It really gets me excited about photography again…
I mean, lately I haven’t had such the enthusiastic approach to photography that I used to. Well I love looking at work, but for my own work I have very little motivation.
But as said in a previous post, I have been visiting a farm in East London. Great little place and I have been enjoying my time there so far. I photographed the farmers market yesterday and I really love some of the results.
Also I’m enjoying photographing recovering ex battery chickens. Talking to one of the workers I found out they have only been at the farm a few weeks but are already showing great signs of healing. It’s wonderful to see.
I would personally like to invite any photography fanatics to an event on Monday the 17th of February
This event is a photography book launch in aid of one of my third year BA modules. We’d love the support of any one who could come!
The details are:
Date: Monday 17th February
Time: 12pm – 4pm
Location: Leytonstone Library
6 Church LN, London, E11 1HG
Event: Photography Book Launch
‘No Borders’, a travel photo book, designed by five aspiring photography students at The University of East London. The photographs presented will raise awareness of countries around the globe, by helping an audience understand the culture that distinguishes them. The viewers can have an insight to the places they have never been before, but hope to go one day, after coming across No Borders.
If any one out there is thinking of coming, I’d love to hear any comments either on this post, or over at the events blog page: No Borders Photographers
Like it is so much fun, I could stay at one for hours, just exploring
These are a couple of images from my first visit to Stepney City Farm, and it was great. I was only capturing animals at this point but I intend to expand to photographing the wonderful people who work and volunteer there as well.
The squirrel isn’t part of the farm but it looked so cute with an acorn stuffed in its mouth that I had to try to photograph it. (:
This is hopefully going to now be my final project for my year 3 BA, and I feel like it’s going well so far..
At the risk of being totally soppy, I won’t mention my boyfriend too much…
But I did have a wonderful time with him, and wouldn’t have had the opportunity to go to Paris if it wasn’t for him being an amazing architecture student!
We mostly walked around Paris apart from our trip to a little town outside of the city called Clichy Sous Bois (sp?) and also apart from one trip on the metro after we couldn’t be bothered to repeat the hour and a half walk back from the Eiffel tower to the hotel. We were completely exhausted after that.
We were staying in a great little hotel just a 20 minute walk from the Pompidou centre where we saw a camel..randomly. We also went for a visit to the Notre Dame, as you must do whilst in Paris.
There was this interesting experience that was quite surreal when a little bit drunk.. quite literally hundreds of Santas on motor bikes, held up traffic for my guess a good 20 odd minutes. Given my state of drunkenness and total amusement, I was quite pleased with how the below picture turned out.
The gardens outside the Louvre are just as beautiful as I remember them from when I was previously in Paris about 6 years ago.
Think i’m getting worse at this talking thing?!
But onto talking about Paris…
In December, I was treated to a trip to Paris with my lovely boyfriend just before christmas, who needed to go for a site visit in Clichy Sous Bois (sp??) for his masters in architecture. And whilst on said site visit I took this picture of him which I really love and personally think it’s a great image. Feel free to tell me otherwise! (:
More Paris photos to follow.
I really do seriously love my 50mm lens
So these weren’t in the studio or anything, but I’m pleased with how they look. They are test images for my university project which is going to be heavily influenced by expressionist artists. This really is a test shoot, so there isn’t any rhyme or reason to how I have painted the face of my house mate, or how I photographed him in relation to the reasoning behind the project.
