I haven’t posted much in a while but I am going to start posing again regularly but I haven’t posted much of my climbing work recently I spent most of My summer following around Climber Zed Oliver-Jones around some of north wales best boulders.
I am slowly adding some of my climbing photographs https://www.ukclimbing.com/photos/author.html?id=224062
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
Times have changed
YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!
Its my 4th week of my final project in foundation Art. For my Final project I am woking with nature as a subject. and each week I use a different form of Photography
All these Images are taken on my mobile phone. I hate using my mobile to take images as I just don’t feel comfortable using it as I have a High quality camera and I feel more commutable using my canon so I wanted to step outside my comfort zone and use my mobile to take some interesting shots.
In these Images I have used a micrascope capturing Leaves and flower petals. I like the veins I have captured on the petals and leafs. I wanted to focus on something that we never really notice showing the beauty and the details that these plants have and we do not give them the respect they deserve as they are powerful and beautiful.
What is a Cyanotype ?
A Cyanotypes is a photographic printing process and these images are made without a camera. the paper for this process is dipped into chemicals which react to UV light. I placed the flowers on top of paper and then placed them under the UV lamp for 3 minuets. when the paper is removed from underneath the UV lamp the area that has been exposed to light is a grey colour and the area which has not been exposed to light is a yellow colour which is the chemicals that haven’t been exposed to light. what is interesting about Cyanotypes it can be placed under the uv lamp again if you want to add more detail to where you placed the objects so a laced piece of fabric would work really well to add more detail. once your print is ready it is placed into water to wash off the yellow chemical. this the makes the print no longer sensitive to UV light.
and this is the end result
I have now started my final project in foundation art. For my Final project I am woking with nature as a subject. each week I will be working with a different form of photography.
here I have created Cyanotypes. this was my first time on creating Cyanotypes and this is one of my new favourite forms of photography as it is so simple but yet it creates a stunning interesting image just like my love for photograms. what I like about Cyanotypes more is that you don’t need a Dark room and it is much more healthier for the environment, as I can use the Sun light to develop the Cyanotypes. but for these images I used a UV Lamp as it is much more quicker process
What is a Photogram?
A photogram is a photographic image made without a camera. which is created in a photographic dark room. I placed the flowers on top of Light sensitive papper and then shined a light on-to the paper for 4 seconds. the paper is then placed into chemicals to make the image appear and to make it no longer sensitive to light.
and this is the end result
I have now started my final project in foundation art. For my Final project I am woking with nature as a subject.
here I have created Photograms and this is one of my favourite forms of photography as it is so simple but yet it creates a stunning interesting image and I love the developing process.
As my current subject is nature I have worked with flowers. I like the effect the flowers petals have created as the light has leaked through them.
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.
I have captured my self in a rainy landscape to emphasise a bad Dream, as I live in North Wales where the rain never stops, creating a gloomy, moody atmosphere and I wanted to capture how hard it can be to be joyful in such a cold, wet, cloudy, landscape. I am representing defeat with my body language in these images, and the struggle to raise my head, and to not be staring at the muddy ground, I am often told to stop daydreaming. I am just in my own world. Trying to forget about the rain, trying to daydream about the blue sky and green fields and not cold, wet, grey clouds. and this is just a dream, Once I raise my head I can see the rain fading away and that this storm won’t last forever. I can’t admit to defeat doesn’t matter how lonely or lost I feel there is always some sunshine in North Wales. this is just a dream.
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.
