PHOTOGRAPHY/FRAMING by Alan
Inspired by Struth, Thomas, who is a German photographer who is best known for 1970s black and white photographs of the streets New York. I used techniques I learnt last week to shoot two pieces of photos. The first photo was shot outside of UTS library, and the other one was shot in CBD. The main technique I used is A series of seemingly banal and quotidian spaces, to highlight perspective of buildings on both sides of street from the near to the distance. Both images are taken from a similar position on the road which creates a consistent point of view and vectors within each photo. These are banal, as similar views are seen all over the city and hence are nothing out of the ordinary.
