Sequencing

Updated: Apr 28, 2021


After building a collection of images from test shoots, experimentations and developments, it became clear that these photographs when represented together tell a story far grater than on their own.


As each one illustrates my concept of fragmentation of the human form, each one is different by either the use of domestic settings, objects or reflection to fragment the figure. Although when I had the prints in front of me I could see that the use of tonality was stitching the photographs into a clear sequence of 'warm toned' and 'cold toned'.


Using the element of tonality to sequence my images into two categories definitely complimented the collection as a hole as this can be useful towards organising portfolio submissions, creating exhibitions and photobooks.


Although I knew I needed to consider compositional skills such as dynamic lines to create an effective layout. As within an exhibition, when I layout my images I want the viewer to be drawn into the sequence rather than away and this can also be applied in a photobook.


After creating a few different layouts and considering how they all flow together, I knew this was the best sequence for the series of images I have created so far. However the question I was asking myself now was, do I need to reshoot any ideas? do I need more images/ideas?


Sequencing is one of the most important stages after creating work whether it is a photographers online website, exhibition and photobook.


How you present your work is just as important as creating the work.
