For the final project of this course, I set out to create a photo series that showed the absurdity of women’s clothing. How successful was I? Not particularly.
One of the last assignments in my black and white photography course tied into a presentation that each student had to prepare. Without our knowledge of this little assignment, each student had to present on a photographer of their choice. After doing so, we all had to take two photos and replicate either the style of the photographer or two of their own photos.
Arguably my favorite (and best) assignment that I did in these photography courses was the fifth black and white assignment. The idea was to present a small series of photos that somehow interacted with each other. My inspiration came sort of randomly, if I remember correctly. I had stumbled upon a cover of Grease’s “You’re the One That I Want” in a Chanel perfume ad. The song, by artist Lo-Fang, had captured my attention.
It was all about my height in this assignment.
I took…a lot of photos for my second assignment.
Going through all of these photos from my photography courses in university is bringing up a lot of interesting reactions of my own to the work I did.
Without a doubt, some of the worst work I’ve done (real attention grabbing, eh) was this assignment on night photography.
