This week’s photo assignment is: Movement. All of the images I posted are related to transportation.
In this picture, I liked that the word “urgent” was in itself a reference towards movement in a way. Then when I focused out, it hit me that there was a second reference to movement with the taxis in the background.
By the time I took this photo the rain had started and I was forced underground for the rest of my shoot. While rather literal, this ad campaign is about movement.
One of the lessons I learned along the way for this assignment is that I am missing a valuable piece of equipment: a tripod! I wanted to play around with long exposures more, however, in most cases the images just came out bad. Then I let loose a bit and realized why not have some fun and play with the lights as a train pulled away. This was my first attempt in ages. Lots of room for improvement. In a way this reminds me of an EKG line.
I love art stickers. When I saw the minor addition to the L train sign, I couldn’t stop singing, “people of the world, join hands…join the love train, etc.” Again, this movement is public transportation related.
With this final photo for this assignment, I played around with the angle that I took this picture; for two reasons. The first is that I need to learn how to better adjust my positioning when there are reflections. Since I don’t have photo editing software, what you see is what you get for now. The reflection from the florescent lines were annoying me. Then, the second reason – and the one related to this assignment – when I turned the angle a bit, I started to feel as if the music was moving out of this mosaic man’s saxophone. This was taken at the 86th street stop, heading downtown.
