initial designs

To show the good side of humanity I need to create images that show adventure and passion for discovery. For this ill have to images of art, travel, extreme sport, possibly climbing, bmx, skating and other sports. I will try and show human beings pushing them selves to achieve new things and experience the joy of doing it.

To show the bad side of humanity I want to photograph the contrast between the rich and the poor. By this I hope to highlight the problems by showing that there is a lot of materialism in our society that without it could help to put an end to poverty and homelessness. I would also like to show cruelty towards beings for our own pleasure. This could be the fur trade. How we butcher animals so pointlessly in order to have a piece of clothing we could do without.

My adventure and curiosity humanity photos:

DSC_0024

This man shows humanity and curiosity as the person is walking through the park in the snow. There is probably another route for him to take but he was curious enough to take the route through the park. When I was taking the photo I was wondering what pushed him to take this route over others?

This photo shows the expansion of humans and the variation in creativity with the different style of buildings.

DSC_0029-2

This is a picture I took from The Empire State Building at sunset. I took the shot because I found the sky and the lights interesting. The lights symbolise humanity as they come on as the sunsets using the sun as a natural clock.

DSC_0040-2

I took this shot to show people on their journey. The buildings also add leading lines and draws your eyes down the street.

DSC_0057

I took this photo as it shows humans just getting on with their life. And also a person carrying a bag of rubbish which is a by product of human beings.

DSC_0067

I took this shot to show curiosity as most of the people in this shot would have been commuting to work and are curious about what their out come may be if they earn enough money.

DSC_0059-2

I took this photo as the light was soft as it was morning. I wanted to show high contrast by shooting the shot in the shadows to get the contrast with the light. The people add to the shot as it shows them just going by through their life.

DSC_0065

I took this photo as I found the light beautiful and the people interesting. This shows a curious side to humanity as I took the photo because I was interested in capturing the scene and seeing it again and again.

I photographed these signs to show adventure as you have a choice to choose a path and direction to take and explore.

DSC_0044-2

I took this picture to show adventure as it is a rider riding a man made dirt jump crafter out of the soil. I took the picture is this drawn back style to show the surroundings and the rider.

DSC_0025-2

This picture shows dirt jumps made out of soil by riders. It represents curiosity as once built they are needed to be ridden. The image shows both the jumps and rider.

DSC_0041-2

This image shows curiosity as there are the hand crafter jumps with the rider. The rider doesnt have to ride them but he is curious to what it would be like to do so.

DSC_0029-2

I took the image is this style to show the jumps, the rider and the surrounding area. This shows how people have been curious enough to want to explore the possibilities of making new things. Although I like the composition of this image, i don’t like how the rider is hard to see against the dark tree.

DSC_0038

This image shows the rider, the jumps and the surroundings. He is exploring the jumps by riding them.

DSC_0023

This image shows the landscape in which the jumps are built into with someone riding them.

DSC_0002

This image shows the rider exploring the dirt jump by trying new things over it. I think this image is shot to close up and doesnt show enough of the surroundings.

DSC_0001-2-2

I took this picture of my bike to show adventure and curiosity as the bike can be used for travel and tricks. Using it for this shows curiosity as it shows desire to experience new things.

DSC_0003

I took the photo in this style to give a point of view of riding a skateboard.I used a slow shutter to show speed.

DSC_0008

I took the photo in this style to give a point of view of riding a skateboard. I used a slow shutter to show speed.

This photo shows adventure as it is taken in a location that isn't often explored by people not in the building profession. I included the legs into the shot to personify the photo and to give scale.

DSC_0008

I took this photo to represent adventure as I had to travel and climb to get onto the scaffolding, this shows adventure as its a place not many people get to go to and see. I used a fisheye lens to try ad fit the whole seen in, that being the person, the height and the view.

With this picture I wanted to capture the plane as a tool for adventure and the person as the adventurer. I took it from behind to include both these things.

image (6)

I took this photo to show adventure and curiosity as it was travelling to a place I had never been.

image (7)

This picture shows adventure as planes are for travelling and travel is an adventure itself. My problem with the picture is how the window frame blocks the view and is distracting.

I took this picture to show adventure as the movement shows the travel to the adventure and the bike is the took used to experience the adventure. I used a wide angle lens to fit the wheel and ground in to show motion in the best way.

I took this to show the point of view of the rider.

I took this to show adventure as you can see the image is in motion, you can see the destination you have rode from but the destination ahead is unknown.

DSC_0013

I took the photo in this way to show the point of view of the rider.

DSC_0014

I took the photo in this way to show the board as the tool or adventure and the road to represent a place to travel to an adventure on and to create depth in the image.

DSC_0015

Same style as the other images but i used portrait as it fits in with the shape of the board. I think i shot this to close.

DSC_0016

I had the same idea with this image as the others but I don’t like how the wheels are slightly chopped out and the over all image is a bit flat. I shot this image to close.

DSC_0018

This image shows the board used for sport and adventure. I shot it this way i portrait as the board was in a portrait profile so portrait works with the shape of the board.

I took this picture to show adventure as it is showing a sight (the bridge and the landscape) that aren’t often seen unless you are on a adventure. The road also represents the path to travel on.

20140421-150339.jpg

This shows adventure as it is seeing things you don’t often see which can only be seen while being on a journey and being curious enough to look up.

image-2

This photo shows curiosity as the lady is interested in another human beings work. She is reading the description about the artist and the picture to learn more about it.

DSC_0053-2

This photo shows adventure as in the distance there are fields that can be explored and the road shows the path to travel on to get to them.

DSC_0045-2

I took this photo to show curiosity as it shows an animal in a inclosure with a person photographing it. The person photographing the animal shows that they’re curious as they want to preserve the sight of seeing it. The animal is also curious to what is happening by looking at the camera and coming right up to the glass.

DSC_0007-2

This picture shows adventure and curiosity as it involved climbing a structure to have an experience that isn’t often felt. Its a different perspective to what you would usually see as well. I included the legs in the shot to add scale and to make the viewer feel like they’re there.

Images that show the bad side to humanity, poverty, unhappiness and greed:

DSC_0044

I took this image of the homeless person because people need to know this is happening. You can also see the contrast in wealth in the shot. You have the homeless man then the wealth all the way down the street with cars and big buildings.

image

Similar image to the one below, but the shadows are to strong so you can’t make out the man sleeping.

image 2

I took this photo of a man sleeping under a bridge because i suspected he was homeless and you can see people in the background have a drink at a bar. The money from the drinks could go towards getting this man housed.

DSC_0026

This picture doesn’t fit into my project for adventure and poverty but it is an example of street photography.

This photo shows a lady working which shows her working towards a life she may wants to live, possibly the life shown in the reflection.

I took this photo to show a lady working which is a huge part of humanity, she is working so she can try and live the life she wants. The reflection also display buildings that could possibly represent the goal of what the lady wants to achieve.

DSC_0027

This picture doesn’t fit into my project for adventure and poverty but it is an example of street photography.

I took this photo because in the foreground there is a house that appears to be abandoned, so this house could be used for homeless or people in poverty but instead investments go to things such as the large modern building in the background.

DSC_0068

I took this photo to show the contrast between rich an the poor. You have a homeless man who is struggling to survive, while in the background you have a designer shop.

DSC_0067-2

I took this image to show passion in humanity and greed. The passion comes from the actions and expressions the people have towards the greed. The greed is what they are protesting against. The greed of fur which is a needless materialistic item that we don’t need to survive, yet people still want it.

DSC_0066-2

Similar to the image above, but their facial expressions don’t appear as passionate as the photo above.

DSC_0071-2

The image shows homeless man struggling to survive while there is a clear show of wealth. You have Mc Donald’s and a Nail salon which are both things we don’t need in our lives.

DSC_0072-2

The same style image as shown above but slightly closer. I don’t think it works as well being closer, as you cant see the other people walking by like homelessness is a normal thing.

DSC_0025-2

This image displays wealth while there is homeless people living in the shadows of these buildings. (perhaps display with a homeless picture next to it.)

20140421-150435.jpg

This picture shows a negative side to humanity as there is a contrast in wealth. There is a new building next to a abandoned building.

20140421-150448.jpg

This picture shows contrast in wealth and priorities as there is an abandoned building with a ferris wheel in the background. instead of building a ferris wheel the money could of gone towards the building by creating homes or offices instead of on an amusement ride.

DSC_0017-2

This picture shows the current financial struggle we have, with shops closing down and less jobs being around. The people in the image just personify the scene.
