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.

Melbourne Royal Botanic Gardens

The Royal Botanic Gardens are located just next to the Shrine, so again very close to my flat. The first time I went to the botanic gardens was for Christmas, we had a lovely summer picnic! The botanic gardens are free to enter so it's a great place to go on a sunny day and spend the day in the park.

The photo to the left is my favourite place in the botanic gardens, just just on top of a hill overlooking a pond and the rest of the gardens.

For Christmas I received some Moonlight Cinema tickets from my boyfriends stepsister. The Moonlight cinema is an open air cinema in the botanic gardens. The screen is actually set up on the hill opposite of where I'm sitting, on the other side of the pond.  We went to see Delivery Man, which started just after sunset. If you look closely to the photo on the right you can see a building sticking out just above the middle of the screen. That's the Eureka building in central Melbourne, the tallest building in the southern hemisphere. During the film there were a whole bunch of bats screeching over our heads. It was kind of creepy but an amazing sight!

 The botanic gardens are beautiful and I've visited it quite a few times for time lapses and videos. Here are some pretty pics! I've also created a video with my new slider of the gardens. Best watched in HD full screen.
