I have focused the dreaming series on my emotions I like being lonely and I am often told to stop being so Distant or to stop day dreaming. I am just in my own world.
I focused these image on my lonely side. I have captured my self feeling lost and cold like a bad Dream, I have been washed up on beach and don’t know what to do or where to go. wanting to be loved but yet there so far away. all I can do is hope for there return. to pick me up from this gloomy place. This is just a Dream
why a self portrait ?
I have used my Self in these images as it is always challenge finding a model when I need them, I was inspired by photographer Miss Aniela for her self-portrait work as she also struggled to find models to photograph. I fell in love with her work and the way she has photographed her self in different locations and how she multiplies her self

Photoshop can be quite easy when you are just editing the brightness, contrast, shadows, etc. but when it comes to merging 2 images together its not that easy .
Here I have created a skull using 2 different animals, a rabbit and a sheep. I created this piece for my A-level art work. I did not go any further with merging skulls as I continued to work with my ram skull.
I have an Instagram page you are welcome to follow https://www.instagram.com/photographing_jodie/
I do post images a lot quicker on Instagram than I do on here. using my blog I try to go more into depth about my images and I like to use this space as an online portfolio
I have posted a lot of my climbing photographs. I want to show more of an artistic side to my work.
This is my Dreaming series, where I have created Self portraits. I have used my Self in these images as I am often full of Photo ideas, but it always seems to be a challenge finding a model when I need them, and I did not want my inspiration to run low. I was feeling very artistic and grabbed my Camera and tripod and started shooting these images.
In these images I have used a nude like body suit to give my self nude look. I have found it a lot better using this outfit as it gives the image a basic look as using another outfit such as a dress or more colourful clothing would be more distracting. I feel like the body suite am wearing gives more shape to my self as a subject

I am not to keen on bouldering outdoors as the boulder problems can get a bit tricky. I am not very good when it comes to bouldering I definitely prefer my lead climbing, As my boyfriend is a very good climber he loves having a personal photographer follow him around so I have to take my camera with me when ever we go out for a climb . I love taking photos of climbers and this has to be one of my favourites (I have so many favourites). I love this image for its detail of the chalk flying in the air as the chalky hands slaps the boulder. Unfortunately I lost the coloured version of this image but the black & white effect has added a lot more detail that you couldn’t see with the coloured image
Lots of Yellow
Prague was full of amazing Architecture,but this bright yellow building caught my eye as it was next to a grey dull building.
I had a wet and really cold week In Prague, but this yellow building made me feel warm, like summer was near with the colourful plastic windmills making me feel a lot warmer
Location: Beacon Climbing Centre
I caught this climber pulling the best gameface, and this has to be one of my favourite shots I have caught whilst shooting climbing competitions. I had photographed many climbers that day but as the day went on the climbs got harder and I was lucky enough to catch this climber in the right moment pulling the best game face I have seen.
THE BEACON BOULDER JAM EVENTS HAVE BEEN BRILLIANT NIGHTS FULL OF ENTHUSIASTIC AND SUPPORTIVE CLIMBERS.
The great thing about these events is that they are non competitive competitions and any climbing abilities can enter, the event is more about the enjoyment.
A must attend event for everyone!

DEAD INSIDE was a project I worked on last year for my A-level Art coursework.
The idea behind the project was to hide my subjects face as it creates a creepy atmosphere with a lot of mystery to my images.
I worked with many objects to cover my subjects face. I initially used a gas mask from WWII and I am very fond of the images that I produced. However I then went on to use a ram skull and I imediatley fell in love with the images that I had produced. I loved the gloomy look of these images and this is how I came up with the project DEAD INSIDE. I then created the ‘Box Heads‘ which I used with the ram skull by merging them together to create my final piece, a short film. (box head film)
