Picturing the Body: Final Proposal
After completing all of the tasks set before me the time has now come for me to create a final unique piece. I have taken on board all of the information which I have learnt in the previous weeks from the tasks set. It was not an easy choice. Although I loved the use of muted colours in the woods my ideas had fluctuated between portraits and body shots. However, I have decided to produce a close up of a body part. This piece will fall more into the artistic category rather than an image with a deeper sense of narrative. It is also an area which I have not previously explored so it will be challenging in that respect.
The final will be shot using medium format film in black and white. I intend to print the final piece on 16×12 fibre based paper. I want to develop and print the image at home using a home made darkroom. I am using this method to add a more personal touch to the whole image making process and to show a certain degree of technical skill. The print will then be professionally mounted by a local company who have been mounting images for over 100 years.
