In my photo essays you probably wondered what all the page references were for. The reason for is that I took some college "field study" coursework while in the "field" of Europe. For the purposes of my picture taking and story plots, I used various literature. To save some time I will simply repost here my "pre-departure" Phase I report:For the pre-departure phase requirement, I read John Hedgecoe's Complete Photography Course; from this excellent resource I chose my photography techniques. The techniques I chose are portraits, architecture, travel--what suits my fancy at the time--and, capturing motion. From my assorted photos, three cohesive photo essays have will be constructed. (After organizing the hundreds of pictures--nearly 550 altogether.) Hopefully most people will get a sense of a link between the photos. The Three Techniques (3, III) * Portraits * Architecture * Travel Other Techniques (may be mixed in with main 3, especially travel) * Motion & Ghosting * Natural light: day and night * Juxtaposition * THEMES * Doors and Signs * Street life: cafes, shops, performances, socializing *
I have not included the end-notes, summaries, and some other papers in these photo essays because I think they would not be useful to read.
