Hi everyone!

As part of my photography course, I have to track my development on a blog. The posts from September 2011 until January 2012 are part of a module called Project Management, for which I was required to work in a group of eight students to create an exhibition. The blog followed every step we took in order to create a successful gallery. The blog posts starting from September 2012 follow my final year on the course. I'll be documenting my research and analysis of my final year projects, as well as include notes of my Professional Practice unit - which prepares us for a range of post graduate options. Finally it also looks at a project called New Creatives, where I'll be working alongside an artists to help college students get more involved with art.

Large Format Shoot

For some reason I was unable to create a contact sheet in Bridge, so I just took a snapshot of the photos. The first four pictures were taken on the first shoot and the last 5 were taken on the second shoot. As you can see one of them is messed up. This is because I didn’t close the film holder properly, I didn’t think that light had come in, but obviously it did. Luckily I took 3 woodland photos, so it’s not that big of a problem. I scanned the images in on 2040ppi.

Scanning was quite difficult because the last time I used to scanner was in the first year for the workshop. I tried to get the colours right, but it was quite tricky for some of them. I have had to do little edits to some of the photos, but luckily most of them turned out fine.

I am incredibly happy having done a large format shoot, but I’m not too happy with all of the photos. I like the chopped down areas and the woodland, and the final photo, but I don’t like the heathland photos or the first overgrown photo. I think for my final project I’d like to combine both digital and large format in order to get the best result.
