Analog photo booths in train and bus stations are all but a thing of the past. Last year at this time, Bonanza pulled its Polaroid-based system and has yet to replace it.
Photo booths take four photographs with a few seconds between each photo. Apple makes a Photo Booth application that does the same thing. I am asking you to use the application to make a set of four prints that say something about yourself or your DP project.
Do not choose any of the effects that the application provides. Use timing, composition and props to illustrate your point. Be open to the unexpected.
Insert the portrait of yourself with a new post on this site under the category Assignment 1
– Bring props.
– Work with the timing of exposures.
– Bring your own background.
– Do nothing.
– Sing a song.
– Interact with the space/camera.
– Create a narrative.
I will project each portrait. Who is the maker of the portrait? What are words that describe what we see? How can we use those words as the basis for interpretations or “readings” of the work or person. Are those readings what the maker intended or expected?
