Some More Messing About.

A Little Photomontage.

Just a little bit of messing around I did to test some thing.

First Photo Shoot Done.

I did my first photo shoot yesterday with help from my willing model Kate, many thanks to her for being a star and helping me out. It went very well once everything was set up and we knew what we were doing, we shot for about an hour until my memory card was full.

I then went home to sift though around 150 pictures and pull out some useful ones. I did a little editing in Photoshop and now have around 20 images I can use in my Dream project work. I will put up 3/4 images I think came out well.

Part of my t-shirt design

This is just part of an image I have produced so for a t-shirt design thats eventually going to be based on the theme of "hope" but produced to appeal to skaters/bikers and new age travelers.

Nearing completion.

This is my youth project nearing completion, I focused more on the music industry since a lot of youth culture is based around that, and the fact it was mentioned in the brief. I tried to stay clear of using characters in the image to avoid stereotyping any particular trends/fashions. Still some work to go, but I'm happy with the over all concept .

Just a little something.

This is just one of the small sketches I came up with for a project based on promoting youth to be creative, this is probably one of my favorites so I thought I would share it. I have been experimenting with trying to work more loosely in my sketching and drawing to see where it takes me...

This is how I waste time warming up.

Just to let you all know how I like to waste a good 5 mins when I start working, by drawing some nondescript scene with no relevance to anything, but I find it loosens me up a little, so I guess it works for me :]

Experimenting with some panorama

So I decided to mess around trying to do some panorama work, ended up staying up until the early hours messing around, but I'm fairly pleased with my first attempt. I'll be trying out some different variations very soon.

Future thoughts.

After receiving some feedback from my tutors I have decided, since I'm going to be using photography for the bulk of my image work, to book some time in the photography studios. This will allow me to work with some more adequate lighting in a controlled environment, thus giving me some more scope to play around.

I also need to find a model for the portrait shoots, who i quote "should be interesting" to photograph. Any takers? :P

Some off topic work

This is from another project I'm currently working on which is based around a book on maths puzzles and that kind of thing.

Trial Images

Kicking everything off.

Hello everyone, this is my first ever blog, so please be gentle with me :]

I have started this blog to coincide with one of my projects, and I hope it will be something that can add to, and help me focus on my work. Any advice and constructive criticism greatly appreciated.

So first off, a little information about the project. I will be using photography, as the basis to a series of images based around human emotion and feeling. I intend to manipulate and compose these images digitally, mainly to give me a lot of freedom to experiment, but also to improve my digital skills.

I have attempted a few trial images the last week or two on some snaps I took around my studio, just to try and work up some interesting working techniques. some are more successful than others:
