This was a little snippet of the backstreets of the shopping centre but it offered a clue as to why I saw fit to photograph it: there was signs that a ‘Street Feast’ took place from time to time in the vicinity on the opposite side of the road. I included a person walking in the frame to draw further attention to these buildings and signs of physical use value. However, it could also be inferred from the photograph that the person way on their way to the shopping centre. Also evident was a tall structure in the distance which I felt added some context to the scene; anybody quire familiar with the area would probably recognise the structure and so this feature of the landscape being present in the frame fit my target audience well. The street itself was pretty colourful for a shopping centre’s backstreet and I felt it offered an insight into the personality of the area and what might take place later during certain days…
Camera settings for Photograph 16 – Assignment 5 were:
f/8, 1/800s, ISO 100, focal length 48mm. Handheld.
Photograph 16b – Assignment 5 was actually probably the only shot where there were more notable features in the landscape which corresponded with Photograph 16 – Assignment 5 to make it arguably more interesting and characterful than its daytime counterpart! I had a good idea this would be the case and arrived at a time when this vibrancy was most obvious. This was when the ‘Street Feast’ actually took place, and the entrance to the vicinity for the ‘Street Feast’ was full of people milling to get in. The tall structure was also lit up at night adding extra interest to this already vibrant scene in comparison to the daytime photograph. Lastly, there was the human intervention of bikes now lined up outside the entrance to the ‘Street Feast’, presumably those of ‘Street Feast’ goers, which had been lacking also in the daytime shot.
Camera settings for Photograph 16b – Assignment 5 were:
f/13, 25 seconds, ISO 100, focal length 46mm. A tripod and cable release were used.
