUNCTION
to make non important parts black and white and important parts color.

The

OVERALL EFFECT

has been very
EFFECTIVE
as now the car is clear in both the reflection on the rest of the photograph.
INTENTIONS
: For my
final

film
, I photographed a
greenhouse
using many different
camera angles
to show the
structure
and
repetition
the
glass created
, and the
reflection
I found on the glass.
I really
LIKE
the
REFLECTION
and
SYMMETRY
of the two windscreen mirrors.

To

EMPHASIZE
them and their reflection, I decided to
LIGHTEN

the
BACKGROUND
behind the windscreen mirrors so it would overall have
LESS
of an

IMPACT

in the photograph, and would be less distracting.

To do this, I

SELECTED
the wind mirrors so they would stay
UNEDITED
, then selected the background and
INCREASED

the
LIGHTING
by 50%.
Overall I think this has had a
POSITIVE IMPACT
on my photograph as the
INTENTION

of the photograph is much
CLEARER
.
BEFORE
AFTER
Before
After
I love the work of the artist Martin Kenneth as I think the
LINES
and
SHAPES
present in his work.
Although this is not one of my favorite or best films it is definitely worth a mention as it shows
examples
of both
pattern
and
reflection
present in
previous
films.

WHY PHOTOGRAPH IS MY FAVOURITE IN FILM:
I have chosen the other photograph in the frame above to be my
FAVOURITE
as I love the way that reflection and pattern were shown as well as some of the car that appeared underneath the reflection. I don't think the other photographs show this as well.
Throughout this project, I have
EXPERIMENTED
with almost every film,
EMPHASIZING
the most
IMPORTANT

ASPECTS
, however I have mainly worked with altering and increasing
CONTRAST

levels in photographs.
When looking at his image you don't know whether to
concentrate
on the image behind of the boy and girl in the garden, or the slightly
fantasy

image
of the bears in the forest. This is
similar
to my photograph, as you don't know whether to
focus
on the
reflection
of the garden or the actual car being photographed
behind
the
reflection
.
For one of these further 3 films , I travelled to London to photograph the
REFLECTIONS
on larger
GLASS

BUILDINGS
. When taking photographs I also realized that I liked the glass - work and
STRUCTURE

ASPECT
and this then linked to the themes of
PATTERN
and
REPETITION
explored earlier in my project. During the second stage of the development of my project when I investigated
REFLECTION
, I was very
INSPIRED
by the works of
LEE

FRIEDLANDER
and his reflection photography so much so that he has become one of the major
INFLUENCES
of the second stage of my project.
LASTLY
If I were to complete this project
AGAIN
, I would have
INVESTIGATED

PATTERN
further, to show
DIFFERENT

ELEMENTS
of
REPETITION
within the
SAME
object.
AFTER

completing this project I realize that I see things in a very 'black and white'

MANNER
,
and I
THINK

my project also

PORTRAYS
this with its

CLEAR

and

SIMPLICITY
.
I also think the
ELEMENT

of

SIMPLICITY

in my photographs makes my work

STAND

OUT

against other photographers.
In
MORE

DETAIL
, one of the main
STRENGTHS
of the project were
FILMS
8 and 9. They were in my
OPINION
the
MOST

SUCCESSFUL
because they
DEMONSTRATED
and
SUMMARIZED
both of the
KEY

ASPECTS
of my project in just two films.
Throughout my project I have had to
OVERCOME
many
PROBLEMS
, but the main
ISSUE
has consisted of what to photograph
NEXT
PREVIOUS

FILM
. This has been
DIFFICULT
for my project as the subject matter of each film is quite limiting, and very difficult to explore further while still being relevant. Therefore there are not many films of the same objects being photographed. However the same
KEY

IDEAS
of
PATTERN
/
REPETITION
/
REFLECTION
run throughout and are
CONTINUED
from one film to another. The fact that the
SUBJECT

MATTER
of my films is slightly
LIMITING
is a
WEAKNESS
of my films.
In my
OPINION
, I have full filled my
AIMS
of this project fully because from every film I have taken, it is very
CLEAR
to someone else what I was
INTERESTED
in and my
FOCUS
and
OBJECTIVES
. Each film also leads on to each other with a clear focus which can be seen from my
FINAL

IMAGES
for each film. I have also used a variety of
CAMERA

TECHNIQUES
when photographing some of my films and have
EMPHASIZED
the
FEATURES
of photographs I
LIKE
through
EXPERIMENTATION
. I think these are some of the main
SUCCESSES
from this project.
MARIO

GIACOMELLI

INFLUENCE

in the films I have taken in the 1st half of my project as his
EXPLORATIONS

of

PATTERN
,
REPETITION

and more importantly the
CONTRAST

levels present in some of his photographs have

HELPED
me with some

EXPERIMENTATION

ideas in order to

ACHIEVE
a similar

EFFECT
.
Throughout this project, I was
INTERESTED

IN

EXPLORING
the themes of
REFLECTION
,
REPETITION
, and
PATTERN
. When I
BEGAN
this project, I started to look at the pattern and repetition I could find in allotment
OBJECTS
, this then lead me on to look at the
PATTERN
I could find in wood, blocks of wood, bricks and finally the patterns found inside cars. I was then
INSPIRED
by the reflection on one of the car windows and decided to investigate this idea further so photographed a further 3 films
INVESTIGATING
reflection. (This transition can be seen on the left)

Both objects are not deliberately placed

Deliberately piled up for storage

Both show perspective along their length

Both photographers standing obliquely to their subjects in order to get the ends of the pots and logs & their length

Both images observe signs of decay which add to the feel of the photograph

Both taken on overcast days as no shadows
Subjects are simple so eyes are drawn to the details

Steichen includes a second object in his photograph which gives the photograph more interest

Logs don't have the same depth as the pots, so the shadows cast by the sun would not have had much of a difference on the photograph unlike if this happened to the pots.
I was inspired by the photography works of an ex student. I really liked the
SUBJECT

MATTER
and the camera
ANGLES
used, to show the different perspectives of the greenhouse.

Therefore the
STYLES
and
TECHNIQUES
in
BOTH
mine and the ex-students photographs were both
CLOSELY

RELATED
. I
LOVE
the way that in neither mine or the ex students photographs, the whole greenhouse picture is shown, only parts and panes of the greenhouse are shown making the
VIEWER
question as to what is actually being photographed and therefore
INCREASING
the
INTEREST
of the photographs.

Film 4: Bricks - taken at home.
Focus on perspective, pattern and repetition.

IMPORTANT ASPECTS:
The most
IMPORTANT

ASPECT
of the photograph has to be the
LIGHTING
. This was a factor that I had no
CONTROL
over when taking the photograph, however this has
POSITIVELY

IMPACTED
this photograph, as if the
LIGHTING
were any
BRIGHTER
the 3 image LAYERS would not be shown; the background; the reflection; looking through the glass to the other side and finally looking through the greenhouse. This '
LAYERING

EFFECT
' is present in Lee Friedlanders reflection photography, and he has been one of my major
INFLUENCES
.

DEVELOPMENT:
I am going to use the '
LAYERING
' aspect of these photographs as explained above in my
FUTURE

FILMS
.
I have started to demonstrate this in the photographs I took of the
REFLECTIONS
in the car windows; the reflections of the trees outside of the car, the outside of the car, the seats inside the car, plus the images through the window on the other side.

Larger Experimentation within my project; looking at the bigger picture:
When I studied my project overall, I noticed the way in which my photography style has evolved from film to film.
One of this project's main focus was pattern and repetition. At the start of this project, I started to photograph the patterns and repetition I could find within the
SAME
object.
Towards the end of my project, I noticed I started to focus on the pattern and repetition that
MANY
objects created when photographed together.
This transition can be shown from photographs taken from each film. I have shown this below:
5. Create a frame showing all the
camera angles
I have used throughout my
4th film
on bricks
Overall, throughout this project, I am
ACTUALLY
experimenting with: repetition; pattern; shape; materials and lastly composition.
INTENTIONS:
For my first film I visited my local
allotment
. I was surprised at the amount of
circle

shapes
I found. This proves to be the main
focus
of this film. I also focused on wheelbarrow
wheels
.
REASONING:
I wanted to start to
experiment
with the idea of
shape
and
repetition
.
EVALUATE
:
In this film, I fulfilled my
intentions
, as well as
introducing
the new idea of
repetition
. In my next film, I want to further
explore
using the idea of
repetition
, using
circle

shapes
as a main
focus
.
INTENTIONS:

For my second film I went to Sparsholt. I wanted to
continue
the
theme
of
circles
in my
previous
film but also show the many
patterns
and
lines
I found on the logs.
REASONING
:
In this film, I wanted to not only
focus
on
lines
,
circles
and
pattern
, but also the idea of
repetition
.
EVALUATE
:
When looking back at this film, I really liked the
idea
of photographing
narrowing perspective
, and the
repetition
of
square shapes.

IN MY NEXT FILM, I WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO EXPERIMENT WITH CIRCULAR SHAPES AND CONTRAST
PROBLEMS:
Some of the photographs are too
'zoomed in'.
If I were to take this film
again
, I would have used the
zoom function
and
zoomed out
, so more
'vanishing point' perspectives
could be shown.
OPINION

Image Analysis to show Key Elements; pattern and repetition
ELEMENTS I LIKED:
This photograph is unique to my film as it shows the
pattern
of a
NATURAL
object compared to the

objects mainly photographed in my film (wheelbarrow wheels).
Looking back at this image, I can see that I was very interested in the
repeating circles
(
rings
), and

pattern
I found on this wooden post.

CAMERA TECHNIQUES:
When taking this picture I decided to use a
MANUAL FOCUS
function to

BLUR
out the background behind the wooden post, to stop the viewer from getting distracted and to make my focus of the photograph
CLEARER
. I used of the
ZOOMING
function on my camera to show the rings on the post in more detail.

I had no control over the
LIGHTING
in this photograph, although, I think the
NATURAL

LIGHTING
POSITIVE
impact on this photograph as it shows the true colors of the wooden rings, on the post, whereas artificial light would not allow this.

IMPROVEMENTS:
To
IMPROVE
this photograph, I would change the day I took the photo. I think the overcast
WEATHER
limited the light levels.

WHY PHOTOGRAPH IS THE BEST IN FILM:
My
BEST
photograph shows the
SAME

QUALITIES
as in my favorite photograph. I have chosen it to be the best out of the whole film, as I think I took the photo at the right
HEIGHT
, and the
LIGHTING
was just right.
Key Image/s
Key Image/s
Key Image/s
The image of
CIRCULAR SHAPED LOGS
to the left of this writing was my
FAVORITE
photograph throughout the whole of my 2nd film.
PHOTOGRAPH INTENTIONS:
When I took this photograph, I wanted to show; the
CIRCULAR

PATTERN
of the logs and
INSIDE
the logs i.e. the circular rings.

I also wanted to feature another type of
REPETITION
.
The repetition not only in one log, but in many put together. To
MAXIMISE
this repetition throughout the logs, when I took the photo I
STOOD

BACK
to allow more logs to be photographed, (instead if zooming in like I have done in my previous film.)

To the left of this paragraph is my
BEST
photograph taken throughout this film. I have chosen it to be my best photograph, as I
LOVE
the way the wood seems to
VANISH
into the distance. I am going to
EXPLORE
this theme further in my
NEXT
film.
WHY PHOTOGRAPH IS THE BEST IN FILM:
When taking this photograph I chose to include more logs in the background, to show ho
w
VAS
T the pattern is

I think these
2 KEY IDEAS

behind taking this photograph are clear to a wide audience and make up the most
IMPORTANT
features of this film.
OUT OF CONTROL IMPACTS :
The
DAYLIGHT

LEVELS
NEGATIVE
impact on this photograph, and in
MY

OPINION
worsen the photographs quality as the pattern on the individual logs is harder to see. If I was to take this photo again, I would include more of the logs in the background to show how the
PATTERN CONTINUES
.
REASONING:
I wanted to
investigate
how a sense of
pattern
and
repetition
were created by the
layout
of
wooden blocks
, and also by the
lines
within the
blocks
.
EVALUATE:
In this film, I fulfilled my
intentions, to investigate repetition and pattern.
I also

continued to
explore
the idea of
perspective
. In my next film, I want to further
explore

perspective
using bricks as a main
focus
.
IMPORTANT ASPECTS:
The
MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT
of this image has to be the pattern that the blocks of wood create.
WHY PHOTOGRAPH IS BEST IN FILM:
To the bottom left of this frame is my
BEST

photograph from this film. All the photographs in this film are of the same
SUBJECT MATTER
ie. of blocks of wood.
When I took this picture, I decided to move the
CAMERA
upwards to achieve a different viewpoint. The photograph was taken looking onto the wood from
ABOVE
.
This was a good decision, as from this camera
ANGLE
you could see more of the wood, whereas taking a photo looking at the face of the wood
DIRECTLY
would not have been so
EFFECTIVE
.
OUT OF CONTROL IMPACTS:
As the blocks of wood were situated in a cupboard, the
LIGHT LEVELS
were very limiting and therefore if I were to take this photo again, I would
REARRANGE

the blocks of wood outside of the cupboard for better lighting, or, I would take the photos under an
ARTIFICIAL LIGHT.
I am also glad I took this film in the college grounds, where there were many blocks of wood were available. The location of this film has had a
POSITIVE IMPACT
on my photographs.

WHY PHOTOGRAPH IS MY FAVOURITE IN FILM:
I have chosen the other photograph as my
FAVORITE
as I like the lines and shapes which I am later going to explore in my next films.
PHOTOGRAPHERS INTENTIONS:
I think that the photographer
BENT

DOWN
to take this photograph. This could either be to
MAXIMIZE
the concrete to brick
BALANCE
or to avoid a window or roofing to get in the shot.
PHOTOGRAPHERS INTENTIONS:
The photograph shown on the right was taken by
WILLIAM

EGGLESTON
,
and shows a
PORTRAIT

photograph of brick wall. The photograph
FOCUSES
on
PERSPECTIVE
and I think the photographer simply liked what he saw, I don't think there was any
RATIONALE.
CONTINUATION:
If there were more images to this set, I would
IMAGINE
that they would all feature more photographs of bricks. The car shown in the photo is not fully shown and therefore not fully depicted.
The cars
tells us that this picture was taken in sunny conditions. I think the shadow is
IMPORTANT
as it adds to the interest off the photograph that would otherwise be clinical. The
SIZE
of the shadow is also just right in terms of size as it doesn't detract from the rest of the photograph.
The use of
PERSPECTIVE
in this photo is very
SIMILAR
to
MY OWN.
I will continue to investigate this element as well as the ideas of pattern and repetition in my next film.
PROBLEMS:
In some photos, the
lines
of mortar did not stand out against the
bricks.
I will
highlight
these lines of mortar, by making the photographs of a
high contrast
in
experimentation. (Inspired
by
Mario Giacomelli
REASONING:
I chose
bricks
as the
main

subject

matter
, as the
lines
of mortar were able to
emphasize
the different
perspectives
of the bricks.
EVALUATE:
In this film, I fulfilled my
intentions, to continue to investigate repetition, pattern
and
perspective.
I also started to
explore
the idea of
layout
and
order
. In my next film, I want to further explore pattern and layout using the different patterns found inside and outside a car as a
focus
.
Image Analysis to show Key Elements; Repetition and Narrowing Perspective
All the photos in my this film show a narrowing perspective, however I think that the photograph named 'best' shows this
MOST EFFECTIVELY.

CAMERA TECHNIQUES:
When I took the picture of the wall, I decided to
ANGLE
the camera along the wall rather than up the wall. This was a
GOOD DECISION

as the
HORIZONTAL
lines were more prominent than the
VERTICAL
lines, and therefore gave the picture a better effect as they got smaller, and ran into the distance.

INTENTIONS:
The
BEST
photo out of my fourth film was the photo I took of a brick wall. When looking back at this image, I realize that I really

LIKE

the

REGULAR

PATTERN
that the bricks create. I think this
IDEA
behind taking this photograph is also clear to other people, as the photograph is
SIMPLISTIC
.

DEVELOPMENT:
If I were to take a photo
SIMILAR

to this again then I would find a longer wall to photograph where the
VANISHING

POINT
of the brick lines may have been visible, however I don't think I could have
IMPROVED
this photo as there was a window in the way stopping the continuation of bricks in the photo. This was a
FACTOR
that I could not
CONTROL
.

IMPORTANT ASPECTS:
THE MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT
of this photograph is its perspective, which makes it the
MOST APPEALING
out of all the other photos in my film.
INFLUENCES:
When I took this photograph, I was inspired by
MARIO

GIACOMELLIS
'
work and the simplicity of the
LINES
in the grass, the vertical repetition they created and how they decreased in size.
WHY PHOTOGRAPH IS FAVOURITE IN FILM:
I have chosen my other photo to be my
FAVOURITE
out of this film, as it is the most
UNIQUE
, as I love the way I have photographed the corner of the wall to create a different effect.
Influence: Photographer -
Andre Kertesz - Distortions
COMPOSITION:
The picture is made up of
LAYERS
of images: - there are two people outside the building taking photographs; you can secondly see people through the large panes of glass, and finally you can see the reflection of the cliff face on the glass windows
SUBJECT MATTER:
The
LEFT
photograph is of two people standing with the
REFLECTION
on the glass behind them of the 4 US presidents carved into a cliff in South Dakota, USA
KEY ELEMENTS:
The photograph has been taken in
BLACK

AND

WHITE
. I think this
INTENTIONALLY
makes the photo more confusing and
MIXES
together the
ELEMENTS
of
REFLECTION
and
.
Some images are
STRONG
, while others are more faint. If the same image was taken in
COLOUR
then the reflection of the trees and people outside would
DOMINATE
the picture.
EFFECTIVENESS:
This picture is
EFFECTIVE
as you need to study it carefully to work out which people are
OUTSIDE
the building, and which people are
INSIDE
.

INTENTIONS
:
I think that the photographer was amused by the mixture of images. I
DON'T

think the image was
PURPOSEFULLY
arranged, I think it was taken on spur of the moment, as the positions the people are very
NATURAL
.

VISUAL ELEMENTS:
The most
IMPORTANT

VISUAL

ELEMENT
of the work is of the two people outside. They provide the
that connects the other 2 images. The viewer can see what they are looking at and what's in front of them, but they can't.
The
GENRE
of the photograph is
STILL

LIFE
taken in a
LANDSCAPE
.

EMOTIONS CONVEYED:
The image is slightly
HUMOROUS
, as Friedlander has taken a photograph of the two people standing, however they are unaware of this as they are so occupied with looking at the view in front of them that they will never know.

OUT OF CONTROL IMPACTS:
The fact that the
SUN
isn't shining
BRIGHTLY
means that the reflections of the cliff, trees and people outside are not stronger than the images inside the building. This helps the element of confusion. On a sunny day the objects outside would appear too bright, and the 'layering' effect would not be achieved, making the photographs less interesting.
PROBLEMS
:
If I were to take this film
again
, I would take more photographs which include further
exploring
the
idea
of
narrowing

perspective
.

REASONING
:
In this film, I wanted to not only
focus
on
lines
,
circles
and
pattern
, but also the idea of
reflection
.
EVALUATE
:
Towards the end of the film I started to move on to the study of
reflection
which I hope to
continue
in my
next film.

Image Analysis to show Key Elements; Repetition, pattern and Reflection
CAMERA TECHNIQUES:
Therefore when I took this picture, I

ZOOMED

OUT
to capture both of the above
ASPECTS
. However if I were to
RETAKE
this picture, I would change the camera
ANGLE
, to make it face more downwards and to show more of the
PATTERN

INSIDE
the car as there is not the equal
BALANCE
between reflection and pattern that I hoped to create.
OUT OF CONTROL IMPACTS:
The low levels of
BRIGHTNESS
limited the amount of reflection I was able to get on the cars surface however this was beyond my control, and
AFFECTED
how I wanted the photo to look.
FOCUS:
Other people may look at this image and suggest I was
FOCUSING
more on symmetry or even something else.
IMPROVEMENTS
:
The reflection
ASPECT
of this photograph would be better
EMPHASIZED
if that was all I photographed. I plan to explore this further in my
NEXT FILMS.

WHY PHOTOGRAPH IS MY FAVOURITE FILM:
My
FAVORITE
out of this
FIFTH
film, is another picture showing reflection. I think this photograph is
EFFECTIVE
as it represents, what I would like to
EXPLORE
in my next film.
• He was awarded the Turner
PRIZE
in 2000 and has presented his work around the world his work was exhibited at the Tate Gallery in Britain 2003

• Much of his photography was
INSPIRED
from magazine clippings

• His photographs in exhibitions are set out in ‘constellations’, and objects are often shown to show his inspiration and thought processes.

• Tillman’s work explores many
GENRES
of portraiture, landscape and abstract photography
• He came from an

ARTISTIC BACKGROUND
which eventually developed into photography.
Artist Analysis: Wolfgang Tillmans: shape and colour
This photograph was taken by the photographer
WOLFGANG TILLMANS,
as part of his still life windowsill photograph collection. The photograph shows a windowsill with numerous common but random
OBJECTS
on it - a
THEME
that commonly appears in other examples of his work.
Some of the
OBJECTS
photographed in the picture include magnets, a reel of copper wire, a key, a conker, some glass lenses and some Alan keys.

The photograph was taken in
NATURAL

LIGHT
, with no
FILTERS/ COLOUR EFFECTS
added, although when looking at this photo, it does perhaps look like it was taken using a

GREY

SCALE
filter, but the golden key and orange copper wire argue against this.
This photo does not suggest any
EMOTION
. The photographers
ATTITUDE
towards the
SUBJECT

MATTER
is quite simplistic and unclear to the viewer as with what he was trying to
PORTRAY
with this image.
KEY ASPECTS:
EMOTIONS&

ATTITUDES:

As nothing in this picture is moving (as it is an image of
STILL LIFE
), it is difficult to get any ideas about the aperture,

ISO
or shutter speed that this photo was taken with.

CAMERA TECHNIQUES:
The photo looks as if it was taken at
EYE

LEVEL
, but the camera was
FACING DOWNWARDS
.

I think that the

MOST IMPORTANT ASPECT
of this photograph is the mystery behind it. The photograph is
APPEALING
to the viewer as it starts to make us question what all the objects in the picture have in common and what he has
PHOTOGRAPHED
them all together for.
COMPOSITION
IMPORTANT ASPECTS
I believe that the low levels of dull and

NATURAL LIGHTING

positively
IMPACTED
on the photo and helped the magnets to stand out more as the light reflected off them and made them look more metallic.
I also think this is a great photograph, as it is
FRAMED EFFECTIVELY
with the radiator at the bottom of the photo and the windowsill at the top of the top of the photo.
OVERALL IMPACT
IMPACTS OUT OF CONTROL
Comparison of WOLFGANG Tillman's work to to the works of Ivring Penn
Tillman's windowsill photograph
• Picture is taken at maybe the evening in the summer
• The colours in this picture are coordinated from the orange oranges to the orange rust on the window to the brown seive in the cup
• Multiple objects photographed
REASONING:
I chose to photograph car
windows
as they offered a smooth
surface
for the clearest
reflection
.
In my
next film,
I want to further
explore
the
idea
of
reflection
on car
windows
with buildings as a
subject matter.
EVALUATE:

In this film, I fulfilled my
intentions;
to start to
investigate refection
as I partly started to explore in my
previous film.
The building windows will help to
continue
the
repetition
aspect on my work, as they will create a
pattern,
when they are reflected in varying ways on different parts of the car.
PROBLEMS:
If I were to take this film
again
, I would have thought of more ways to
emphasize
the
idea
of
order
and
layout
, 2 common
themes
that run throughout many of my
previous

films
.
In this film I feel that I am beginning to
CONCLUDE
my project.
SUBJECT MATTER:
This film consists of many
LANDSCAPE
and
PORTRAIT
photos of
REFLECTIONS

of my house and garden on the car and car windows.
IMPORTANT ASPECTS:
The most
IMPORTANT

ASPECT
of these photos, is the fact that not all of the image is shown.

I
LOVE
the way in which when looking at the photos of this film, you don't know whether to concentrate on the reflection on the car or try to work out what is being photographed underneath the reflection. It is these thought processes that make the photographs
INTERESTING
, and also very similar to the works of photographer
WOLFGANG

TILLMANS
in the way that not everything is shown.
INTENTIONS:
Taking these photos in
COLOUR
makes them even more
EFFECTIVE
than they would be if I took them in black and white as more
DETAIL
is shown.

When I took this photo, I moved the car to get the most prominent reflections on the bonnet and windows as possible.

When looking at my best photo as shown above, I love how the windows change
SHAPE
and become
CURVED
on the reflection. I think the
WEATHER
POSITIVE IMPACT
on this film as it was overcast when I took this film, so the

LIGHT
levels were neither too high or too low.
IMPROVEMENTS:
If I were to take this photo again, I would vary the camera
ANGLES.
REASONING:
I chose
buildings
with square windows as the main
subject matter
reflected onto the
car windows
, as the square windows
created
different
patterns
and
repetitions
. I also loved the element of
confusion
within the photographs.
EVALUATION
: In my opinion, this film fulfilled it's
intentions
. I have
incorporated
all of the
main

themes
of the project so far including;
repetition, reflection, pattern, shape, colour and perspective
. In my
next
film, I want to
futher

explore
how a
reflection
can be
broken
up to create a
pattern
using many glass frames.
PROBLEMS:
The
natural

lighting
influence
on this film, and sometimes
impacted
photographs
negatively
.
Image Analysis to show Key Elements; Reflection and Repetiton
STAGE IN PROJECT:
These images mark the near
END
to my project, as they start to conclude as to what my project is about;
REFLECTION
,
STRUCTURE
and
REPETITION
.
I think that both my
FAVORITE
and

BEST
photographs are very
SIMILAR
in this film as they are both taken of reflections on the cars surface, similar to the rest of the
FILM
.
WHY PHOTOGRAPH IS MY BEST
:
To the bottom left is my
BEST
image from the film. When I took this picture I wanted to show the 3

DIFFERENT
types of reflection on the car; the reflection on the wing mirror; the reflection of the wing mirror and the general reflection on the glass. I think these

KEY

IDEAS
behind this film are also clear to other people as all photographs show a
CORRELATION
.

This photograph is

UNIQUE
to my film because it is the only photograph that shows three or more reflections.

OUT OF CONTROL IMPACTS:
I
AVOIDED
taking this picture in direct

SUNLIGHT
, as this would of had a negative

IMPACT
on the reflection making each photo look over

EXPOSED
.

CONTROL
over the natural

LIGHTING

in this photograph.

CAMERA TECHNIQUES
When looking back at this picture, I realize that I am slightly
DISAPPOINTED
with the camera
ANGLE
, and therefore if I were to
RETAKE
this photo, I would
LOWER
the camera angle to be positioned face on to the wing mirrors instead of from slightly above them.

When taking this picture
I
DECIDED

AGAINST
using
FLASH
to brighten the images as they would have
AFFECTED
the
REFLECTION
.
Key Image/s

TINA MODOTTI:
The photographer
Tina Modotti
,
focuses on narrowing pattern as shown by her photograph on the right. I would like to try and include this idea in my work.
IMPORTANT ASPECTS:
The
MOST IMPORTANT
parts of this photo in my opinion are the
reflections
and the
metal-glass structure
of the roof.

DEVELOPMENT:
To emphasize these features in future films and studies, I will concentrate on
repetition and reflection
, with different
camera aspects
.
This picture was taken from my 'London Reflections' film where I took photographs of 'never ending' and confusing reflections.
For other people, the
subject matter
of the photograph probably varies for example some people suggested that the glass framework was the
interest
of the photograph, rather than the never ending pattern.
This photo begins to
conclude

my project, as it ties in all the main
themes
I want to include in my final project.
MY
WORK
TINA
MODOTTI
Image Analysis to show Key Elements; Repetition, perspective and Reflection
REASONING:

I

loved
the way in
which t
he

glass
frames
split

up

reflection

of
other buildi
ngs
, and therefore created
repetition
and
pattern
.
EVALUATION:
This film marks the near
end

point
of my project. Looking back at this film, I have
fulfilled
my
intentions
. I was
influenced
by
Tina Modotti
to
continue
to include
perspective
in my work on a larger scale. In my
next
and final
film
, I plan to
continue
the study of
glass frames
,
repetition

reflection
and
perspective
, using a
greenhouse
as the
subject matter
.
PROBLEMS
:
If I w
ere to take
this film
again
, I
would have
zoomed
in

closer
to the
glass
, which wou
ld allow a
closer

detail

of t
he
reflections

being
shown.
POSITIVE IMPACTS:
I decided to take the picture of the
ROOF
of a building in London, by looking through a glass dividing wall.

I did this because I liked the
INTERACTION
between the

VERTICAL
bars of the wall and the
HORIZONTAL
bars of the roof structure.

Also I
LIKED
the element of
CONFUSION
- are we looking at the reflection of the roof at the top of the picture, or are we looking through the glass?
Despite the
STRUCTURE
being harsh and industrial looking, it lets a very diffuse and soft light through.
I also liked the
of the beam running under and supporting the roof, as it was
DARKER
and
STRONGER
.

IMPROVEMENTS:
To
IMPROVE
the image, I would take the photograph with my camera on its
SIDE
, this would have made the
VIEW
narrower, but would have increased the
DEPTH OF FIELD
to show even more
PERSPECTIVE
.

Also had the photograph been taken on a
SUNNY
day, there would be a crisscrossing of
which would have increased the
INTEREST
of the photograph.

The picture could have possibly been
FRAMED
-
if there was another round pillar for example.

STAGE IN PROJECT & DEVELOPMENT:
I feel that this film is
CONCLUDING
my project. In my next film, I am going to carry on the theme of
REFLECTION
and glass
STRUCTURE
.
Key Image/s
Ex Student work

DEVELOPMENT
: To add to this idea, for my final image I am going to replace some of the panes of glass with examples of photographs from my previous films.
I think this
DECISION
proved to be
EFFECTIVE
as now the metal work really stands out.
9th Film - Greenhouse - Taken on greenhouse - Reflection & Structure
Taken 7th Film:
Reflection of Buildings
Taken from 5th Film:
Car pattern
Taken from 6th Film:
Car reflection
REASONING
:
I chose to use the
glass

frames
of a
greenhouse
as the main
subject

matter
of this film, as they
incorporated
all of the different
themes
of my project, including;
perspective
,
pattern
,
repetition
,
reflection
,
shape
,
structure
, and the idea of
order
and
layout
.
EVALUATE:

Martin Kenneth
,
inspired
me to continue to
experiment
with
shape
and
structure
in this film. In my opinion, this has been very
successful
.
I will start to
combine
this film with all of my other films to create my
final

image
.
PROBLEMS:
If I were to take this film
again
, I would have chosen areas of the
greenhouse
where
vegetation
could be
reflected
onto the glass
panels
making this film slightly more
interesting
.
Image Analysis to show Key Elements; Reflection and Structure
WHY PHOTOGRAPH IS MY FAVOURITE IN FILM:
I am going to write about my
FAVORITE
film from this film as shown on the top left of this frame.

SUBJECT MATTER:
This photograph shows a greenhouse
ROOF
, with reflections on the surface of the glass.

INTENTIONS:
When I took this image, I was
INTENDING
to show both the
REFLECTION
on the greenhouse panes, and the
STRUCTURE
and
REPETITION
of the glass panes. However the reflection idea is more
PROMINENT
that the structure and pattern present in the image. I think
OTHERS
looking at the photograph will
AGREE
with me on this.

IMPROVEMENTS:
If I were to
RETAKE
this image, I would change the camera
ANGLE
so more of the reflection on the greenhouse was showing, as I do not like the
BALANCE
of
BACKGROUND
and greenhouse in this photograph.
When I took this picture I stood back so the the
VANISHING

POINT
of the glass panes could be shown. This was a
GOOD

DECISION
as this makes the photograph more
INTERESTING
.
KEY IDEAS:
This photograph also focuses on
STRUCTURE
and pattern making it not only
RELEVANT
to this film, but all my other films too.

WHY PHOTOGRAPH IS MY BEST IN FILM:
My
BEST
photograph was the best photograph from the film, as I have captured both
REFLECTION
and the '
LAYERING

EFFECT
' the most
EFFECTIVELY
than in other photographs in this film.
DEVELOPMENT?:
As this image (and film) ties in nearly all the
KEY

THEMES
I wanted to
REPRESENT
in my project (repetition, perspective, pattern and reflection), it is the
CONCLUSION
of my project.
Experimentation with rearranging images and pasting images into other images
