352mc Professional Photographic Practice: Editing down my images to the final ten
Sometimes I think that taking images is the easy part. It is the editing down that I find the most difficult. After numerous trips to Ukraine I now have what I would class as a large selection of ‘usable’ images. Images that I feel could make the final selection for my forthcoming exhibition.
I am intending to tell two peoples stories. Katya from Ukraine and Pete from Winchester. I have already selected one image for each subject, but I now need to select another four for each subject. This is going to be quite a hard task, as the images need to form a narrative. A narrative which tells the individuals story.
Once I get back to university next week I will bring in the selection of images and start the editing down process. This will take place in the main photography room on the magnetic wall and I plan to film this and create a time lapse video. I intend to use my lecturers and fellow students to help with the editing down process. I am also hoping to travel down to London to see my mentor Harry Hardie with a tight selection of images. Outside input and opinion is vital at this stage of the project.
