After all the hard work of sanding and painting, we got allocated spaces where we began to set up our work.
I haven’t set up the photographs as of yet because I need mounting board from college which is due to come after half term, however, I placed A1 and A2 paper onto the boards to decide which would be too big or too small.
I think that the A2 is definitely too small and I even think that the A1 is too small so I have made the decision to use photo size of A0.
I have narrowed my photograph options down too, two possible options;
I like this composition because I like how they are back to back and I think that they work really well and are strong together
This is my tutors favourite composition and she feels it is a lot stronger together than option 1 and I have to 100% agree; I love the movement of the hair on the fire photograph as I feel it really represents fire and its movement well and I think it contrasts the ice garment really well because ice is static and strong and I think that the positioning of the model and the staticness on the photograph works well together.
Therefore, I will be using option 2 in my exhibition.
Setting up the classroom for the exhibition consisted of cleaning the classroom of old work, tables, drawers, scrap paper and rubbish.
