Final Exercise. Rain

I absolutely love rain, I know it’s strange, it damages cameras, stops everything but it doesn’t have to have you running for cover. In fact I’m usually the one standing in the rain though not for long because of my asthma and health but if I was 100% cured I’d definitely be the one out […]

Illustration by Symbols.

This part of the course required me to think of some symbols and the possibilities surrounding each one. Nature is something that represents so many things from growth to life. Colours especially can always add to the hidden meanings or even obvious ones as you can see in my colour research study. Here I must […]

A Narrative Picture Essay

Inspiration

Today on Google there is a link to a new Trek¬†on the Google Earth/Street View. Intrigued I went to it and saw this about the Great Pyramids of Giza. I scrolled down four times until I reached the ‘Digging for Truth’ I’ve not stopped staring at it.¬†http://www.google.com/maps/about/behind-the-scenes/streetview/treks/pyramids-of-giza/ I love how the five clips brilliantly and […]

Exercise. Higher and Lower Sensitivity

I had to take several photos on high and lower¬†sensitivity by using different ISO on an overcast day when light level, subject movement or depth of field was only just possible¬†. It just so happened that as I set off to do exactly that the sun came out. And it stayed for several weeks. Which […]

Exercise- Variety with a low sun

Low Sun Due to my health and the fact that sunset is even later than it was before so I have next to no chance to be able to go and photograph them. However, there is no way I am missing them but I won‚Äôt use older photos either. My tutor, Sam Henderson suggested I […]

Mythology Study

Greek Mythology Interpretations of Greek Mythology art. My tutor suggested I look at the role of art in Greek Mythology and see how it visually tells a story.

Beautiful Long Exposure Photography

Artist Study: Fiona Crisp/Long Exposure/Pinhole Photography

My tutor recommended that I studied several different photographers and the one I was most inspired by was ‘Fiona Crisp’ ¬†She captures incredible large scale photographs of subjects that are not only different to look upon, but also quite sinister. The places she choses are¬†those with dark or powerful histories, they evoke the mood suiting […]

Measuring Exposure Part 1. (high key and low key photography)

For the first exercise I need to take four to six photos where each one is deliberately lighter or darker than average. Photos that are lighter are known as high key and darker images are low key. I’m going to start by looking at high key images. High key photography gives a positive, lighter feeling. […]

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 […]

Interview – Kiara Vestigium

Artist study

Cass Bird¬†http://www.cassbird.com/portfolio.php?cat=12 I love her photography, it captures such an abundance of emotions, happiness, laughter, loneliness, contemplation and each photo is brought to live vividly through colour, lighting composition and the raw emotion on the models faces.¬†Bringing together a clash of culture from the Masai women on the beach jumping with sheer joy with the […]

Diana Marokosian

Diana Marokosian Diana is a photographer like no other. Her¬†photography tells stories, vivid, powerful and very emotional stories that penetrate your very soul. Sometimes when you look at a photo you find this¬†inner stillness and everything around you fails to matter for those several moments as you enter a new world. In some ways it […]

Artist Study

One thing I need to improve in my learning log is the amount of photographer studies. At the moment there are only a handful, I need to analyse more of their work, analyzing their technique, their artistic voice¬†and also to be able to successfully to describe the overall effect the image has on you. I […]
