Darren Almond, Chrystel Lebas and Bill Henson. These were suggested to me by a tutor at University, so I went and looked them up - and here I am!
Basically, a reallllllly long exposure at night would give me a star trail sort of effect, kind of like what happens when cars go past when you're doing a 10 second exposure. I think though, to acheive this I'd have to get a remote that set the shutter off (because I don't fancy holding the button down for an hour or two!
I'd love to create an image like the one at the top, its just so different and unique that I feel would work very well in my project. Hopefully I do get the chance
Secondly, shooting from a location where I can create silhouettes would be a good thing to do, too. I think that dark, strange shapes against a bright, colourful sky would work really well. Again depending on the exposure and time of day, the image would either come out looking like this image to the left, or one just below. I think that the sky works a whole lot better in this first picture than it does in the bottom one. The way that all the detail is taken out of the trees and hills in the background really makes you look at the sky.
This image is really great. Silhouetted (...again!) is the foreground of the photograph, with the background of the sea, horizon line, sky and the sun in great detail and amazing colour. The rich blue colours really stand out against the dark black of the foreground.
This one has a slightly darker tone to it, as the colours in the sky aren't so amazing as the others are. The darker clouds, however, work pretty effectively against the duller sky
oh. and. that's me finished.
