Live Brief - Ilford Photography Competition 'Lyrically Speaking"
Introduction: For this unit I hope to achieve a greater under standing of artists who create album covers and to make my own album covers. I will be using film to achieve these out come and a variety of dark room techniques. For my style of work i will be focusing on landscape and architecture.
I have chosen two historical examples "David Bowie, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders Mars 1972" and "The Beatles Abbey Road 1969"
Idea developmet: My ideas for this project is to go down to Liverpools industrial area photography the building, the docks and people work there. hopefully I can make use out of natural lighting to create a softer warm tone to the image.
Materials Techniques Process
Burning is when the image receives more exposure so the image can darken. To avoid a very obvious change between the burned-in area and the rest of the image, the device must stay in motion. Burning is a longer process because it needs a longer exposure and time to change the image.

With this shoot covering the "Beatles Album" on the retro record player, I was trying to achieve a contrast between light and dark and the natural background of the Pinewoods to show the differences of the two worlds of nature and the woods against the retro pop theme, whilst pushing to reflect the stark contrast of the dark shadow lines caused by the pine trees streaming through the woods highlighting the retro record player.
