Week 2

Today Paul and a new lecturer called Richard Weston spoke with us today.

Photography- Harmony and Proportion- Discord and Imbalance

“You do not need to be a great photographer to take a great photograph”

This was proven when a site was opened where people would send in their own photographs and a few critics would tell them what was good and what was bad about it, however, someone as a joke entered the photo below, the critics told him it was blurry, grainy, and showed to much motion blur etc. When in fact this photo was taken by Henri Cartier-Bresson and recently sold for £265,000

Always wonder about a story in a photograph

Sometimes what you cant see in the photograph is what is important

“For me, the camera is a sketchbook, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity” – Alexander Rodchenko 1892-1956

Composition is always important

“make the ordinary , extraordinary” –

Richard Feynman

“i don’t know anything, but i do know that is interesting if you go into it deeply enough.”

James Webb- Young 1886-1973

Gather raw material

Set yourself mini tasks

Set colour schemes

Bird watching by Paula McCartney, i found very strange.

Paula ordered fake birds off ebay and tied them to trees, then took the photographs for the book about bird watching, to me that is cheating.
