First Group C Task

As part of my course, I was set a task to meet up with my seminar group C and take photographs in and around Bournemouth. We would be given a score per photo depending on how many people were in the photo. This was a great icebreaker and a good oppurtunity to explore more around the area that I will be living in for the next three years


As a group we decided to meet at Hot Rocks cafe by the pier where most of us showed up and we got talking then planned our day to where we were going to take our photos.

Our locations we could chose from:

  • In front of Talbot House Student Centre
  • In front of the main entrance to Poole House
  • In front of Railway Station (Asda side)
  • In front of the large Balloon in Lower Gardens
  • At the surf reef with view of the Boscombe Pier
  • In front of the Durley Inn pub at Durley Chine
  • Outside the Branksome Beach restaurant at Branksome Chine
  • Outside the Lighthouse Arts Centre in Poole
  • In front of the Regent Centre in Christchurch
  • In front of Christchurch Priory
  • In front of the ticket office where foot passengers and cyclists buy tickets for the Sandbanks toll ferry.

So we had to improvise and go around the corner. From left to right these are some of my class mates – Elliot, Christopher and Grace. (1 point per person)  3 Points

This in my opinion was the best photo taken for the day! In front of the large balloon in Lower Gardens. As this place is beautiful and gives off a very relaxed atmosphere. ( 2 points per person) 10 points

At the surf reef at Boscombe Pier. We walked all the way to Boscombe but struggled to find Surf Reef so we kind of improvised and found Rock Reef instead, otherwise it would of been a wasted walk! (2 points her person) 10 points

This was taken in front of the Durley Inn pub at Durley Chine.

Task 1

My first task was to look for naturally occurring shapes which can be photographically framed as letters from the alphabet. We were also advised to stick to a theme within the brief, to which I decided to do metals, however part way through taking the photos I found it difficult to stick to the theme therefore resulting to breaking my theme and just get objects that appear to look like letters of the alphabet.

Task 1 photoshop Alphabet(small)

During this task I struggled finding the letters G and K which I feel took most of my time up. I think I over complicated this task and tried to look for really obscure objects, but I think if I were to do it again i would stop and think and there will be a letter in front of me if I look hard enough and look with a simplistic view not over complicating anything.
