I created this personal project as a guide to help myself become a more skilled and efficient photographer. Lighting, shutter speeds, apertures, and ISO speeds are very important in determining how to produce a successful photograph. Each time I go out and take photographs I can put this in my purse or back pocket and use it as a reference. This compact design is meant to easily show what specific manual setting is needed within the context a user is working in.
My concept revolves around street photography which is fluid, rapid, and unexpected. I was inspired by forms of transportation such as the subway systems and pedestrian walking markers, which are both represented through bright yellow lines. I incorporated street icons such as arrows, lines, circles and stripes, which are common in metropolitan areas. By using common street colors such as yellow, red, black, and grey, I can convey an urban environment in my piece.
