Week Eight

Shot for about four/five hours in Dungeness

Shoot went really well, I found that visiting somewhere like Dungeness on a warm sunny day makes all the difference to the images, compared to the last trip I made there at the end of February when it was -7 degrees and I could hardly feel my fingers, let alone press the shutter!
I think I definetly produced images that fit my brief, and I can see finals coming together.

I shot images both in digital, and on film.

I used the Multiple Exposure function on my camera, and in between exposure I turned the camera either upside down or I turned towards an empty piece of land.
This has created a sort of ghosting effect, the shots of the power station look as if they are fading into what they could have been without the building having been there, I feel these images really fulfil my Urban Flux brief as the image has captured a change.

After seeing how well the film double exposures worked I think I will re edit some of these images and combine them in photoshop with another to further recreate this ‘ghostly’ effect

Also reshot my first shoot, and documented the tarmac factory, however there was a large fence which meant part of the factory is obscured and I couldn’t get very close as the security guard shook his head at me, and from the other side the factory is obscured by a large office building so that did not really go how I wanted however the reshoots were much better.

I like the way that the nature has been fenced off, like the buildings in the background need protection from nature

this is a lot sharper than my first shoot however it does not have the same impact as the image has too much depth, perhaps a re-edit is in order here to bring back some depth...black and white adjustment perhaps?
