I had difficulty settling on a theme that was visually
interesting. I wanted my images to be
different and thought provoking. A
series of sunset images doesn’t inspire the viewer to think deeper.
I decided to create a series of images of things my mobile
phone has replaced. I collated three items of similar purpose from different eras and then photographed them
with the very thing that has replaced them.
The title of my theme is ‘Replaced’.
I found it challenging to make the images interesting. The items, such as the timers, are not visually
exciting and it was difficult to present them in a way that was artistic. The use of the splash filter was especially
useful for this.
The images represent the telephone, torch, map, radio, watch,
timer, clock and camera. The final image
of the ink pen and paper is a photographic title which also represents the
replacement of letter writing.
I have used various applications to alter my images including
the camera options in my Huawei phone, Snapseed, Toolwiz and Pixlr. All images have had saturation, brightness,
contrast and other alterations.
