With the PG Diploma Show completed and feedback received it seemed wise to reflect on the works to date that I have produced and make a fresh plan of action for my Masters Show. Even though I received positive feedback there is no place for complacency. I do not wish to fall into the trap of making works that please then churning out like a machine facsimiles. The whole point of creating to me is the reward of hopefully making new discoveries. Not that this is an easy goal, far from it. My favourite photographer
Sally Mann describes this trajectory:
The first piece of work from my last submission for critical analysis is my Viewmaster reel of bones. Although I was happy with the curated collection photographed and the intimacy of the viewer experience it did not completely wow because the images where in 2D. Without an expensive 3D camera it was time to investigate how I might solve this problem.
A google search later and I found many tutorials on how to make a 3D image out of a two camera construct. From these I made my own plans for a homemade rig.
Then I remembered that somewhere in my extensive collection of cameras I owned a Wray Stereo Graphic 35mm film camera. After locating the camera and giving it a service I searched the internet for the instruction manual. I concluded that this would be a good starting point for immersing myself in the world of 3D image production.
