Task 3 For Task 3 I chose to work on the task set by Nadav Kander, which involved learning the difference between a travel snapshot and a created landscape Step 1: Complete the Assignment                       Step 2: Critical Rationale For this task set by Nadav Kander, we had to explore how we capture a landscape and the difference between a travel photo and a landscape, the difference being the creation of a landscape whereas the simple taking of a travel snapshot. For this series of images, I had to think … Continue reading

Step 1 Step 2 This series of images respond to Kander’s task set, questioning what makes a landscape and what makes a travel snapshot? Traveling to Canada I explored this through taking my time to compose each individual image, featuring different elements within the set of photographs. Key elements are used such as focus points to draw viewers into the frames, grabbing their attention; these consisting of a whale’s tail, a boat and the sun rise. Features are emphasised in all frames using the rule of thirds, whether this be basing the main focus point or even the horizon on … Continue reading

Step 1: Step 2: Critical Rationale 20 – 21 April 2018 is a body of work created in response to Nadav’s Kander assignment Making, Not Taking. This body of work can easily confuse the audience, giving them the choice to choose if the photos are travel snapshots or a landscape. 20 – 21 April 2018 both consists of landscapes and snapshots captured by me, documenting my friend’s trip to the UK. Snapshots and landscapes are all mixed up within the book allowing the audience’s mind to travel within the book. This assignment was both focused on playing with the lighting … Continue reading

Step One. Follow the steps of the assignment, interpreting and adapting as needed, focusing on the elements of visual language Step Two. Critical Rationale Nadav Kander’s task emphasises on the process of making, not taking and the validity of a photograph. I chose to take on this assignment as I was interested to see the results that followed when capturing a subject matter that I do not usually photograph. When it came to conducting the photo-shoot I took the measures to make sure that I was fully immersed in the task, with no rush in getting the pictures completed. I wanted … Continue reading

Task 3.2 This interaction can be through composition, intervention in the scene in front of you, post-editing etc. Only your fantasy is your limit. — Anja Paixão (@AnjaPaixao) 2 May 2018   Step 1: Complete the assignment Step 2: Critical rationale Nadav Kander’s assignment focuses on the difference between a landscape image and a travel snapshot. Kander originally directed this assignment towards photography and asked us to create a series of images. Instead, I adapted the assignment and made a video with still images. When I photographed my images and recorded my video, it was not planned, nor an idea … Continue reading

Task 3 Step 1-Complete the assignment Step 2-Critical rational The task I chose to do is about being selective, about making conscious decisions about what you are showing in the photograph, hence the line” Making, not taking”. I chose this task because for as long as I have been making I have been a huge fan of making landscape images and this task allowed me to reconnect with my photographic beginnings. The images I’m showing have been chosen for several reasons. The first reason I chose these images is because they were made in 2016 while I was making a … Continue reading

Task 3 : Making, Not Taking Step 1 : Completing the assignment Video – Step 2 : Critical analysis The body of work I have created in response to Nadav Kander’s ‘Making, Not Taking’ task is a book titled ‘The View’.  The name of the work is a play on words, due to view having many meanings; the point of view from the audience, is it a landscape image or a travel snapshot? Also the view that is seen within the photographs, taken by me, the photographer. ‘The View’ uses a combination of both travel snapshots and landscape images, but I … Continue reading

TASK 3     Completed assignment as a physical zine Critical Rationale For my response to the Nadav Kander assignment I decided to create a zine consisting of photographs taken in the process of discovering a new city or a new part of it. With most of the photos taken in April, the story leads through Coventry, Birmingham, London and Brighton. I found an interesting idea to explore; the fact that I focus much more on the details when photographing still life when compared to my portraiture of fashion based photography. The thought process behind this is to notice details … Continue reading

TASK THREE: MAKING WORKSHOP   STEP ONE: Choose one of the assignments. Follow the steps of the assignment. Making, Not Taking   STEP TWO: Critical rationale I found Kander’s practice really inspirational. When I first read it, I tried to think about how certain landscapes have influenced my life. Some sad and happy memories have the shape of a landscape in my head and though I didn’t take a picture of them with a camera, I took it with my eyes and heart and it’s like a vivid photograph in my memory. We don’t really stop and immortalize those moments with … Continue reading
