Over the past weeks I have been racking my mind over what a suitable first project for my MA could be. My one and only set brief is to photograph something that i’ve never done before – something different.
My first idea was to incorporate some information I found during the summer about what direction digital cameras are heading. According to Canon, they believe that the notion of taking one or two photographs will be extinct in years to come. Photography will evolve to become a continued flow of video that you will then be able to single out a particular image. Below is a video demonstration of such device dubbed the ‘Wonder Camera’.
However, having discussed the idea of examining the likely impact of video capture only devices (or VCOD) on future photographic practice, I was unable to find a solid photographic outcome.
So, from one futuristic Hypothesis to a very old one. Next up – The Golden Ratio.
