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
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 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.
I am not to good when it comes to film work. I am studying Foundation Art, for this project we where given the title “a day in the life of a college student” and where told to make a video on this title.
I was inspired by “The Walking Dead” intro. As I wanted to show my college life as if i was living in the Zombie apocalypse
I have traveled to many places, and Brussels is one of my favourite cities I have seen so far. The architecture in Brussels is beautiful some buildings are a bit strange but yet amazing like the Atomium. There is so much photograph. I visited many galleries on my trip to Brussels such as the Royal Museums of Fine Arts, Comic Strip Center
