Photography Assignment

Sunday, February 6th, 2011

Here are the final 10 photos I submitted for my first photography assignment. We had covered virtually no material prior to doing this assignment, so I was really just shooting based on prior knowledge. This was narrowed down from over 130 photos, covering over 30 different concepts. For the final 10 photos, each one is from a different concept.

To make this a little more interesting, I’m not posting the concepts yet. If you want, try to guess the topic for each image. I’ll reveal the actual concepts in a future post.

UPDATE: Here is the full list of concepts. Each of the shots represents one of these.

  • America
  • Betrayal
  • Coming of Age
  • Confinement
  • Death
  • Dichotomy
  • Family Portrait
  • Gender
  • Humor
  • Idealism
  • Identity
  • Intrusion
  • Lie with a photograph
  • Man/Woman vs. Himself/Herself
  • Man/Woman vs. Man/Woman
  • Man/Woman vs. Nature
  • Man/Woman vs. Society
  • Misfortune
  • Old age
  • Politics
  • Propaganda
  • Race
  • Religion
  • Sex/Sexuality
  • Shoot from someone (or something) else’s perspective
  • Social Criticism
  • Stereotypes
  • Tell a narrative story
  • Terror
  • The landscape
  • Truth or Dare
  • Use the camera to look where you can not see
  • Youth

    Sort of difficult to read without knowing what concepts you were “shooting” for.
    I’m guessing this was not your basic, line, contour, texture, lighting, etc. type thing.
    I like 6, 8, and 9.

  2. Pondero Says:

    I could think of multiple “concepts” for each of them. Maybe if you gave us the list, and ask us to put them in order, we’d have a better chance of success.

    I like number 1. I’m an aged and texture guy.

  3. Jeremy Says:

    Interested to learn more!

  4. Bill Lambert Says:

    That’s my dog in #4! Well, it looks just like him.

    I really like #1, could it be an old Mexican restaurant?

    Does, uh, Sarah know about, uh, #10?

  5. Tim Says:

    1, 8, (and 10) are quite nice. Quite.

  6. John Romeo Alpha Says:

    Try I must:

    1. dichotomy
    2. old age
    3. religion
    4. confinement, or death
    5. the landscape
    6. tell a narrative story
    7. family portrait
    8. Shoot from someone (or something) else’s perspective
    9. coming of age
    10. gender
