The brief for this task - set by Christine Shank - was that you have a random object given to you in a brown paper bag and you have one hour to go outside and photograph it.
I had to adapt this ever so slightly, but the method and outcome remained the same.
I got my mum to give me something out of her bag rather than give me something in a brown paper bag. The rest of the project remained the same as the task set. She gave me a wooden hand fan - not what I was expecting her to find in there so the element of surprise remained the same.
I then took it outside to shoot with. It was night time and I was shooting outside somewhere I knew, but had never really paid much attention. This proved to be exciting for me, not only giving me the chance to play with night photography and use of light but to explore somewhere new.
I paid particular attention to the shape of the fan, seeing how it could create patterns and shapes in the location.
Working mainly with the idea of geometry was how I got to my resultant image, which also make the fan look a bit like a butterfly.
