  16. Essentially working in a two-dimensional medium, the outcomes of photography can be much broader than just a sheet of paper

  17. Materials

  18. Camera (input)

  24. Expensive appearance

  25. Glossy

  26. Matte

  27. etc

  28. Fabric

  29. Sheet materials other than paper

  30. There are compositional 'rules' which all photographers learn to apply and many go on to ignore, bend or rewrite

  31. Rules of composition are there to help the photographer make a 'good' picture and the viewer to understand it

  32. Rule of thirds

  33. Golden Section

  34. Point of Focus

  35. Leading lines

  36. Depth of field

  37. etc etc

  38. Describing my work

  39. I am a photographer, I take, print, publish and exhibit photographs

  40. I take photographs of a broad range of subjects, but specialise in reportage/street photography/candids/environmental portraiture

  41. I have developed strategies for taking photographs of people which are unobtrusive and non-confrontational

  42. I like to think that I can build up a good rapport with people who are aware of or have consented to being photographed

  43. My photographs are technically good, but not perfect

  44. My images are creative - I look for unusual angles, points of view etc.

  45. I often shoot to crop - none of this 'what you see in the viewfinder is sacrosanct' nonsense

  46. I look for the unusual, bizarre, amusing in people

  47. I can spot shape, form, texture and compose around these

  48. I teach teachers how to make effective use of digital technologies to enhance creativity across the curriculum (but we won't go down that avenue right now)

  49. Effect/s of my work

  50. On me
