Assignment 1 – Encountering Culture – ideas

A few test shots – Ideas for jacked in society. Are we all slaves to technology? I live in a household of 6 people yet I have noticed that people seem to spend more time interacting in a virtual way than face to face. I want to use the camera to demonstrate how  , within wider society, technology is becoming ever ingrained into our daily lives. Indeed for some they cannot envisage a live without it.

Taken using my Fujifilm HS30 exr digital camera. The aim of my final images will be to show the increasing dependance that we have on our tech.

In the 24/7 world the need to be connecting at all times seems to be paramount. The final pieces for this project will be shot in black and white film.

I have had an idea!! – Portraits of people but through their mobile phones!  This might work. Going to try some test shots with digital… watch this space.
