DONE MY SHOOT!
done my shoot today and i think it went really well. i got to covent garden at around 11am i went in and asked to speak to the stain manager. he was very short with me didn’t even give me his name! he asked how long i would be i said an hour or so. while i was there swell as shooting on the platform and in the station i wanted to get some shots of behind the scenecs in the ticket booths and control rooms. i asked the workers they said to speak to the supervisor so i did and he shot me down. he said nobody other than tfl workers are allowed in those rooms… apparently i pose a threat?! so i decided to try and get some more interesting shots within the satin itself. i loved the spiral staicase in the station with it s 193 steps which i walked up and down 3 or 4 times! all in all i think today went well slightly annoyed i couldn’t get into the ticket booths but working with what i could i think i done alright.
above is a picture of my covent garden pass.
‘Memory is very important, the memory of each photo taken, flowing at the same speed as the event. During the work, you have to be sure that you haven’t left any holes, that you’ve captured everything, because afterwards it will be too late.’ (Cartier-Bresson, 1997)
i am goin to shoot my final images this week. i have been rushed off my feet with work and the other two projects but they are all coming to a close soon and i plan to shoot my photojournalism this week. i have the permission from covent garden saying that i am able to shoot and i have shot my reccy so there is nothing left to do other than shoot my final shotS!
i have been emailing Guy again to sort a day to shoot. i have decided to choose covent garden as my stain to shoot and document and he is happy for me to do that all i need to do is let him know the day before i shoot so he can inform the station.
this is the kind of layout i want to recreate for one of my DPS. i like the way the smaller image helps support the story and gives the reader more insight. i think it is important within photojournalism to look at the layout of a magazine, and shed how the story is being told. i can imagine that if i were to shoot for a magazine i would want to be there in the layout decision for the magazine to try and tell my story slightly better.
i was trying out new layout ideas with my images from my reccy. it has given me ideas on what to shoot on my actual day of shooting. i plan to use circle picture boxes in my layout as i think it would fit in well with the underground story as it is all made up of tubes and there are a lot of spherical shapes in the underground.
