Challenge 4: Creative Image

Task 1: Pre-Production

For this assignment we did some creative thinking as a group. We were given 2 words: “Stone” and “Camera”, which we were supposed to combine creatively somehow. We all thought of a good amount of ideas, the dominant one being a camera within  a stone or something similar, and this is what I personally chose.

Task 2: Implementation

I used Google to find a suitable photo of a rock/stone, and then searched for a photo of a lens for me to combine the 2 eventually. You can see below the simple process of what I did, and the end result below.

Task 3: Evaluation

I think overall it could have been more creative and had more work put into it, but i think 2 boring subjects like “Camera” and “Stone” are a hard subject to create something from, and don’t exactly whip up interesting ideas. I think I could have been alot more creative on this task and maybe got into it a bit more, as when we were generating ideas I wasn’t really in a creative mood and I didn’t put as much effort in as I could have. I do think with a different combination of subjects I could have made something more interesting.


Challenge 4: Common Photograph

This challenge was to take photographs of a specific area, our workspace at college, and present the images creatively. Everyone had different ways of doing this so there were mixed results. Some people just moved physical objects into the shot to make it different, others like myself used image editing to put together multiple images and manipulate the images aswell.

I decided to do this as the classroom and Mac computers are really rather dull, and the room and area lacks colour. So I thought i’d add it myself.

This is the first idea I implemented. It simply involved copying and pasting the image on a new layer, making it fit the original layers screen, and repeating that. I thought this idea was still dull so I decided on photographing the area and editing them together.

So for my second idea I took the various photos i’d taken, and arranged them on a black, blank canvas. I chopped the images up into segments, and changed the hue and brightness of different segments. I did this as I thought it added colour to the images and also it was something different to the normal thing to do.
