Blaenau Ffestiniog

I lived in Blaenau ffestiniog in the summer of 2016 for work. I actually thought the town was quit boring apart from the Zip World site and the Down hill biking centre. it constantly rains in Blaenau ffestiniog,  so it always looks quite gloomy there apart from when it snows and all the slate is covered in beautiful white powder.

I now do not live in Blaenau ffestiniog and I had always seen some beautiful images of the mountain and some beautiful walks that are in Blaenau ffestiniog. I went back to visit the town to take some photographs for my next college project and I was taken up into the queries in Tan-y-Grisiau where I found this beautiful landscape and  old slate buildings. I did not get to spend much time taking images up there but I cant wait to go back and visit and take some more photographs (maybe in some better weather)

Cardiff

I have Visited Cardiff quite a lot recently and haven’t had the time to post my pictures from my travels.

Cardiff is one of my most favourite places to visit but unfortunately I never take the time to snap away and focus on the little important things I see that would make a good photography.

Next time I visit the City I plan to take a lot more images and capture the beauty I see.

 

 

Countryside Rebels

I Liked this image I have captured and just wanted to share it. I feel like it shows the true meaning to a Countryside Rebel for the kids who don’t hang around on the streets and who prefer to live the adventurous side that snowdonia has to offer. I captured these two subject walking across a farm gate using it as a slackline.

Don’t tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass

For this project we where given quotes to make a 3 minuet video piece. The video Piece had to be based on a quote. I had chosen a quote by Anton Chekov

“don’t tell me the moon is shinning; show me the glint of light on broken glass”

I chose this quote as I was instantly inspired and thought this would be a great opportunity to work with low light and bokeh. This video had to be created in an abstract way to create a unique piece. I was also inspired by “blink 182 Always” music video

Man and the Forest

I have now had a bit of practice with film work as my current project in Foundation Art is digital story telling, for this project we where taken to Coed-Y-Brenin. We where told to create a film that lasted 30 seconds and to capture what coed-Y-Brenin.

Coed-Y-Brenin is a popular forest park. It is popular for its mountain bike trails and hiking paths. I wanted to capture how  man and the forest have come together.

Fun on the Climbing wall

I shot this image for a Climb and Dine, we wanted to try out and interesting way to advertise this event so we set up tables and chairs onto the wall all safely secure. I enjoyed shooting this image and is very different to the rest of the images I take as it was a lot more laid back and was not as serious as my other shoots
