A4 Contact sheets of all images

These may take a few moments to download. Click to open full size. Contacts were made from Lightroom then annotated on my tablet and saved as jpgs. I tried a variety of approaches when shooting – boxes in the wider landscape, interference with boxes, intentional camera movement and documenting the phone itself.

    A comprehensive investigation. Made me think as well how some people have turned de-commissioned telephone boxes into libraries.

      Thank you Catherine. There are a few other uses out there, that’s probably a C&N assignment in itself 🙂

    Hi Kate. These were the pics I mentioned in my comment on Facebook. I thought they might be galleries that I could click for larger views. I’m hoping to see some of these in a larger size in a future post?

    Are these self guided from a general class set topic? Is the blog part of your assessment?

    There are numerous images here that are wonderful. The experimentation and shooting and reshooting has given you so many great results! Also love that you were able to find different booths to photograph. They are all gone here.

      Hi Kate, thank you so much for commenting, I am thrilled with your feedback. You can see full size versions by going to the second set here – https://kateastoneyv.wordpress.com/2017/03/09/a4-revised-set-following-peer-review/comment-page-1/#comment-167 .
      The brief for the assignment was to choose one of three lighting exercises to build on; I chose “the beauty of artificial light”, I love the glow we get from these boxes and we take them so much for granted. So much of Wiltshire is conservation area that it’s not hard to find boxes – I barely scratched the surface of boxes within a 10 mile radius – but many of them don’t have phones in them any more. For assessment I send in work from all five assignments, reworked versions and my sketchbook and blog. I’m currently on #4 of 5, though 5 is already being scoped out and planned. Do you have no public phone boxes in Australia? thanks again for your really encouraging comment.

        Hi Kate. All the red wooden boxes went decades ago, replaced with metal and glass ones. Then they all disappeared. I honestly can’t think of a single public phone anywhere. Maybe there are some? I just never need them, so I guess I never notice them anymore.

        Your assessment sounds really varied and asks a lot of skills of you. Sounds like a well rounded course! I have sent you another message on my FB Photobooth Journal page. I decided to explore more of your blog in Safari so that I could keep going back to it. I lose track of things here in the WP Reader. Big mistake! It refuses to remember that I have signed in. Will tinker with my settings!

        Our boxes are all on Ordnance Survey maps, which seems to lend them a degree of permanence in real life though I don’t quite understand why.
        Yes, I’m enjoying my studies, it is good to see my work changing and developing over the months. I hope you can get your settings sorted and thank you so much for your comments here, I really appreciate it.
