Assignment 1 – Invisible People Rework

My tutor felt that a number of my compositions for assignment 1 (here) were weak and suggested that I considered reworking some of them. As he pointed out, composition is subjective but I agree that some of the compositions were neither close enough nor far enough away to engage the viewer. The reworked images are:

  • Milford House: I have revisited the location and must admit to have struggled to find any better angles on this large building in, what is, a narrow street. I have settled on a shot that was taken on the first visit which speaks to the mixed ethnicity of the residents.
  • Winchester Station: This was probably the only image that I was surprised to have been mentioned by my tutor. However, I am now using a wider crop of the same photo as it is another location that offers limited options.
  • North Street: This always one of the weakest images in the set and I have returned to the location and photographed the building in a much wide context. This is a far better photograph.
  • Sussex Street: My original choice was poor. When I first visited Sussex Street a scooter club happened to pass as I was setting up my shot and, misguidedly I chose an image that included some of the riders. This might have been interesting in other circumstances but, in the context of this project, was no more than a distraction.
  • Vaughan House: Another weak image in the original set and another location that is incredibly hard to photograph. Large buildings in narrow streets are challenging but I have now chosen a much wider angle and used a more appropriate lens to capture the photograph.

Final Presentation

My tutor also asked that I considered how to present this project as a final paper based submission. The following is my preferred approach, the width being equivalent to A3.
