This week, we were tasked with finding a professional photographer as an artist model. In the previous shoot, I wanted to further explore colour, whilst capturing photographs with a sense of emotional depth, otherwise what I would call ‘moments’. Ernst Haas was one of the first pioneering colour photographer that used his photography to document moments, whether abstract or structured, he is known for his sense of freedom within his images, and so I took photos with these keywords in mind; ‘Freedom, Abstract, Documenting, Colour and Capturing Moments.’ I tried using reflections of shapes and lights to create more abstract shapes, which proved interesting and hope to come across more opportunities to capture interesting reflections. I found Bokeh as the easiest medium to capture colour, which was why I was often taking wider aperture photographs within this shoot. The lamp-post shot I found very intriguing, as I initially thought I captured an emotional moment. Structurally, it had depth due to the wide aperture, blurring the hills and lights in the background. Also the lighting and darker blue hues against the faint yellow glow of the light served to create emotion, but rather I find that this photograph is more of a ‘none-moment’ as it doesn’t quite have an implied narrative nor much emotional depth, but simply a good mix of positioning, colour, lighting and depth is what makes this a beautiful image. In terms of the brief, I was particularly interested in colour as the change from an evergreen town to the grey, dreary and windy capital was rather important matter to me. Whilst in the day; Wellington can be as colour creative as a chess board, but as the day shifts to night, you really do start to see some life within the colour of Wellington.
