Don’t always trust what you think
My first assignment for my One month Photography “short term” class called “Photography as a document” was not the disaster I expected it to be. Seeing the Bates College campus day to day, it didn’t seem very inspirational to document a certain aspect of the campus. Not much after we were given the assignment, I decided to document banisters. I tried to give the handrails and architectural approach, which didn’t seem to work out.
The critique from the class really surprised me. First of all I should say, I wasn’t too fond of my work. Second of all, one of the 5 pieces that didn’t seem to fit with the rest of the images, was the one that got the most attention as a good photo with a sense of anachronism. This has lead me to post the image for you to see. Please if needed, tell me what I can do to improve! Again, this constructive criticism is one of the most helpful things to an artist.
The first five photos for the assignment will be posted as a gallery. I will enlarge two of the photos that got the most attention during the critique of my work.
Thanks for viewing,
