Thinking Outside the Box
The phrase Thinking Outside the Box means outside or beyond normal or conventional thinking. For this project, you will be thinking outside the box by exploring a box of mysterious and surprising objects, which will inspire the invention of an imaginative narrative photograph.
All objects have a purpose, some even have a past and others often have familiar associations. This makes objects great at lending themselves to function as lead characters in the creation of a narrative photograph. Objects can form connections with each other to create new stories. This mysterious box of objects will prompt you to imagine and recount photographically a story you have conjured about a stranger and you will be using objects to convey meaning and create new narratives.
You can choose to start this project in July, September, January or April.
You will be given a project start date and a project end date.
You will have 10 weeks of mentor support to complete your project.
Inspired by the box of objects, you create a narrative image and transform the objects. You will plan, capture and edit these images.
With the support of a professional photographer, you will explore and develop skills that are required for this field of photography, from the creative direction of a shoot to stylistic considerations such as lighting, composition and editing.
