This was a bit of a collaboration between Josh and me. We all suddenly had an urge to go to the beach, and I decided taking a torch and doing some long exposures in front of the sea would be quite fun. This was all thought up before Alan gave us the optional Light brief for college, but I decided not to submit it because its a little cliche for a brief called 'Light'
It looks pretty anyway.

We started off by me spinning around on the spot, moving the torch up and down.

Then we just did some squiggles...

Eventually we decided it might be a good idea for someone else to run around me.
Here it looks like a frog :3

And here is Josh running around me again.

Lastly, a little bit of a contribution from Lee...


Here's a little of the Lomography I've been doing since I've been here.
I first saw Lomography at the National Media Museum in Bradford, and Greta explained to me what its about since she was already interested in it.
I figured it would be a pretty nice way to document my time here, and so that's what I've been doing.
(Though it's a little harder to photograph using it in the winter, because it's not really an indoor camera, and because it's cold, no one wants to go outside! These are mostly from the beginning of term.)
The camera is called an actionsampler by the way, and it's only about £10.

Here is some stuff I've scanned in :

My cat, Apple.

Some pigeons. There is this really sweet looking old man that feeds them. He didn't look too happy about me jumping into them.

Lee, outside TK Maxx

Lee eating some KFC

Blackpool Tower.

Jumping on the bandwagon

Okay. Decided to make a blog along with everyone else. Could be interesting? Possibly not.

I'll start with the first project we did (and have now finished) at college.
I hated everything I photographed (I think a lot of people did), but here are two images I sort of liked, but they didn't make the final piece because I didn't think they fitted with the brief very well, which was documenting the lives and culture of people of Blackpool.

Here's Greta eating some candyfloss and not looking all too happy about it. Apparently she was on a diet and couldn't eat it. But she broke the 'diet' about 10 minutes later when we all went for fish and chips around the corner.

And here's Lee, who properly went for the candyfloss.

The reason they didn't make the final piece was because I didn't think that photographing my two housemates was really capturing the lives and culture of the people of Blackpool.
Also, the final pieces had to have been done on colour positive film, and these were done on digital.
