After completing my first day at University yesterday I have now already received my first assignment as a Press and Editorial Photography student (yikes, to say the least). The assignment is called the Post Code Lottery in which my classmates and I picked a slip of paper out of a hat, which was a very dapper black hat by the way, on which had a random postcode on it. Each post code was in the hat either twice or three times so that each of us would have one or two partners to conduct this assignment with. Upon retrieving my post code TR11 3AZ I immediately took to Google Maps and found that my location was to be Beerwolf Books Freehouse in Falmouth town. I then found my partner and the two of us made plans for when we go to the pub/book store.
The brief for this assignment told us that we must photograph the exteriors and interiors of the location and the people or person working there. Once we have taken these images we are required to narrow our collective images down to just three, one from each of the above categories. It doesn't matter if they are my images or my partners or a mixture of both. Then we are to print the images off and have a pin up of our work with our other classmates as the audience and tell them a bit about our images.
The assignment isn't assessable, but rather a practice project to get us out and photographing our new home as some of us have been in the area less than forty-eight hours. Despite this, I plan on treating it as though it is assessable, not to stress but rather to get some practice for when I get my first assessable assignment.
New to the area myself, I hadn't even a vague idea as to where Beerwolf was located so on my way home I took a stroll through the town to try and spot it and at first completely missed the place as it is ticket away down a walkway between two other shops. With a location and date set I'm ready to take on this assignment which I will photograph on Thursday and post about once complete.
