My Dad as an ‘Informed Subject’

When thinking about the Photographs i have already gathered and the ones i will make in the future with this project, I have seen that my Dad is an Informed subject. I first noticed this by his dress and the way he has chosen to represent himself. In the first set of photographs i have taken in our trip to betws-y-coed, he is wearing smart clothing and it suggest that he knows he is going to be Photographed. This has given me  a positive opinion of the effect the undertaking of this project is having on him. This is saying to me that he is Happy to be making Images that he wants to Collaborate with me as the Photographer to give a positive representation of himself. This means that the statement and practice we have outlined and communicated on as my Dad as Author and me as Producer is providing him with a great sense of control and is working positively in regards to producing work that is in no way exploiting him as the subject but also working in producing good work that we can be happy with.
