The MA04 is all about photography and getting to know your camera. We got this task handed out already in academic week 2, but wasn’t going to submit it until academic week 18. I think we got this amount of time that we had a lot of opportunities to shoot outside and plan different settings. The task was to take a minimum of one image for each of the ten briefed categories (you can see them In the pdf below) and submit the best for each category and put them in a collage. Afterward, we had to decide which 3 images that we shot was the best, and underpin why.

During the semester project, I chose to work with a smart house and electro firm called Elicom. They’re stationed in Bergen and met up with them to discuss ideas they had I what they wanted from this. I also came with a lot of different ideas of sketches and symbols to use in the logo. They really liked what I had in mind and on the first meeting, we settled on an idea that we both thought could be a perfect logo. We maintained contact during the period through emails because I live in Copenhagen for the moment.

In this assignment, we were set to do a photoshoot for a radio station and make an advertising for both web and print, in different sizes. The task was extremely fun but also demanding. The studio shooting is something that I’ve never done before but I had the pleasant opportunity to borrow a studio from a friend so that I was able to work with several lightings and a great wall in both black and white.
For the task, I chose to define my target audience as young adults, both students and those who don’t study. Specified age will be 16 to 25. They should be interested in music and preferably new music that is not categorized to pop. They can live in the whole country as long as there has connection to the DAB radio system. A lot of them will have interest in making their own music, but there is room for «just» music lovers as well.
