I actually like doing photography :D

hello, I've recently finished my first term of the 2nd year of my course in Art & Design and I got to do Photography, so I'm going to tell you a bit about it an show you what I did for it. For this project I was introduced to the traditional SLR camera, which uses black & white film and develop it and print my photos. I also got to use a Digital SLR camera which allowed for more trial and error and allowed to take pictures colour and to print them through a computer rather than in the more complex way in a dark room.

It was a lot of fun taking pictures with a Digital SLR camera, especially when it came to using a Macro Lens where I got some great pictures of things really close-up. I have a lot of outdoor photos and studio photos that I took for my initial experimenting with the Digital SLR camera and the Macro lens but the photos I would take for my exhibition piece on 'Looking Through'.

I really liked how the macro lens gave me even enhanced close-ups, bringing out all the little details and textures on the surface. So I looked at trees and there variety in surfaces on the tree bark. I took numerous photos but narrowed them down to just 24 photos which I would arrange to become a whole tree, this is how they would be composed in the exhibition of our class photography work. 
Below is my photos in there arrangement, the last 3 are what it would look like on a wall like if they were on display (I foolishly didn't take a picture of them in there exhibition so I set them up at home). 

After this post I have put up some slide shows of these photos and other photos I have taken during this project. I hope you enjoy and appreciate them. :D  U can find them at the bottom of the blog page with another slide show I did a while back.

The first of many :D

Hi guys, Since I started this blog I have been showing my college work as I do it in updates.... I left the whole summer break period blank when really shouldn't have lol my bad. Though there isn't a lot to share but there definitely something to share all the same.

After my first year I decided I needed to get back into drawing again like I use to do when I was younger, I used to always be drawing something from the age of ten but at some Point when I moved onto do media btec at college that stopped, but now that I'm back doing art I want to do what I always loved which is to draw and hopefully turn that into a career.

Anyway starting with this post I am going to post drawings that I've done past and present. First I have my most recent drawing that I had been working on most recently and finished august of this year while I was on holiday at my cousins house in Scotland. I will also show the process I went through in sketches before I came to a final conclusion and where it might go next, because I'm not sure I finished yet but we will see. After this post you will see more of my drawings that I have done in the past that I am particularly proud of and when I start producing new characters, you will see them too.... enjoy :D
