152 MC – Research

Research 

To widen my idea range I have been looking at work from different photographers and artists, I feel that by researching what is already out there I can have a good understanding to what makes images about human presence interesting.

I started off by researching the most famous artists and photographers so I could see what an audience enjoy the most.

[UNSET]

These artists/photographers have given me a good insight to what I could produce for classic imagery, I have learnt about their works in a deeper way relating to human presence.

I continued researching more artists and photographer as I wanted a huge bank of ideas and thoughts that I can trial and error. I feel that by researching this way it will help me to gather great ideas and thoughts.

I feel now that I have a wide bank of references to refer to for ideas and concepts, having this research completed has helped me to narrow my ideas down to particular ideas. I am now going to concentrate on 3 of my main ideas, develop them and see which idea has the best outcome to become my exhibition pieces.
