Exercise: An Organised Event

Finding organised outdoor events early in the year, and particularly this year when it’s been very cold isn’t that easy, so I decided to have a look back into my archive at something I did last year where the brief was very similar but the images I made didn’t fit.  Hey presto, they do fit this brief and as the exercise is really to prove that you understand the processes involved in this kind of photography I decided to use them rather than wait weeks for another suitable opportunity this year.

Having said that, a few days later an opportunity arose to attend a car-boot sale and I caught some really surprising images.

Move toward shooting situations in which there is a more definite focus, in preparation for dealing with ‘place’ and its relationship to people and use.  In this final exercise you should begin to think of explaining through photographs, in addition to photographing people in telling moments, each one unique and self-contained, consider how a series of images might build up into telling a story, so that a set of images to some extent explains what is going on in a situation or at an event.

There’s a little story going on here I think, the collection starts with three shots of the set-up for the event, then four shots of the crowd build-up just prior to the event, which was held at night.

This was the first boot sale of the season for this venue and I think because of that there were sufficient crowds to make it easier to obtain some really good character shots.
