Make it a challenge to draw most or all of these. Use as inspiration to take photos of themselves with their phones. Draw onto tracing paper or acetate, try layering, continuous line, blind drawing, left hand etc to build portfolio
These sketchbook pages are part of the research and planning in an A Level Photography project exploring the theme â€˜Hidden Identityâ€™. The inclusion of test strips is beneficial (even in digital photography these can be produced, testing different contrast, lighting and colour filters that have been applied to an image); images are neatly trimmed and positioned on the pages. Articulate, well-reasoned annotation adds to the sharp, clean presentation style.
The black paper and vibrant colours in this Photography sketchbook result in a dramatic, eye catching layout. The pages almost take on a magazine-like quality, with large and small images integrated carefully within text.
This preparatory sheet shows the development of digitally manipulated compositions, drawing ideas from the photographers studied. The page includes screenshots and descriptions of Photoshop tools that have been used to merge images together. Michael also includes a gallery ‘mock-up’, showing how the his work would look if hung in a gallery exhibition space. This allows him to establish a sense of scale and show the work in context.
