Image Critique + Explanations

This video by Fstoppers features technical, conceptual, and practical responses from Clay Cook on the submitted images. The responses and explanations for their image choices are really interesting and insightful for crafting my own style for this years’ project.

Looking Ahead

Some words of wisdom from Canadian photographer Lisa Bettany as we venture into the year ahead.
Capture the photographs you love, don’t be pressures by the ‘popular’ styles of photography.
Be you, love your own work, lets it speak your story and present a piece of yourself through its viewing.Have fun with your camera, the world you’re photographing, and the adventures you’re living.

End of Year Fun

So I haven’t posted in a while as I have been crashing after an amazing year of learning and creativity! I thought while I have a moment I would upload some photos of my work that was displayed at our end of year exhibition Beyond the Edge.

I am so so thankful for all the support I have received from all my wonderful friends and family, along with my wonderful classmates, I am so blessed to be studying alongside such dedicated and talented people. All the advice, encouragement and teaching from my tutors, from this past year has been invaluable, you’re all such role models, and continually inspire me to reach further and higher than ever before.
(Thank you for all your support also, I could not have achieved what I have this past year without you all.)

As I have mentioned in a prior post; I will continue to blog over the holidays from time to time, as I continually research and grow in my photographic journey, (and may it ever continue!).
