Where Art and Life Interact

Earlier this year, I participated in an online course with Otto von Münchow – here is a post about my project from Otto.

I have just started a new round of my eWorkshop «Finding Your Personal Voice». As always I enjoy looking at other’s work and to be able to return some feedback. There are still quite a few participants from my previous course I taught in the spring, who I haven’t presented here on my blog. Susan Judd is one of them. She has a very strong visual sense and likes to play elements up against one another. In addition I see a social concern in her photographic work, which radiates from her approach and in the way she visually express her chosen subjects. For her personal photo project during the eWorkshop, Susan chose to work with street art. But she didn’t just want to render the street art as it appears on walls, palings or fences…

  1. Stunning work, Sue. I really like the cyclist one. 🙂

  2. Fabulous! I saw that last image fleetingly in my Reader the other day but didn’t connect it with you as I didn’t know you’d worked with Otto. 🙂
    I especially like the first and second images. Did you feel that you learned a lot on the course, Sue? You certainly seem to be making progress with the technical side.

    • Thanks, Jo, glad you like them! The course wasn’t teaching technical stuff per se, but getting you to think about how you harness the capabilities of the camera to create the ‘look’ you want. And to find your individual photographic voice. Not sure I’ve found my voice, but it has really got me thinking about how to get certain images… I think my Beauty in Decay is one result. 🙂

    Well done Sue ! Quite a commitment the course, but looks like you enjoyed and have taken it on further with your series .

  4. Sue, some of these I recognize from our class work last spring, but I don’t remember those first two. I LOVE them. And you really got a wonderful image with the cyclist whizzing by in your third image. Was that serendipity, perchance?

    • Glad you like these, Linda. And as for the cyclist, pure serendipity! But what I did quite a lot on my outings to capture images for the project was to stay in a promising area for a while to see what happened. People, cars, mopeds and cyclists might go past and I would take different images to see what worked…. It was advice I picked up either from Otto or another photographer.
