Temporal Expression was the next project we got and the given theme was “cycle”. In the task we had various things to do and these were the following tasks:
Create a joint image which was inspired by David Hockney
- Produce creative photographic images that show long exposure shots through light painting or sit-scan
- Produce photographic images that show short exposures
Featured below are some David Hockney inspired joined photos taken from http://www.hockneypictures.com
The concept behind this idea allows the viewer to have our own idea on space as one of Hockney’s interests were working with time and space. Hockney’s stitched photos had different views, some were really aligned and some were just placed to make the photo look unique. When doing my photographs i’ll need to experiment with placement and also refer the photos to the theme of cycle.
Here are some examples of long exposed shots (from google):
Both light and movement are key aspects to long exposure shots and there are different many ways to take them. I will be trying to use any light and movement within my photos as I feel they are most effective for long exposures.
Here are some examples of short exposures (from google):
Short exposure shots are taken with a fast shutter speed which captures an moving object at the moment. The images are taken at the exact time as the shutter speed is just like a blink, it freezes time. This can make a photograph interesting. I will something quite extreme and capture the right moment.
