Inspiration: This collection of three photographs were taken in my project focusing on documenting a place. I have documented the place Weymouth through the use of the colour medium format film. These images were taken using an old, plastic Lubital medium format camera and colour positive, I have then scanned these images in to the computer . I placed objects from the surrounding area inside the camera and then took the images mainly of the buildings. The shadow of the objects came up on the film which I wanted as I was trying to create a 3D look to the image showing the texture of the area and giving a more detailed view of the area. My main influences for these pieces of work have been Stephen Gill and Stephen Shore. Stephen Gill for his “outside in” project which I tried to use a similar technique to take my images and Stephen Shore for images where he looked at the streets and building as I found that this helped me with how to take the images of the building, where to position myself when taking the photograph and how to use the buildings to frames the images.
Title: Weymouth Harbour
Description: This photograph was taken across Weymouth Harbour looking at the rows of Georgian buildings. I have used the technique of putting objects in the Lubital Medium format camera to give a more in depth view of the area and showing the texture of the area around. The objects I have put in the camera are natural this is to show the contrast between the built up town and the beach/sea. I have used colour positive film for these three images as I was able to put the film over the top of the objects. The colours in the image are quite contrasting and natural which represents the surrounding area. The object hangs down from the top of the photograph framing the image and cutting it into sections. The objects also create a blurred effect in the corners framing the image like a frame would.
