Taste, Expression.

Latest brief from college, my contribution...

My word is expression.
Our facial expressions are mostly determined by the use of eyebrows. I thought it would be interesting to take away the eyebrows in certain facial expressions. And here's what it looks like. Kinda freaky.



I think this one of Lee will probably be my final image.



And my Taste picture. I dunno. The first thing I thought of for taste, were of course tongues. Here I've dyed the tongue different colours where different taste buds are. (like for sweet, sour, etc, also, I realise its not exactly where the taste buds are and stuff, and there is extra colours but you know, it looks nice.)



Some people might think its a little simple, but I dunno, I didn't really wanna get bogged down with developing it loads.



Well, Obviously it isn't. But for the day at Focus 09 it was. I hadn't put my name down on the list, and stole Sam's place because she didn't go. Not many people did go actually. Only me, Lee, Eilert, Greta and Merlin did. It was quite fun actually. Saw a lot of things I really, really wanted. But of course can't afford to, as I can barely afford to live at the minute. But my god, the things I want...
Like a lens baby. Seriously, if anyone really loves me/wants to get me an early birthday present, a lensbaby composer lens would be perfect. (It's only £150 mum ;), if you are reading this.)

Really, really, really want it. I know I could get the same effects in photoshop etc. etc. As Lee likes to keep pointing out, but its just not the same!



So lovely.
Heres a couple of shots of Lee from the day anyway, I took quite a few more, but didn't really like them.



Me and Lee playing with shutter speeds on the way home ;)



And Lee, with a little bit of photoshop on his eyes to make them look pretty.

Stanley Park


Me and Lee were having a pretty boring Sunday. So we decided to go out and play with our cameras.
This is only the second time I've ever been to Stanley Park, and I've decided that Blackpool is far too cold for short shorts. But I'm going to carry on wearing them anyway. It gives me something to complain about, and I do enjoy complaining.
Stanley Park is quite nice. Possibly the only nice place in Blackpool. Minus the beach. I sort of like the beach. Reminds me of Cleethorpes, only you don't have to walk for 5 miles before you see the sea. Only right now its far too cold to even go near the beach, I hate the wind here.
Stanley park reminds me a little bit of Normanby Hall back home. Only if you maybe replaced the geese for peacocks and put deer in it instead of a boating lake. So it's really nothing like Normanby Hall. I'm seriously homesick, and I think it's making me delusional.




Played about with these two in photoshop. Not sure how keen I am on the second one though.


This isn't a very good photo. Me and lee realised how hard it is to actually photograph animals today. They just move so much! How do I get them to keep still?
But anyway, like I said, not a very good photo, I just like geese. I want one as a pet. Are you allowed to keep geese as pets?

Hurray!

Fiiiinally. I have a camera.
It's a very lovely Canon EOS 30D that I got off eBay pretty cheap. I'm so happy. I got a new tripod too so at some point (maybe when Blackpool isn't cold, does that ever happen?) I'm gonna go out to the beach again at night and maybe get Josh to do some more long exposures with me because they are pretty. Not with a torch this time though, I have a different plan involving some wire wool...

Anyway, one of the first picutres I have taken with this new camera - Lee looking a little bit upset that I'm bothering him.



I can't wait to take out some lenses and stuff from college and have a proper play about with everything. So exciiiting. Yay.
