Bataphobia is the fear of heights, being
close to high buildings or things falling on you from a high place. Bataphobia
is considered to be a specific phobia. Bataphobia is also related to acrophobia
and altophobia. I chose to use a crane aposed to a building because cranes
often hold heavy objects that are more likely to fall on someone rather than a
building. I took the picture at night to give it a creepier affect then used
cooler colours to make the picture a little darker.
Elevator -fear of being trapped
is at the heart of many winter-related fears due to the risk of being trapped
underneath a snow drift or thin ice. However, many other unusual but not
unheard of events might also trigger cleithrophobia, including
being inadvertently locked in a bathroom, elevator or other small places.
I used an elevator because it’s a place people get commonly trapped in and I
used a low f-stop number to make a blurry affect on the door.
Cars -fear of being
hit by a car hit and run ocd.
The fear of hurting victims in a car accident,
getting hit by a car or causing a car crash. I chose a highway because if
someone has that fear it’d be the worst place to be for them. I used a low
f-stop number again to cause a blurry affect to make the cars seem faster.
Dark -fear of
something lurking in the dark
of the dark is a common phobia among children and, to a
varying degree, of adults. Fear of the dark is usually not fear of darkness
itself, but fear of possible or imagined dangers concealed by darkness. I couldn’t
take a picture of complete darkness (obviously) so I chose a half lit roomthat faded
into blackness. Using low lighting I could make the affect of darkness without
haing to to just take a black picture.
Stairs -fear of
fear of falling (FOF) is a
natural fear and is typical of most humans and mammals, in varying degrees of
extremity. It differs from acrophobia (the fear of heights), although the
two fears are closely related and sometimes indistinguishable. I used stairs
because they’re easy to fall down and I took the picture from a higher level
and used low lighting to make a more ominous effect.
