Critique 3:

| No Comments

Throughout the week, I have been focusing my energy on attempting to decide what different textures I could take pictures of. In the last class critique I thought about doing more normal everyday textures and printing them on canvas, which in turn would give it a more abstract and unique look. Which in turn, would make the textures new to the viewer. Although I still enjoy this idea, I am thinking about taking it one step further and using more unique and abstract textures to begin with. This will further my concept of texture with abstraction.

I have the opportunity to go home this weekend, and intend to do the majority of my shooting there and will then update with my final, edited images!

Critique 2:

| No Comments

In order to prepare for this critique, I went out in Duluth and searched for houses or buildings that have unique and interesting textures on them. Upon finding a house that I found to be interesting, I took a variety of pictures of different distances and from different angles, then I went in Photoshop and selected three different distances that I liked the best, and the best photograph from each distance. I then changed them all into black and white, and then altered the tones of the blacks and whites, until it had the contrast I desired. I plan to create a moch-up of what I want it to be laid out as.

Critique 1:


During the first critique I received a lot of constructive criticism, and further expanded my idea. After showing some photographs of just close up textures, the resounding feedback was that they would like to see different view points of the texture. So what I decided to do was too re-shoot some photographs and start with the entire building, and then zoom in a bit and show only 4 or so feet of the building, and then zoom in one more time and show just the texture. In this sense it adds more interest to the building and the texture itself. I plan on re-shooting this weekend, that way I have pictures for all three sets of images.
