Creating a small story book

This task was our first but small task for out field module. In groups of three we had to create a small 8 paged book which had a loose narrative about an object. My groups object was a Star Wars memory stick. The first thing we did once we decided on our object was sketch out a rough story board so we had some sort of idea what imagery we would be putting in the book. It mainly consisted of the life a memory stick experiences such as being put in a computer etc.

Once this had taken place we got to work with taking the pictures, initially zooming in to the memory stick from afar, this was the narrative for the first of the three books. The second book was of me picking up the stick and pulling it apart, finally placing it near the computer. The final booklet was of us putting the stick back together.

After this we edited the photos to black and white on Photoshop and arranged them in such a way, so when we printed them we could easily fold them into an 8 page booklet.

In reflection, things to possibly try for next time or with a later and similar project is maybe the use of colour while printing may make the composition clearer and more interesting for anyone viewing it. In addition we could also try creating it on a much bigger scale and see how that would turn out.
