Today I have handed in my first university project. I must say That I am really happy with the images that I have created.
I focused on Love as a subject, as the brief I was given was “relationship”. In these images, I have used my self and my other half, I had the opportunity to capture our love and how we care for each other in an image. I have captured this before in selfies where we are happy with smiles and laughter. but in these images, I have captured our love as an art.
I am currently doing my first University Project. The first project we have been given is Relationship. For my first set of photos, I have decided to focus on my relationship with my body.
I have captured these images showing the struggle that society has put on me.
As a woman, it is hard to learn to love your body as society constantly tells you should look like “this”, and once you have become what society wants you to be.. it changes again. but what I have recently learnt is that you shouldn’t care what other people think, your body is beautiful no matter the shape and size. as long as if you’re healthy it doesn’t matter, You don’t need to base your weight goal, on these images
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)
In this project I have decided to look into the detail of skin as there are many different textures on one personas body and there is so much detail. This time I have focused on my own skin, the freckles on my neck and jaw, and the detail on my lips and my hands and ears and wrist as they all tell a personal story about me. this is what makes me an unique person.
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.
I wanted to create a new project over the winter to keep me occupied until it is warmer to continue shooting more self portraits
In this project I have decided to look into the detail of skin as there are many different textures on one personas body and there is so much detail. I have shot my models ribs, spine, hands (with Chalk), and stomach. I would like to focus more on skin and shoot with different models.
the Isle of man is a second home to me. for such a small island it is beautiful place and would definitely recommend visiting there. TT weeks is my favourite time to go as the island is so full of life but unfortunately as i am a student I cannot visit the island during TT week as it is held the same weeks as exams are. I have visited the Island many times but this was the first time I put more passion in taking photos of the island. I captured many stunning images but I have chosen to present my favourite black and white images that I captured. My Favourite place to visit on the island is the Milners tower at Bradda Head, I enjoyed this place for the view and for the sea Cliff edges and is a perfect place to photograph.
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
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
