UNIT 29 AND 30: Audiences in documentary photography

There are several audiences in documentary, below is a list of the different audiences.

Everyone:

This audience is hard to target because you got to create an image which will appease everyone. The audience is easy to target because a family friendly image will work with the everyone audience. I don’t like this audience because it is to general and cannot target a certain group of people. I like this audience because it is general therefore my work will be seen more. My buskers idea will be suitable for this audience because the idea is family friendly. I think my homeless people idea won’t be suitable because I think homeless people is for a mature audience because younger people won’t really think anything about the image.

Children:

This audience is a very hard to target because children don’t form opinions about photography so it will be hard to make an image which is targeted at children. I can try to make an image which is full of colour which will attract children because they are attracted to bright and colourful objects. I like this audience because it will allow me to be really creative because I will have to capture the interest of children. Both of my ideas won’t be suitable for this audience because my ideas are ideas which is more suitable for ages above this audience. Below is a lifestyle board:

Teenagers:

This audience is easy to target because the audience have started to develop their own interests. This means I have to theme my images to hobbies to suit this audience. This audience will suit my buskers idea because buskers relate to music so this idea will be suitable for the teenagers who like music. This audience will suit my homeless people idea because homeless people relate to word issues so this idea will be suitable for teenagers who like world issues. Below is a lifestyle board:

Adults:

This audience is easy to target because most images will ok with any images they view because they have seen everything. I also like this audience because they will take their own children to exhibitions meaning my work will get seen more. I think both of my ideas will be suitable for this audience because the audience will be ok with any images they view. below is a lifestyle board:

In conclusion after looking at these audiences I am going to target teenagers because I am a teenager and I understand what attracts teenagers.
