I don’t often commit to blog ‘series’ here at DCITR but today I had a little idea and thought perhaps some of you would approve of said idea and would be interested in following along with it in a selection of blog posts over the next few months.
So what actually is the idea?
Well, it’s the start of the new school year and with a new year comes a new photography sketchbook (in my case anyway). This year I’ve been given a huge amount of freedom with what I base my photography project on, which although means I’m not held back by a specific theme, is also very daunting. So many blank pages and so many possibilities. I don’t quite know where to start.
I thought I would name this series ‘The Ambiguous Project’ because none of us know where this will end up, which direction I will take or how the project will change and evolve over time (…or how I will be graded – this is a school project let’s not forget!)
All I know right now is that my chosen starting theme is going to be Fashion Photography. Something I have very little experience in (yes I know this is supposed to be a somewhat fashion type blog but how often do I realistically upload outfit posts?) and is very difficult to pull off, but I wanted to challenge myself and focus on something I find interesting in my personal life outside sixth form.
Anyway, I won’t ramble on for too long. I just wanted to kick start this project today and share with you a little introduction before I delve in and probably destroy the first page.
The stage I’m at now is one of gaining inspiration and planning. A lot of Pinterest searching, a lot of googling ‘what even is fashion photography?’ and a lot of wondering how the heck I’m going to pull this off. All the while, being brave enough to (hopefully) document this on the internet for all to see my potentially awful attempts at fashion photography. Wish me luck.
