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.

5 Thinking Hats

·         Landscape project
·         Different more abstract approach
·         Technology – people blurring images
·         Motion blur, abtract paint like process
o   Nick Knight Flora
o   Doug Chinnery
·         Horsell Common & Chobham Common
·         Use blur to create more abstract painterly projects
·         Photos amazing
·         Conceptual part might need some thought
·         Beautiful – remind me of Hockneys iPad drawings
·         Very nice – better than Chris’s so far
·         Potential
·         Look at history of paintings
·         Interesting – ambiguous
·         Looks fresh
·         Like the pictures
Creative Ideas:
·         Could have the photos painted
·         Have them huge
·         Shoot a blurred timelapse
·         Research what is out there
·         Put your own stamp on it
·         Experiment with abstractions – other mediums
·         Explore now as an interesting time to be making pictures
·         Use the medium format digital
·         Try a 5x4 version
Critical Thinking:
·         Be aware of the “amateur” experimentation with photography
·         The technical ease could make it more familiar
·         Experiment with location, different spaces
·         How you mount & present them is very important
·         Use the camera in different ways
·         Try zooming in and out
·         Make it not just a technical exercise
·         Do a lot of research
·         Try different techniques
·         “in camera movement”
·         For next time – show a few different ways of displaying work
