The beginning of my Photography domain.
I plan to shoot the last week of March, all week. In order to shoot my photographs for my piece, I will be needing models/participants. I plan to use a range of people that I choose to photograph in my project, that will range from; people that respond to my flyers/posters, friends from back home (Grantham) and also family. Reason for me having a mix of these different people are that it will give me the opportunity to work with a variety of different people, some I know and some that I don’t. Also with regards to using family members, these are some that carry the beliefs I am representing in my photos, also it gives my project that personal affect by using people that are closest to me, putting myself into my own work, like artist Vivian Mayer.
The week before I decided to shoot in the Universities T.V Studio, I put up posters around the Ellen Terry Building, in hoping for responses. I managed to acquire two responses from the poster and even with just two I was happy.
By the end of the week prior to the shoot, I had acquired all of the participants needed for my project as follows;
Each of which have a shadow of what appears as a representation from the responses I have gained on the beliefs and opinions on what happens after death. These have been demised by both my primary and secondary research.
