GCSE Photography student, Elyse Ratcliffe (Fifth Form), is focusing her final project on the theme ‘Constructs’. She chose this theme because of her interest in Architecture.
Elyse has chosen a range of photographers who have inspired her research and developments to study. They include Johnathon Jimenez – for how he captures abandoned spaces, Nico Goodden – for his interesting photographs of graffiti, David Gutierrez – for his London Underground photos, and Angus Vasili – for his interesting collages and compositions.
In her photography, she is trying to capture the combination of constructs that surround our daily lives, using a DSLR camera to capture these shots from a range of artistic viewpoints and angles.
Elyse is really enjoying looking at this subject matter as it gives her the opportunity to be creative and see architecture and landscapes from a new perspective. Photography is something Elyse is very passionate about; she is able to capture a moment in a second which will never be repeated again. The Photography course allows her the opportunity to learn and create unique outcomes through editing on Adobe Photoshop and other hands-on experimentation.
