As part of Practice 2 we were given a word, this word was “Change” and we had to think about and consider what this word meant and how it could be applied into our current practice and our work at present.

When I thought about the word “Change” it made me think about the landscapes that I was photographing and how I was changing them with the use of digital software. I was taking shots of landscapes and transforming them into stereographic images. By doing this I was totally altering and changing the landscapes and the way that they would be observed and perceived by the viewer. Taking this into account I decided that I would be combining both the “Change” project with my ongoing practice as this seemed to make the most sense. As well as my stereographic images I have also been experimenting with the 360º landscapes and the slightly more abstract images that I posted on here on 24th April entitled “Patterns within the Landscape“.

Whilst thinking about “Change”, I’m very sure that my work will do just that over the next couple of months whilst I undertake some new experimentations with my photography and try to discover new ways to take and adapt my images.
