Lockdown Documentary Project
I am needing your help to create a photographic documentary series, which depicts life in lockdown. Since we are in lockdown, I cannot be present to photograph you. However, I can provide instructions for you when it comes to how and what to shoot.
This project will be in 3 parts, meaning that you only need to focus on a small number of photographs at any given time. I will give you the first set of instructions now, and then in a couple of weeks I’ll send the next set, and then two weeks after that I will send the last set, you get the jist. These instructions will be emailed to you, but also available here.
Yes, you can use your phone
You can use your phone camera to complete this series.
DO NOT edit any photographs before sending them to me. Please DO NOT use any filters or the Portrait camera on iPhones.
I recommend you turn on the grid in your camera settings to help with you compositions. Let me know if you do not know how to do this and I will show you.
Play with the available light if you can, if there are any interesting shadows falling on what you are photographing etc.
The following content on this page are the instructions for what I sort of images I want from you.
In addition to these, if you have any significant events like birthdays, anniversaries, celebrations of some kind, please feel free to add this to you documentation of lockdown.
PLEASE SEND PHOTOGRAPHS VIA IMESSAGE OR EMAIL ONLY
A photograph of part of your morning routine, whether that be brushing your teeth, stretching, meditating, making a smoothie etc.
Go a walk and photograph it. It could be of the path you are following, or the person/people from your household you may be with.
Photograph the view from your window. You could do this an hour before sunset which gives you interesting light.
