OK, I know I tend to over-worry in situations like this. I've done the exercise a stunning six times. When you think of it, six photos out of 24 (which is the brief on what we are supposed to show) is a really high ratio to be any good, and I certainly can't rely on myself to produce one in four photos that I want to show to a bunch of professionals. The sets I'm about to show you all have at least one filler, some as many as three. All my good photos in the past are basically serendipitous images that came out of thousands of not-so-good ones. Monkeys, typewriters.
These last few days I've been really aware of my propensity to point a camera at something, anything, that catches my eye, and call that my style. But when you have to try to put together a set like this, you realise there is no style. Disparate images won't do. Something has to pull them together. In the case of the photos taken in mist, or at night, that's easy - the quality of light does it. Otherwise, theme required.
And I have new admiration for street photographers. It seems you can't just point your camera at a crowd and depend on people to be doing interesting things. Who knew?
Right, so, I know it doesn't really matter, and it's just a course. Beneath the cuts are my several options of sets that I could upload. It has to be tonight and it has to be pretty soon, because I'm fairly tired and have a little work to do as well. By the time you read this, I'll have made my decision (indeed, laying them out in a post like this will hopefully help me decide) - but feel free to tell me which set you'd submit. You know, with the proviso that if I could, I'd go and shoot the exercise another billion times, and never be happy.
