Framing The World Through My Photographs
From my original idea based on dyslexia I was using idea which have a physical barrier element to the image wheather that be the kaliescope or 3d imaging, although these ideas werent particularly working I have decided to carry on the idea of the physical barrier by using cling film. This will create a physical barrier. I decided to write on the cling film a mixture of words and letters, this creates the barrier of words which represents struggles whilst reading.
I have made three attempts at this particular idea.
The first time I shot in my bedroom with one single light with a bed sheet acting as a diffuser.
The first shoot I did with this idea I only shot a few photographs as I felt I had one that would work.
I have cooled the tones down and cropped in the image.
When receiving feedback from peers on this image some felt that I may have been to made up. therefore i tried reshooting the images, where I was wearing the make up I would to uni.
This time I asked some peers to hold the cling film and almost pull it over me however I felt that this made it harder for me to create a ‘struggle’ as i felt no struggle.
I have also attempted to recreate this using perspex as I was unsure on the refelctions on the cling film.
Using the perspex really did not work as the image was far to flat.
After continuing to shoot this idea. i have gone back to the first shoot and re edit the image, i first liked.
I gathered some feedback from a friend who is dyslexic and didn’t know much about the project and when she first saw this she said that defines it for her too. meaning that I had achieved what I set out to do
