Last year I did a short brief based on macro photography, which I love. I enjoyed shooting macro shots and decided to capture my friends cat as the brief also revolved around nature photography. I love macro photography because it allows the viewer to see what the naked eye sometimes can’t see and it also helps creates some amazing images.
I took this photograph whilst doing a project in college this year, which was based around ‘People, places and a brooding city’. This was one of my final images which I composed of Hull. I decided to incorporate lots of different places from Hull into one image, I also chose to include a photograph of the Humber Bridge which was photographed at night, therefore I was able to capture the lights! I love photography and hope to carry on loving it for the rest of my life.
I recently shot this image for my college project which is based around studio photography. I have had to compose at least one photo shoot which is situated around food. I decided to shoot ‘Food for occasions’, which consists of my shoot being Christmas themed. I am really enjoying photographing food at the moment because it all about attention to detail and trying to use other props to an extent to compose good food photography.
I am now in my second year of college and I have just finished a project on ‘People, Places and a Brooding city’ this consisted of a lot of architectural photography, which I loved photographing and learning about, but one section in my project focused on double exposure images and combining people and places into one image. I’m afraid I don’t have a camera that allows me to create double exposure images in camera, so i decided to create my using Photoshop. The model in my image is my brother who also writes a blog but about travelling. The other photograph used in this image was taken in my home town Hull.
This photograph was taken a while ago for college. We had to create different ghosting effects using a slow shutter speed. I liked this one out of all the photographs we took because it can be relatable with people in life today, the ghost could symbolise problems, stress or just your mood at a certain point in the day. It also shows that these problems wont turn up unless you’re looking for them, almost like ghosts.
I took this picture at about 4:00pm today. This sunset was really unexpected and spontaneous as it was raining the whole day, but it was really good to see some brightness at the very end of the day. I love the colours incorporated in the sunset like the darkish purple then the burst of bright orange/peach and then at the very end the hint of clear blue sky. I think these colours really contrast each other well. The fact that I didn’t have to edit this picture to brighten up the colours at all makes me love the picture even more. The fact that the photo didn’t need to be edited makes me love it even more.
Today I had my first day at college. We didn’t do much as we’re just getting into the swing of things but I took this picture, I thought I’d take a picture in monochrome for a change as most of my pictures are usually bright and colourful. I like the college far more than my secondary school already because it’s more laid back and everyone has at least one thing in common, which is our love for photography. This year is going to be a good year.
This was one of my favourite temples in Bagan, Burma/Myanmar and that’s a big statement because there were so many temples that we went to look at, each and every one of them was beautiful and sacred. This was my favourite because of the entrance and it allowed you to go through tight passageways and experience a breathtaking view from the top of the temple.
