My idea for assignment two is beginning to take shape. I didn’t get an opportunity to take any practise ‘crowd’ photos on Remembrance Sunday but I have planned to take pictures for my assignment over several events. I will be visiting the Christmas Dickens Festival in Rochester, Hopefully the Santa in the City Fun Run and Santa Con, I can see a theme taking shape. I am hoping to focus on people in Santa hats but I would also like to find an opportunity to shoot an image that contrasts with the Christmas ‘ideal’, I have a small seed of an idea in which I would like to contrast Christmas joy and revellers against the homeless at Christmas but as I do not which to stage this I will have to hope I can find the opportunity.
I am also considering how I might present this work. I was considering the commercialism of Christmas and whether to present my work as a chocolate advent calendar or Christmas cards or some other type of Christmas creation, I think I will need to see what images I choose to see how this idea works.
