For this final assignment in The Art of Photography, I am to imagine I am illustrating a story for a magazine. Although there is no requirement for text in the article, I have added captions to the images to link the images together.
For this assignment, I have chosen to use the story of 'a commodity', tracing the process of the manufacture of a table light, manufactured by the company I work for. I have mocked up a front cover of a fictional magazine using Adobe's InDesign and it is my intention to use the program to create the document for electronic submission as well as for printing out in the form of a magazine. Whether I am able to acheive this or not is another matter!
It was important for me to try and balance the form with the content in the images so although most of the images are clearly staged, I have tried to keep a relaxed and impromptu feel, to mirror the way the process actually works. There were a number of images which I felt were quite strong but which didn't quite fit into the flow and so I had to exclude these in order to meet the brief. This was actually quite difficult to do but was an important lesson in editing.
