I’m not sure I’m allowed to repost the photos I’m referring to, but they all appear on this page, for those doing the course:
I really like Jill Maynards “Selfie”. The silhouette and the blue cast make for an intriguing selfie. I’m just not sure what she’s holding in her hand, and I want to know. But maybe that’s part of its appeal?
I want to experiment with silhouette.
Jessica Bishop’s selfie is unique and abstract. She explains that it’s a reflection in a fast moving train, but she hasn’t been able to recreate it. I’d like to experiment with shutter speed and motion to see if I can get a similar effect. (Honestly I probably don’t have the skills though!)
I also like the shadow idea (Jessica Bishop and Rosemary James). I too am fairly camera shy, and both photos tell something about the person’s interest. I never considered how much a shadow can convey. So I’ll try a few of those too.
Lastly I like Craig Vertigan’s cropped selfie, and his concept of a photo that is recognisable to those who know him, but only shows a part of his face. I hope to try some close-ups and create some interest with cropping.
I’ll update this page with a link to my attempts at a later date.
