Exercise 2.2 – Thoughts

Following on from the exercise here I discussed my thoughts on how I was overthinking my photography and in that respect losing the spontaneity, the fun if you will. To recapture that feeling once more I took my iPhone to the local hall and small vegetable garden to inject that spontaneity again, to take photos purely for enjoyment (whilst I appreciate this is a degree level course this was purely to reinstate my love of photography.

I created a collage of my time there in a photobook layout. While I was shooting I could feel that strong love of photography being re kindled, I was searching for the little things and planning compositions in my mind and allowing my thoughts and photos to lead me down new pathways both literal and figurative.

Catherine Banks, a friend and fellow student commented “I think it’s a pretty general problem with students studying photography that they become more self-conscious. It’s part of the process and finding ways to make it ‘fun’ is key I think.” It made me feel quite a bit better that I wasn’t alone in this doubt, and perhaps it is a positive thing as I am questioning my photography more so as to explore more avenues within this degree.
