This lesson we focused on John Bladessari and his photo Wrong. And discussed how it was wrong and if a photo can be wrong but right at the same time. Very confusing stuff. We also watched a video on his art work and his life. The video is inserted here >>
I enjoyed the task as it was fun but confusing too.
In this task we went out and took photos that deliberately broke the photography 'rules'. The 'rules' we choose to break were;
-see subjects face clearly
-make sure subjects in focus
-nothing should cover the lens
-don't stand to close or far away from subject
-don't crop out subject
-make sure brightness and contrast are right
-have right settings on camera
-keep camera still and steady
-don't distract attention from subject
-use flash in dark places
-hold camera straight
-don't put subject in front of other things incase they blend
The end results are very interesting to look at because they don't follow the 'rules' they are definitely not the best photos but there definitely not boring either.
I think the photo that is the most 'wrong' is the number 1 to the side as it broke a lot of photography rules and the image is distort and you cannot make out what it is witch makes it wrong according to the rule i choose, However my favourite photo is number 2 as it has distort and still subjects witch adds a nice effect. My least favourite is number 3 as its very boring and plain and it didn't break any photography rules either. Another one i think works well is number 4 was it breaks photography rules but also looks interesting.
