I went into Uni two days ago, to start editing my photos I took. I realised that they were all really out of focus, so I had to retake all of them again. This has taken a huge step back in my project as I thought that I would be well into editing by now. So my progress today is retaking all my photos. I will hopefully start editing either tomorrow or have a late night editing on Tuesday!
After researching concepts and ideas, I took those images I found and created new ideas. The sketches to me are not gripping enough. They all seemed to be just surface ideas, nothing that I really want to pursue. So I am trying to pick out an idea and play around with it a bit more.
Does anyone have any feedback or an idea that you think could be quite good?
In my creation I will be using photography to create an article illustration. In order to evoke an emotion from the audience, my message will have to be clear and well structured.
The topic of my image will be a female having an eating disorder.
My current idea that I am working on is having a woman standing in front of food, trying to make the decision to eat or not to eat. This will show the struggle that people with this disorder, face everyday and at least three times a day.
Through my image, I want to capture the following objectives:
- Eating disorders are not a glamorous illness
- Showing the vulgar and raw side
- Something that should not be envied
- The struggle of having an eating disorder
- Showing an everyday struggle that people with eating disorders face
- Expose the secret that people with eating disorders keep
If you have any feedback for me, please feel free to comment below.
I have chosen this article about Bulimia in women because it is a common illness but it is not openly spoken about. A lot of people are aware of eating disorders in teenage girls but it is actually becoming more common in middle aged women. I want to make my image raw so that the message of Bulimia is easily shown. So many ideas are already jumping at me. I cannot wait to start producing my own concepts.
