This assignment really stumped us! We had to photograph for a book cover that was titled "You must be the change you want to see in the world," a quote from Gandhi. It was so hard to come up with a way to illustrate this. The front of the cover is the glazed vase and the back was the unglazed vase. I took the approach that we are all vessels to do/carry out things and that clay is a very moldable object, easily changed, waiting for the potter to put his hands on to shape into a masterpiece. After shaping the beauty comes out in the glaze that is applied.
Lighting is complicated and hard! In Photographic Illustration class we had to find an ad that had lighting that we liked, dissect the lighting and then duplicate the the pictures as close to the ad as possible. I THOUGHT I has picked a relatively easy lighting set up, but NO! This was the hardest lighting set up I have done. Thank goodness our teacher, James Walters, was there helping me every step of the way. Here is a shot of the ad I picked and the photograph I took to duplicate it. Still learning!
