I approached this shoot differently. I wanted to include a further research technique to my work, i wanted to find out what people thought their genderless features were.
I made a small survey and asked 8 people, 4 males, 4 females, which part of their body (listed parts of the body) they thought to be genderless. Once the surveys were complete i then photographed the chosen feature of which each person believed to be genderless.
This survey helped me to discover a different approach to gender identity and what people thought about it in relation to themselves. From this i have been able to decide that i am going to focus my final images on the eyes and ears of both male and female subjects as i believe them to be the most genderless parts of the human body. However due to the survey suggesting other features i am going to develop this into focusing on different body limbs instead of facial features.
The content of the images were fully focused on the key feature and were shot near a window through the day in a classroom. The exposure in the images was correct and allows you to see all details of the images.
I shot the photographs at a straight on angle, as i was level with the subject. In the images of the eyes i made the eyes look up and to the side.
