Ideal Home Show Final Photos

These are the photos that I have chosen to hand in.

I mainly chose the photos that had two people, apart from three photos that have a single person. The people who were at the show are couples, the women were looking at the product while the men were holding the bags and waiting.

In some of my photos there is movement (blurriness) because people just kept moving. The people who were selling products were consistently trying to get us to come to them and listen to what they have to say.

Ideal Home Show

For the Easter Holiday we were give a task to photograph an event. For my event I chose the Ideal Home Show. I’ve never been to the Ideal Home Show so I wasn’t sure on what to expect.

I took photos of the people who go to these events. When I got to the show, I noticed that it was mainly elderly couples, and parents with young children.

Overall I did find it quite hard to photograph this event. People were looking all over the place and walking around, I did find it slightly awkward to take photos because this show is about buying and looking at products. It reminded me of the Christmas task, The Winter Market.

Changes

For the Famous Person project, unfortunately there has to be changes. In my meeting I said that I have a YouTuber Steph that could be my famous person. Unfortunately she is unable to help me as she has unexpected family matters.

As I said in the meeting that she is a YouTuber, so I have decided to find another YouTuber that help me. I’m going to message so people today and hopefully I’ll get a response soon.

PhotoStory Research

For the next project in Location Photography, we are going to create our own photostories. Right now I still don’t have any idea on what I want to do.

I went onto Google and I found a website that’s based on PhotoStories.

http://www.photostoryproject.org/storiesland.html

About the website: ‘PhotoStory is a non-profit organization offering projects that teach photography, video and writing skills to people around the globe, focusing on women and children. By conducting participatory educational workshops, often in marginalized communities, Photostory promotes literacy, encourages creative expression, and nurtures self-esteem and empowerment.

PhotoStory work with individuals, local and international groups, non-governmental organizational, schools, and community learning centers to arrange individualized workshops taught and Deirdre Portnoy, Project Director.

During a workshop, the children and/ or women use simple cameras and journal writing to create their own photo storybook. We also share and discuss the photostories from past projects. The PhotoStory process enables individuals to visualize and express different aspects of their daily lives, and help communicate the collective experience of diverse groups and cultures.

In these challenging times, it is essential that we personalize our common human experience. The PhotoStory project contributes to multi-cultural exchange and dialogue by sharing these stories though international presentations, exhibits and the Internet.

Personal photo stories connect the global community and weave a vivid tapestry image-by-image, story-by-story, community-by-community – that challenges stereotypes and deepens empathy and understanding.’

 

I really liked the PhotoStory about India.

2nd – ‘We harvest mustard. We use the mustard oil to keep the children’s skin soft. We also use it for cooking. Fried food such as “poori” is always made with mustard oil.’
