Taking inspiration

In my world as a photography teacher we have recently begun the GCSE Externally Set Assignment or exam wherein one of the featured starting points was ‘Texture’.

Taking inspiration from the theme itself and the artists listed I took along my macro kit for this weekends dog walk. Below are a few of the shots from this photo walk.

Camera Obscura

The Camera Obscura is an ancient concept of a darkened room with an opening allowing light to pass through.  This light projects the outside world upside down and back to front and in all its glory on the walls inside the camera.

Andrew has been refining his practice of making and documenting camera obscuras and examples can be seen below.

A crowdfunding page has been established to explore funding this project: https://www.gofundme.com/obscura-cityscapes-of-portsmouth

Experimenting with crystal

Funny how even after over 15 years of being a photographer there are methods and techniques I’ve never tried.

Recently I saw a students work where he had experimented with a crystal ball to make creative photographs. So I got my own and tried it out!

Can’t wait to try it at different locations on bright days!

First Wedding Meeting of 2018!

Today was my first wedding meeting of 2018, a great young couple tieing the knot only the week after next.  It brought me to realising that I’ve never actually blogged many of my wedding photographs and so here are a set from last summer between Mark and Rachel.

Been wanting to shoot this location for ages!
