TMI PHOTOGRAPHY I Project 3: In The Style Of, Part II
For Part II of your project, you will make photographs in the style/manner of your chosen photographic artist that you researched in Part I. Now that you’ve familiarized yourself with your artists' work, you can choose to focus on their overall style, or on just a specific project or period in their artwork.
This is NOT about recreating or exactly copying a photograph. You may choose to photograph your own subject matter or a similar subject matter that your artist works in. Borrow the style or method from the photographer and then make it your own-- create your own content!
The first step is to recognize the style of your photographer. Some questions to consider when thinking about what is specific about their style:
Is there a distinctive visual quality that is seen throughout their work?
What subject matter does your photographer focus on?
How do they go about photographing their subject? Do they "shoot from the hip" or set up their shots meticulously with a tripod?
Do they work with a certain kind of camera or process? Black and white or color?
