I am happy and confident that I have met the criteria for this third assignment which was to put in to practice what I had learned through my research in order to create a self-portraiture project. I believe that I have been able to create all the submitted images to both include me and to be about me, in context to the narrative, as provided by my friends and family.
I have found this project extremely challenging, the hardest part was finding the ideas for suitable images that could metaphorically represent my chosen subjects as clearly as possible. However, I also found it very enjoyable as well as a little stressful. The planning took a great deal longer than I had originally imagined.
Trying to take a photo whilst not being behind the camera was also fraught with difficulties. I invested in a piece software by Nikon (Camera Control Pro 2, available on a free 30 day trial from the Nikon website) in order to operate the camera remotely through a tethered lap-top but even with this added aid the task was still trick trying to keep the subject in focus.
I feel reasonably happy with my final presented work and I hope that my Tutor likes it.
