Catch Up

The group has produced some great results using the super sampler (4 shot) cameras. Unfortunately the fisheye didn’t work out so well – but that comes with the territory of analogue teachnology! Overall there is a really interesting range of images being built up, with technology/ techniques ranging from painting, a series of innovative plastic cameras, conventional digital cameras and most recently mobile phones.

Today was the first workshop after 2 weeks of work experience and the group are continuing to use the Adobe photoshop software to manipulate the images they have generated and design their individual postcards. The aim is that everyone will make 10 postcards out of which 2 will be selected for the final publication.

In the last workshop we looked at historical examples of Irish postcards from the 1970s to the present, many of which tended to be exageratedly positive, kitsch or stereotypical. The aim of our project is to produce a book of postcards that present an alternative understanding of this place.
