Evidence of action

One photograph in which it can be seen that something had happened and the exercise asks for 5 examples of concepts that are used in advertising to depict that something had happened.  The example given was advertising and the fact that insurance companies use symbols such as umbrellas and cupped hands to symbolise protection.  I understand that but struggled to see that this was suggesting ‘that something had happened’.

I came up with several ideas of my own for pictures that would show that something had happened, e.g. my granddaughter with cake crumbs on her face, a pile of feathers where a bird had met an untimely end, cake crumbs on a plate, a smashed up car in a breakers yard, some orange or apple peelings, and the one I finally settled on, an empty chocolate wrapper.


About Anne Bryson

I live in Gloucestershire with my husband Iain and West Highland Terrier, Isla. I enjoy golf, photography and my grandchildren, not necessarily in that order! Having completed a 10 week digital photography course with the Open University in 2010 and wanting to take photography further, I enrolled on the Open College of the Arts BA (Hons) starting with 'The Art of Photography' which I thoroughly enjoyed. Next came Digital Photographic Practice followed by People and Place. In April 2016 I progressed to level two with Documentary and in June 2018 enrolled on my latest OCA course, Landscape.
