I set up many many sweets on table outside, and filled a mixing bowl with white paint and water (not wanting to waste the milk!) I then got Ollie to dive his head into the bowl to create a big splash, this took many attempts and a warm shower for him afterwards.
My Own Images.
I found some old photos of my school and experimented with the dear photograph style.
To develop this idea, I printed the photos out again and burnt through them. I then photocopied them onto acetate so that when I held them up to the buildings the new and the old combined together .
This first time I have had the opportunity to use black and white film and a medium format camera. I love the quality of film and the square format of 120mm.
I was inspired by the Toast Catalogues October collection. I loved the photos, the western style, the story that is told through the images.
On a very windy and bright day I went out on the farm with two of my good friends. The conditions where challenging but perfect for black and white, I am planning a follow up over the christmas break.
I came across Werningʼs work whilst researching for my A-Level. These recreations are witty and poignant.
I have started my own collection with family and friends.
I was inspired by a photograph that was taken by Olivia Bee of herself. What I love the most about this image is the fact that she has painted her own back and the way the flowers are almost creeping out of her dress. I like the way each section of the photograph relates to the other both in colour palate and imagery, the focal point of the photo is the cross that links her dress with her back.
I would make adjustments if I were to do this shot again. I would make a better relationship between the painting on the models back and her hair and clothing.
I am interested in the idea of not being able to see a person’s face in an image. And so to follow on I have started to take a series of images where the back is the main focus.
This photograph by Francesca Woodman has inspired me to take my own.
I chose a rural setting and instead of a textural background I used the high contrast of the winter landscape.
