Assignment Five Tutor Feedback

Just realised I haven’t posted up my tutor feedback for Assignment Five. Here is it, as I write this my assessment is waiting until March to be judged. I’m feeling so nervous and excited, I’ve put my whole heart into this project from hours spent researching and planning to thinking about every aspect of the […]

Assignment Five Video

Through the Eyes of a Child. Created by me, including the music and singing.  

Assignment Five Completed

The Official Assignment I will be telling the story of the wedding in a unique way, through a childs eyes. My fifteen month nephew, Leo, to be precise. Creating photos that depict a different point of view is going to be a challenge but I’m really looking forward to it. Instead of including my nephew in the photos […]

Migrant Mother

When photographer Dorothea Lange stopped by the road side by a sign for Pea Pickers, she took a few photos in fifteen minutes of a migrant family and then left. Those fifteen minutes changed her life and became the icon of the Great Depression. Incredibly she only took six frames. When I first saw her work […]

Assignment Four Tutor Feedback

I received my tutor feedback on Assignment Four. When I read through it I wasn’t sure how to feel exactly, but when I read it again I selected all the good positive parts and was quite pleased as there was definitely more of that than negative. My tutors comments appear in bold. And my response […]

Assignment Four Extra

I was experimenting with different ways of presentation and created the following for my photos of  Assignment Four.        

Assignment Four; The Video

Through this course I’ve discovered my love of film and photography combined together. I love creating a video to go alongside the photos. Hope you enjoy it. The Magic Gemstone Ilona has been ill with m.e an invisible illness that casts her world in black and white of pain and misery. Then one day her sister […]

Assignment Four: Applying Lighting Techniques

Phew, I’ve finally completed Assignment Four, it was probably one of the quicker assignments. It took maybe a week with intense photography and a lot of research before hand. There was also tones of frustration especially with the form aspect, I was ready to knock the ‘improvised studio’ across the room! Luckily it did that […]

Tutor Feedback Assignment Three

Well I got my tutor feedback for my Assignment Three and am really really happy with her response. There were a lot more positive points than negative and she said she could see how much I loved this assignment and had fun with it. I’ll put my response in italics. Overall Comments An interesting exploration […]

Love and a little bit of magic.

This is for my photography degree, I had to create a series of photos using colour and decided to add a a story to it. Hope you like it. I wanted to have an audio track in the background but it was taken down on Facebook when I had owl city in the background. So […]

Assignment Three

The final images for Assignment Three and my photographic analysis alongside each one. All the images can be seen in this short film I made her on IMovie. Sorry there is no sound, I posted it on Facebook and because there was music on it I was told to keep it down. So consider it […]

Finished Assignment Three

Well I’ve officially finished Assignment Three. Phew this one took a serious amount of time and at times I really thought I’d given myself too much to do what with the theme and story and everything but I think it’s paid off. At least I’m pretty happy with it. But I’m not going to sit […]

Emotions and Colour in Photography

These are my research notes as I began assignment three, which I am pleased to say I have finally completed 😀 I didn’t go with my initial idea of just showing emotion, instead I did a magic themed story though a great deal of my emotion research and colour psychology went towards this. They are […]

Eyes in the garden

Another hilarious shoot today. I have to get a photo where Aria is staring angrily at her mother who is telling her that ‘No, she can not make a love potion’ I wanted to have the focus on Aria but at the same time showing her Mum, all this had to be in a creative […]

The Crystal Ball

The Guardian (aka our chubby cat Skye) is always watching. The moment I spotted my sister sitting with the cats on the lawn I grabbed my camera, dashed outside and found out that at last she was free for a photoshoot. I’m quite happy lying on the grass in sun or rain but she wasn’t […]

Orange Summer – Assignment Three shoot

The two colours I decided to work with next were orange and blue.  They are an interesting combination, they are basically opposites in terms of the emotion and connotations they evoke. Orange is a blend of red and yellow, two of the most powerful colours. They demand attention and it’s easy to see why red […]

How to create a magical cave.

Finally I am making progress on this assignment, I’m aiming to do at least one photo a day. Here is the slinky shoot…actually that doesn’t sound very effective. Ok, here is the Magic Cave shoot. Aria needs to gather the ingrediants for her love potion and what is more magical than a magic cave. Ok, so I […]

Assignment Three Shoot.

Well,  yesterday was definitely different. Standing on an icy winter beach with the vicious wind biting every part of you was definitely an experience especially when I’d brought the wrong colour jumper and my sister and I had to swap, which meant standing on the pier in just a t-shirt while everyone else were wrapped […]

Assignment Three Practise

I am really behind on this assignment, mostly because I did Assignment Five in advance and that really took a long time. Plus my sister is a huge part of this assignment, model wise, but she hasn’t been well at all, poor thing. This morning I just decided to experiment with the colour and the whole […]

Wedding Photos

Here are some of the photos I took for my cousins wedding last month. It was an amazing day and I hope I managed to capture the magic of the day. Let me know what you think 😀

Assignment Three Research

And now it’s onto Assignment Three. I paused it while I was working on assignment five but now I’m ready to start it. I have to say I’m really excited. Originally I was going to follow the brief, photograph what they said, maybe some flowers etc. But the part of my brain that is supposedly […]

Success!

The wedding was a success! It was such a rush of adrenaline and exciting capturing the images of John and Max’s beautiful day. I certainly wasn’t stuck for inspiration as every minute detail of the wedding had been planned out from the pink bows on the back of the chairs, the bouquets of flowers dancing […]

The Day!

Well this is it. The day of the wedding. Sun is shining, yes I can get a blue sky in the photos. I feel slightly nervous, yes I can always choose Plan B but I’ve worked hard on this project and have so many wedding photos on my iPad I think my family are starting […]

Pre-Wedding shoot

I arrived early at the church, a day or so before, to check the location of the church and the venue and also to analyse the light levels so I would be 100% ready with settings and composition ideas. As I arrived the world was drenched in mist and the sky was a perfect white. […]

Plan B and Fast

The wedding is very soon and just as I’m prepared, photography wise and have read every resource on telling stories that I can find, I go and twist a muscle in my side. It’s to do with my m.e so I’m used to it but it couldn’t have come at a worse time. The pain […]

Photography Quotes

While researching for Assignment Five I found this fantastic video by former National Geographic  Director of photographer, David Griffin. He was doing a presentation on how Nat Geo photographers captured their incredible images, some of the things he said really stood out in my mind. It’s well worth a watch – though, like me, if […]

Photographer Study. Annabel Williams.

I first discovered Annabel William’s works in Ian Farrels guide to Digital Photography. I was so taken with her unique images that I instantly signed up to her blog and also wrote to her to say how much I loved her images. I was so pleased when she wrote back giving me great feedback about […]

Assignment Five. Research

Well the wedding is creeping ever closer, I’ve been researching everything I can for the past few weeks and I think I’m almost ready. I guess I’ll find out on the actual day. I’ve been experimenting with settings and have purchased a nice flash, Canon Speedlite which I’ll be able to use in low light […]
