Critical Review-Journal

  • “What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”
    — Karl Lagerfeld

I have started to think about which direction I would like to take my studies and my research project. I have not committed myself at this time but a few topics I have considered have sparked an interest. There are many aspects of photography to consider and I want to base my research on what interests me the most. So where do I start??

Start with what you know and research:

Questions, what do I know? What do I enjoy about photography? What others photographers do I find inspirational? What will challenge me but also keep me interested? When I was studying my BA (Hons) I would start by looking at other works related to the chosen topic. I think this is a good starting point and wonder how could I do something different that hasn’t been done before. My passions, my family, floral, macro, light, nature, art, colour,  black and white.

The best place to start would be with what I have learned so far and how to take it and make it into something unique. I hope this will leads me on to further insight into my idea. Time to brainstorm……. Ideas so far.

  1. Is photography an art or a craft?
  2. How have women influenced photography from both sides of the lens?
  3. The effect of lighting in the photography.
  4. How to produce the best photography – angles, and approaches.
  5. Photography verses painting – emphasizing the natural aspect of the view.
  6. How has macro photography evolved in the world?
  7. What is the importance of nature photography?
  8. How can photography be used to educate people who have a negative attitude towards nature?

Input very welcome.
