Photography- Week 2

In the session, we were given a task and 1 hour to go out and take three images of a certain subject, mine being taxi drivers. Whilst out, I asked the three subjects if they could pose for a photograph.

This is one of the images I ended up with:
Taxi Driver 1

We also went through more of the history of photography, including photographers such as Bert Hardy, who took photographs of the Chinese community in Liverpool, post-war Britain, and the Korean War; Eve Arnold, who photographed Marilyn Monroe and Mongolia; and Peter Menzel and Faith D’Auisio, who took pictures of families and food from different countries.

Photo essay: narrative, events, emotions, and concepts.

Structure: establishing shot, full figure shot, medium shot, close up, text, action, narrative detail.
