- Edits can be fluid and change between a magazine and portfolio
- 5 picture stories don't have to be shot at the same time, it's more about a theme than going to one place to do a shoot on one day
- Think more about cropping! Use pieces of card to make it easier to see the cropped image without being distracted from the outside of the crop
- Dodging and burning on the Predannack pictures should be done to get more detail from the sky and inside the plane. But also keep the contrast in that interior image
- Better shapes in the detail shot of the controls of the plane than the seating. The shapes work well with those created by the watch tower as well
- Interesting discussion also about how we are now thinking about our series of images in terms of an editorial workspace which is fine, but also your edit and eye for shooting for a magazine will be different than a long term documentary project for example. You don't need to think about double page spreads and space for text for example
For this crit I brought some of the Predannack photographs I was still deciding between and through discussing my images with the group I have come to an edit of five photographs for my five picture story. Here are my final five photographs with their captions.
To produce my captions I asked lots of questions on the tour and did some research online to find out more about the history of the site. I formulated the order for my series by writing the captions as they began to tell a story about Predannack from the beginning of its history towards what it is used for today. Overall I feel that considering this is my first serious use of film photography that there is a consistency to my images and that they are visually effective in illustrating my chosen subject matter. The photographs allow you to see that today Predannack is a much quieter expanse of land however still is in use and has a great deal of history.
