For one of our projects we’re making books and I want a thin material to go inbetween the pages. I can’t decide between them!! >.<
yesterday I was at a shop called ‘The Range’ and I was in the arts and crafts section looking at watercolour paper. They were selling watercolour postcards! So you could paint onto the postcard and on the back was an area to write your letter and address. I was going to buy them but I’m not great at painting so what if I started painting on them and ruined them!?? eurgh. You only got 15 or something for about £3.50 so I didn’t bother :c
I can’t actually contain how excited I am about starting this evening course in October. I want to gain as many skills and such that I can before leaving uni, I’m going into my second year but still unsure of what awaits me after graduation. Is it food or photography I want to continue? Do I want to work with magazines in the Photography area, reviews of shows and artists like my theory tutor does or carry on as an artist?
It wasn’t so much the ‘creative’ side of this course I was so interested in. Don’t get me wrong, I would love to go into writing fiction, I have no idea what sort of genre I would pick, there are so many amazing areas of novel writing! However I really wanted to gain more English writing skills, develop my vocabulary, my descriptions, developments and evaluations.
Knowing I will continue English in some way builds a sort of happiness and excitement within me. I took English Literature and Language for A Level but ended up with a C due to lower marks on my course work. I wasn’t far off of a B which was quite annoying but I’m one of those people who, if I put the work in, I’ll get the marks.
There are people out there who can do near to no work and still end up with a high mark in their work. I’m one of those people who, if I put the work in, I’ll get a high grade or mark and if I don’t put the work in, I’ll receive a lower mark. How it really should be! If I had put more work into my English A Level I would have done better, I focused more on my arts studying, I got an A in Photography and an A* in Art.
I want to work so hard in this course, as well as having a fresh, clean slate coming back to my degree with a better attitude towards projects I’m not as excited as and favouring other ones. Again, a good example of my work effort was my last few projects. I didn’t put enough effort into one project and earned a mark of52 or something like that but I put a greater amount of effort into my essay and received a mark of 82, a first.
I am so excited for this and it’s over 2 months away.
Forgot how much I loved it. I wanted to share it again with my followers because I was so proud of myself of this project and my Merit mark :)
So I can start making Cyanotypes and selling them on Etsy!! ><
EEEE!! ^_^ Ryan went to London this week to visit his friend that lives there and whilst he was there he went to Forbidden Planet where he bought me this book! Tokyo Lucky Hole - Araki!!!!!
I’ve wanted this for sooooo long but couldn’t really afford it! And he didn’t even know this! ^.^ yeyeyeyyeyey!
Youtube unblocked the music on this… but now it’s blocked in a few countries… Check it out :)
It’s a Stop Motion Little Red Riding Hood film I made in my A level Photography class :)
Got our results today regarding our Primative Project we did in the first term, which if any of you remember was about Body Hair and I got a Upper Second Class Honours for it ^_^ 4 marks off of a First! Well Chuffed :)
So I attempted to do a small photography project on everything I consume. In short it didn’t really work out very well so I might attempt it using my SLR as I used a point and shot camera because I was using my SLR for my current uni project!
So here’s one of the only good pictures from it! hahaha! If you would like to check out anymore check out my photography blog
These are the final images I have selected from the film I processed today to use when creating my cyanotypes!
Not sure about using this or not but this is a photo of pubes, cropped.
I think it was in a work in progress meeting that one of our tutors, Dave, was talking about Nobuyoshi Araki and how all he did was take thousands and thousands of images of basically everything. He then suggested that we do that ourselves, to take photos of anything and everything you see in your…
So yeah, having a whack at this, hopefully it’ll turn out alright but I thought it would be a good idea seeing as I love cooking and I love baking!
A girl in my group at Uni posted this in our BA Photography group on Facebook. Officially love her. This was followed by lots of deep meaningful comments about art, photography and life from people. I love my year.
