I spent a few hours around Ueno yesterday with one of my photo students, looking at composition again but this time with a bent on seeing series of images and tying them up into a story.
We'd spent the first hour at McDonalds [free electricity to power the laptop, warm interior and if faced with no other available option.. ok coffee] going through last week's images. We edited down from 222 to 12 in 30mins and I then made two triptychs for her, one from each location we'd been shooting at. Two visual stories, told with three images each. It was a big moment for her I think, seeing the editing process and then the putting together of the best three images to make a story.
Anyway, we took a walk around Ueno Park and managed to find a little last flourish of autumn colour.. which I took the camera out of the bag to shoot. The only thing, apart from a few seagulls, I shot all day. My lessons are not always about me shooting. Just helping you shoot better.
