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.

John Miller

I emailed John Miller regarding is forests series (see "set brief project") and this is what he replied:

Hi Elaine

Sorry for the slow response but quite busy at the moment.

Glad you like the trees. It is all done in camera, the only software involved is Lightroom where I might tweak the levels a bit.
I have been taking these shots for quite a few years now and have refined the technique. Its really about time of day, season,
weather and what you point the camera at. When selling in galleries it helps to be able to say that it is not software which can devalue the piece.
I tend to shoot my landscapes at short notice depending on the weather and work pretty much on my own. However I will bear you in mind if I get any
commissioned landscapes from people like the National Trust.

By the way nice work on your site.

There was a short video about my work on the Advocate site http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v90dIKGcIEs
