Shot from the furthest point in the kitchen into jack's room. I couldn't stop going back nd shooting the red chair and his red cons. I'm not sure if this is something that's left over from the last assignment but it was kind of frustrating because everything i took i wasn't happy with. Even this image i'm not happy with. The lines aren't straight. I couldn't get the right exposure for the kitchen for the second room.
This is an image of the knobs on our washing machine. The machine is that old that every single option has rubbed off. I don't even know what the first three knobs do. I enjoy the white contrasted against the orange. I also love how it's all straight lines and sharpe edges. I don't like this one as much because the focus point is on the centre knobs so the first big silver one is out of focus which is where you look first.
This is an image of the knobs on our washing machine. The machine is that old that every single option has rubbed off. I don't even know what the first three knobs do, I've probably been washing my jeans in hot water this whole time. No wonder they've shrunk. I enjoy the white contrasted against the orange. I also love how it's all straight lines and sharpe edges.
My disgusting bedroom at the moment. I've let it get way out of hand. I felt like i as showing a lot about the boys and nothing much of my contribution to the house so i thought i better add something. not that this image is good at all. It's out of focus and boring to look at.
This is a side/frotn view of our extremely old washing machine/dryer. I swear it's older than my nan. The best part is, it uses A LOT of water and doesn't even wash the clothes. I love the colours in this image though. Its a cool pallet that is somewhat calming.
FINAL This is the constant state of our dining table. Beer bottles and rubbish everywhere. It normally covered in paper and cutting boards as well but I cleaned those up the other day. I took this shot from every angle possible but the table just always make it look tacky and horrible. Why is this assignment not working out for me :(((((
FINAL Another shot of our bathroom. Wanted to go for completely different composition this time and shoot from a different angle. I'm constantly intrigued by the repetition of blue, not just in our bathroom but in everyones bathroom. I got this idea of angle from Alec Soth. And i do enjoy it. Not sure which bathroom shot i like better though.
image taken from outside looking into our laundry. There's a couple of sun reflections that i didn't realise until right now. I enjoy the way the ajar door crops the washing machine perfectly. I also enjoy the colour of the the green door. This image isn't as obscure as i'd like my images for this series to be.
I looked up from jacks desk and saw his timetable on his wall. underneath it says. "what to do when stressin" with two options shooting off it saying "do the thing you're stressing about" or "do the thing you're stressing about immediately". I thought it was pretty funny and i decided to take the shot as i saw it, slightly constricted from the lamp.
FINAL Table in a lounge room. One of our ceramic animals with a makeshift sock beanie. I was trying to get a different angle of the clutter. I'm not if i like it all that much but it's definitely on elf the better shots i've taken for this assignment. i enjoy the side light and how it shows off the best side of hound dog.
FINAL Closer crop to the front of the house than before. I like how plain and bland the colours are as it depicts exactly how the inside of the house is. The weather also looks extremely gloomy here which is the feeling on the inside of the house as well as everyones busy with exams and final assignments.
FINAL I'd like to use this image as the closing shot. I feel the close up shows that we've come to a "close" and it's taken us back to the start and essentially in a loop of documentary the activities of 1 Beckley st. I also enjoy the high contrast, it makes the shallow depth of field even more prominent.
Possibly another opening shot. The light wasn't so sharp today so there's no light reactions on the lens this time. I like how the pillar shows that it's clearly a house and this is the opening gate. I also enjoy how the pillar is off centre, makes it different and more pleasing.
FINAL Everybody meet Sriracha, our butt fern. I enjoy the way the green contrasts against the dull brown walls. Not quite sure if it'll fit into the series though, It definitely emits share house but it doesn't have much context to it.
