<p>PowerPoint Presentation</p> <p>Experimental Imagery inPhotographyname1</p> <p>2Case Study</p> <p>Case Study long exposure</p> <p>Long exposure is where an image is taken with a slow shutter speed. As a result of this bright objects in the scene will create brilliant lines and shapes, as a result of this the use of light with distort the subjects that are located in the frame. (particularly those that are bright or reflective) The perfect conditions for long exposure images when handling light is in a dark area. The main reason for this is that if you are handling lights during the day or in a bright room they will be washed out as a result of the ambient light, as a result of this a dark location will fix this issue resulting in a clearer and more vibrant image.</p> <p>One of the main reasons to why I have chosen this image is due to the fact that I like the use of light that have been manipulated with a long exposure, my main reason for liking this particular element I as the use of the exposure on this scene has made the main subjects (The carnival rides) seem alien as a result of the sweeping lines of light and form in the scene .Long exposure is both a contemporary and traditional style. One of the main reasons for this is due to the fact that this style was created in some of the earliest years of film. Despite this long exposure is also contemporary, one of the main reasons for this is that it is still used via digital photography with the same method of having a long shutter speed. </p> <p>This technique can be displayed on a wide range of different medias and in/on various locations (E.G. photo gallery's, social media, portfolio, gallery websites E.C.T.) One of the main reasons for this is as this technique can be created in both physical and digital photography medias, as a result of this long exposure is very flexible with how it can be utilized. </p> <p>You are to discuss a minimum of three experimental images produced using photography. Note the artist, and discuss the techniques they have used. Categorise the techniques as traditional or non-traditional and also as historical or contemporary. Discuss where the work might be displayed.3</p> <p>Case Study Tilt shiftTilt Shift (toy box effect) is a technique that is used in order change the perception of an image, this is done by blurring the top and the bottom of an image by the use of atilt shift lens. As a result of this your perception of an image can change thus making two dimensional images look 3D as displayed by the image below. But on the other hands images that are taken that are not of 2D scenes will create a toy box effect making the image look as if it was taken with miniature models.</p> <p>One of the main reasons why I have chosen this image is that John Maylon has used a painting instead of a real-life subject / scene. As a result of this the opposite effect has occurred, thus creating depth in the painting making the scene look real, to some extent.</p> <p>This effect can be considered as being both contemporary and traditional. One of the main reasons for this is as a result of this method of photography being used with both film and digital cameras, this is evident due to the fact that the main component of tilt shift is the use of a tilt shift lens, this attachment can be acquired for both digital and film cameras.</p> <p>Tilt shift work is likely to be displayed in a wide variety of different places, from social media to art gallery's. One of the main reasons to this is that tilt shift can be used in a wide verity of different scenarios is due to the fact that its </p> <p>You are to discuss a minimum of three experimental images produced using photography.

As a result of the recent advancements in technology new techniques of photography have been created, panoplanets is one example of this.</p> <p>This is one example of a method of non-traditional photography, one of the main reasons for this is due to the fact that this photographic technique is only possible with the use of external devices that are capable of running software that might be used in order to create panoplanets.</p> <p>The reason to why I have chosen this panoplanet in particular is due to the fact that Pierre Lesage has chosen to do a reverse panoplanet witch in practice is exactly the same as a normal panoplanet but simply inverted in order to create a wormhole effect. Lesage may have done this in order to </p> <p>You are to discuss a minimum of three experimental images produced using photography. Note the artist, and discuss the techniques they have used.

Minimum of 4 required. 6</p> <p>Technique #1 (Blur) </p> <p>Upon downloading my image to my D: drive via an SD card, I double clicked the image in order to open up camera raw 9.5 in Photoshop. One of the main reasons why I used this is due to the fact that it allows me to be able to quickly and effectively alter the colour and contrast in my images. One of the first things that I did was make the image greyscale, the reason to why I did this is due to the fact that I had the idea laid out that I wanted to give the illusion that the light could be the moon. After doing this I lowered the temperature in order to give it a blue hue. I then proceeded to increase the exposure of the image to create a glow. As a result of this the subject in the middle looked extremely pixilated compared to that of the original, to counteract this issue I altered between the sharpen and blur tool to fix my issue. I then converted my RAW file into a jpeg to that I could be utilised in more applications.OriginalEdit</p> <p>Use this slide to include a screen capture of the edit process. Before and during editing is preferable.Remember to annotate this slide.To screen capture on a mac, use CMD + SHIFT + 4 for a selection, or CMD + SHIFT + 3 for the full screen.7</p> <p>Technique #1 (Blur)</p> <p>One of the main strengths that I have accomplished with this image was the use of the manual focus. As a result of using it effectively I was able to focus the camera on a light, I then used a hand to create a silhouette effect. Personally the best feature of this image is the use of lowering the temperature of the image, this is due to the fact that I wanted to achieve a surreal look to my final image, by transforming the look of this image from a hand in front of a light to . As a result of using these different tools I can confidently say that I have achieved this.Although if I was to shoot this shot again I would have spent time in adjusting the focus of the camera. This is as a result of the hand having a slight glow around it, for example my completed image has a slight purple glow around the edges of the hand, this issue is a bi product of the camera not focusing on the hand correctly.If I had more time in post I would have attempted to have fixed the glow effect manually, in order to do this I would have used the sponge tool in order to remove the glow in order to make it monochrome instead fitting the theme more effecti--vely. As a result of the fact that the shadow has thisglow I feel that this image is not very atheisticallypleasing. Despite this point I feel like my image couldbe effective as a background / poster, this is as aresult of the fact that it has a very simplistic themethat could be used to convey the okay, emote Displayed at the centre of the image.</p> <p>Evaluate your image. - Discuss the strengths and weaknesses. How could you further develop the technique? Where could the image be seen and who is the appropriate audience? Is it aesthetically pleasing? Is the composition interesting?8</p> <p>Technique #2 (Reflection)</p> <p>Upon downloading my image to my D: drive via an SD card I double clicked the image in order to open up camera raw 9.5 in Photoshop. After opening the image I then proceeded to slightly decrease the saturation and increase the vibrancy of the image in order to make the colours stand out. After doing this I realised the darks were not very deep. As a result I increased the shadows in order to fix this issue. I then converted the RAW file to Jpeg so that It could be used for a wider range of applications.</p> <p>Edit</p> <p>Original</p> <p>Use this slide to include a screen capture of the edit process.

One of my main goals when I was creating this image </p> <p>Evaluate your image. - Discuss the strengths and weaknesses. How could you further develop the technique?

In the end I settled with removing all of the hues that were not red (when doing ending with the basic tools in RAW I had to max out the purple hues due to the final image as the image looked very harsh .</p> <p>HSL / greyscale (First edit)HSL / greyscale edit + basic (Final edit)</p> <p>Use this slide to include a screen capture of the edit process.

They proceeded by opening up photoshop and selecting the file menu, follow this up by moving your courser to automate and clicking on photomerge, after this a menu should pop up. Click on one of the following options in order to create your desired effect for your joiner images, I chose reposition as it created a more authentic look to my final image making it look like some one had manually placed the images together, opposed to the other options which make the images look more automated. After this click on the browse option located near the top right of the window, this will allow you to be able to select the images that you wish to be in your final product. Once you will have to wait for a few minuets, depending on how good your computer is this step will take from a few seconds up to an few hours depending on how many images you are using, how big they are and how good your pc is. This is as the pc needs to work out what goes where which is a rather demanding process, after this has finished, you should have your finished product.</p> <p>14</p> <p>Technique #4 (Hockney Joiner) </p> <p>After following the steps present in the last slide I did little in terms of alterations to the final image, I did move some of the images around making sure that that they did not line up correctly. I did this in order for the final piece to have a more fragmented look, apart from this there were very few steps that went into the post production. If I was to spend more time din post I would have make all of the image black and white, apart from the two signs. This is as it would convey a meaning of control to the final image making it very suitable for a punk rock album cover or the like.

To what extent or limitations does the technique have? 17</p> <p>Investigation #1 Glitch photographyGlitch photography is a very stylised genre of photography which has many different stylistic components that you can incorporate into your images. One of the main reasons that makes glitch photography such a popular method is as there is no specific settings / lens that you need in order to create any content that fits with-in this technique.As a result of this the full capability's of Photoshop are at your disposal, some common examples of effects that are used include separating the CYMK / RGB layers on an image in order to create a basic glitch effect. As well the use of the distortion tools that are available in photoshop (E.G. Sheer). These tools allow the user to be able to create more expressive with their content.</p> <p>Some examples of different real world applications for this style of photography include posters, covers (E.G. magazines, music, film, video games) and advertisement purposes. One of the main reasons to why this style has such a wide variety of different uses is due to the wide range of different styles that fit under this category, as a result you can use post processing in order to manipulate your images to a near infinite number of outcomes.</p> <p>Due to the fact that glitch art is a relatively new genre of experimental photography there have not been many examples of uses of this style. Despite this there have been numerous new and rising sub genres of music that have started using this style for album art. Some particular examples include that of Synth wave and vapourwave.</p> <p>You are to investigate into a different experimental technique.Gather a range of...</p>
