The following are the ten shots I submitted from my collection.
|Ready for a Fight?|
My favourite shot taken during the course. This shot was taken by placing the cat on a sheet of glass and then photographing up from below. Fortunately the weather was glorious and the sky cloud free which gave me this brilliant blue backdrop. Halfway through the shooting the cat started to lick its paws and I managed to get this shot as a result.
|Storm in a Tea-cup|
|My Favourite Things|
|Last Slurp of Coke|
|Just 1% Away from Man|
Taken whilst on holiday in New York and is one of the main corridors of the New York Library. Was really hard to get the shot because flash photography was not allowed so I had to increase the shutter time. It was really busy and it needed several shots to get a break in the crowds long enough to have an empty corridor.
|Stamping on Liberty|
The final theme I chose was extreme perspective trickery. There is no photoshop modifications to this shot and that is the full sized statue of liberty in the background. The shot was taken with a wide angle lens from very low down and far away!
As a result of my photos and the exam I was given a Distinction for the course. Whilst I didn't real like I had learnt that much during the course it really made me broaden my horizons when considering subjects for shots. I love 'Ready for a Fight' and have it printed out and framed and it looks really impressive blown-up; makes you feel like a trapped mouse! :-)
