Task One

Task One: Street Photography

Set Thursday 28th April and to be brought to Thursday 5th May session. Please ensure all work is brought as ‘physical’ objects and put out for display on the tables ready for 0930 discussion.

i.) Using your working pinhole camera.

ii.) Consider a place which, when populated by certain individuals or groups of people, is transformed momentarily. It may be a public space where people convene or a private space where for instance; a liaison takes place between two lovers.

You will have little control of the light with your hand-made camera and so you will have to test and learn how it interprets the world. Through your testing you will begin to understand how the pinhole records an image and very quickly to project this vision onto your subject, before the negative is made. This understanding is what we refer to as pre-visualisation. It is especially important when working with such rudimentary equipment as (unless you make a more sophisticated version) your camera will have only one exposure in it.
