350mc Symposium Research Proposal
For my research project I am going to answer the question ‘How do photographers choose to work with toys for their photographs and is there a reason behind why they do?’ I have chosen this question because using toys in images is something I have been interested in since I first started using photography as a medium. For a starting point I am going to research how a variety of photographers use toys in their images, I will highlight their work and then from there, research if there are any reasons as to why the photographers chose to photograph the toys. I know that this research will be really interesting and will help me improve my own work. I will also be researching many unknown photographers which will be interesting for me and my audience. I will showcase my research in DVD format because I think this is the best way for me to be able to speak to a large audience confidently. I will be able to record my own voice reading out my script and, using a movie making program put video and images over the top of my voice, to create a professional project. My DVD will then be shown with other DVD presentations on a screening night, and then I will be able to answer any questions after the viewing.
