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