The second field trip (Exercise in Visual Aesthetic) was on 25th March. A couple of days before this, we had had a lecture on ‘Visual Design in Films’ during which we discussed how filmmakers use images to tell stories. And how these images are made to look aesthetically appealing.
The first field trip (Observation Exercise) was on 17th March, the third day of the course. On that day the students, in groups of three, went to five different landscapes in Mumbai and clicked ten pictures at each spot. So each one of them clicked at least 50 pictures that day. The condition was: Each photo should, for you, be a new perspective on life – either a new thing, or a new way of looking at things. In the evening, they assembled and individually selected five best pictures from their bunch and then presented them to the class, sharing why they clicked those. Here are the ten standouts!
