Learning Outcome 2

Brief

Present a selected body of photographic work

Evidence

For my selected body of work I have chosen the following five images taken from Assignment 5 – Photography is Simple (reworked) which you can find the link to here. It was initially a choice between two assignments for this final selection as I had considered using the reworked component of assignment 4 as this had been for a major step-change in the way that I viewed my work outside of my own interests, but when I was considering my choices for what I wanted to submit, it turned out I would use that body of work in response to Learning Outcome 4.

The context with which I had approached this assignment was a sense of calm and the five images below best represent what I wanted to achieve with this. I have long been influenced by landscapes through my travels and in my pastimes and represents an area where we can often feel centred. Whether that be spending time with friends and family or just those alone moments where you can feel utterly blessed by what you see before you.

The other thing that these images convey from a technical standpoint and a personal one is that these landscape images are the first I have shot in manual mode on my camera.

Note: I have used the reworked version of assignment 5 as one of the images in my final selection appears there, the assignment does explain the rationale behind this and you can find a link to that assignment above.

I have placed a video of the final prints being shown:
