Photography, Year 2

My Component 1 explored the theme of home and what makes up a home. I looked at various aspects of a home; the local area, objects within the home and the people who live there. Throughout my project I employed the use of colour and saturation in order to convey emotions to the viewer. I worked predominantly with lightroom and Photoshop in order to do this but I also incorporated the use of physical manipulation in the form of collages. My use of collages was to link different aspects of the home together and to hopefully explain how in order to make up a home all aspects need to be in harmony.

My final piece was a collage of all my images I had taken during the project displayed on a model of my own personal home. By doing this I hoped to fully show the home is made up of hundreds of different aspects.
