Exercise 21: Making figures anonymous

In terms of the brief for the exercise I think the one of the fishermen with the Havana skyline behind is the most successful "primarily about the place, but in which one or more figures play a subsidiary role to show scale and to give life" although I guess this was meant to have more close up focus on place...

I had fun though thinking about how to make people more anonymous and my favourite is probably the blurred night shot with Matt rolling past in his wheelchair.  I really like the feel of it and the colours.

Exercise 20: Busy traffic

For this exercise, I tried to capture the crowd scenes at Koko during a gig.  As well as showing how busy the area was and the nature and function of the space, I also wanted to get some really pleasing images which were quite abstract.  We were restricted to a tiny area for wheelchairs so I could't try out other viewpoints but I quite liked some of the results.
