This task for our learners was ‘The Unknown’. This theme was set to test students’ creativity in their use of Composition. A perfect ‘unknown’ shot is one that looks interesting but isn’t obvious enough as to what the subject actually is. Here you can be really creative with the most uninspiring of things.
Lots of excellent entries were submitted into the gallery of images - here are the winners.
The peoples vote goes to Michelle Collier for this shot inside a big tube. Great response to the theme, showing enough of the subject to be interesting but not that much to give away what it is. And the monotone blue colour adds to aesthetics of the shot. A well-deserved win!
The shots were so good, I couldn’t decide on just one so I chose two for my vote! The first one I chose was this rusty shot by James Shand. I chose this because it looks like a modern art piece. I can almost imagine seeing it hanging in the Tate Modern! The texture and the colours are great too. Well done James, great shot.
The second one I chose was this black and white shot of sea grass by Sam Blackie. I chose this as it certainly evokes of theme of ‘The Unknown’ - It’s a great shot that makes you wonder what it really is. Well done Sam, great response to the theme.
