Creative response tutorial…
Does photo manipulation manipulate people or does it give them what they want?
– It’s cute , Alice liked the way in which I was giving something to someone.
– It’s the last year
– Very personal project and personal for everybody involved.
– The typography matches the people that it represents
– The packaging is very personal
– The photography looks very professional.
– Almost feels like the group should send a message back on the postcard.
– Type of photography: Neat and clean and quiet commercial, the fork bracelet doesn’t really go with the rest as the others go into the studio.
– Bracelet is much more abstract than the rest of the imagery.
Question that I asked:
Does the work actually work:
– Yes the work works when you read the back of the postcards and also the images are relevant.
Does the photography seem cold in comparison to the emotional explanation background?
– If you just put this photo’s down it seems like a stock image.
– Document the people with their packet.
– Peers picked up on the fact that it was a collective thing/ project.
– Photography has gone in the direction of stock photography rather than advertising imagery. It would be better if there was something more to it, maybe to further improve by re-shooting eg. the jumper with a ‘buff’ model wearing it, then ask the participants whether they would still feel the same way towards to the products as they do now?
