The next two creative methods I used were Free Association and Journalistic Mapping. Free Association has been my favorite form of method because it’s fun and it’s a good way to diverge yet converge to and from the project statement. I choose keywords from the statement, such as manipulation and photography, and then came up with words that I thought of at the top of my head. Some of these words have given me inspiration for things or scenes that I can use in my photography.
For Journalistic Mapping, I answered questions such as Who, What, Where, When, Why, and How. I thought these questions were really helpful because it forced me to answer these vague questions in detail.
