City Rooms shoot

This is a sad tale of how a young(ish), girl with, possibly misplaced, hopes of being a photographer can truly ruin a good shoot.  Clumsiness and forgetfulness are a bad combination it seems, but I've tried to save something from the shoot of misfortune. Here goes...

More to follow...if I don't throw my computer out of the window first.

Things to come...

I need to use this more...and post more work instead of obsessing about it and never letting it see the light of day. So in the spirit of that, here is an unfinished NEW photo that I'm seriously undecided on. More to come...

No idea if I actually feel good about this or not. It's just not what it was in my head.

Just some nothingy filler

I am currently artistically barren, many due to working every day for the past few weeks and not being in the creative oasis of the studio...but I have taken a few photos. Nothing groundbreaking; nothing very good even, but it is something.

Ideas for MA work

I know that I definitely want to continue with the work I started towards the end of my degree, but the question is, well, how exactly? (This is of course dependent on me finding the money to do my Masters, which is another and extremely frustrating story). I need to brainstorm and just start SHOOTING, but it is apparantly harder than it seems when you are both model-less and brainless.  I found this website about a rather fabulous woman that has inspired me slightly, and now I'm playing with ideas of creating a complete fake persona and shooting their 'history'.  I particularly loved this photo:

the slight air of haughtiness intrigues me, but I'm worried the idea could be a little stale.

Hmmm, thinking cap on!

(and desperate pleas to uni to allow me to continue for free...might work?!)

I've finally got round to posting some images from my Degree show exhibition. It was an amazing show, and the art on show was truly great!
