After our initial session of finding the colour blue around college and documenting it with photography, in the second session we were to go out into the environment and develop this further. I decided to focus on close ups but still keep with the general theme of blue.

Collection 100. Photography

We were asked to take a range of photographs which fit touch upon five different catergories, people, places, textures, words and objects. We were to record and observe different senarios and findings aroun us. These are just some of the images I taken and collected over time.

Visual Lanaguage- Photography

In this session we were given a certain object or colour to identify around the college and document as many as we could find in pairs. Our given thing was the colour blue. We decided to take close up shots of the things we found, we found a lot of posters used blues to advertise and promote things with white or black text as they work well together.

No News iS Good News- Mail Shot

Following the poster brief we were to take the same theme and research and apply it to produce 10 mail shots with a suitable mailing list relevant to the contents of the mail shot. I wanted to make mine quite interactive and included a small jigsaw inside containing important facts on child abuse.

No News Is Good News- Posters

After researching into a chosen topic the next brief was to produce three high impact posters, one image only, one text only and the last text and image all representing one fact about our chosen topics.

My topic was child abuse and I based my work around the fact, 'One quarter of children experienced one or more forms of physical violence during childhood.' Using this, I wanted to focus on the 'one quarter' and came up with the idea of cakes and slices of cake to represent one quarter.

These are my initial ideas but after being given feedback I realised they were far too extreme and didn't need to be so harsh.

With the blood and the knife the image was far too much, i then re-took the photographs without these and rearranged the image only poster.
