Two Faces – Ageing

Through this project I am looking into advertising and how they have created bad connotations towards ageing and elderly.

Speed Edit

Over the next few months I will be producing series of images for my Fianl Major project that will be exhibited in London this summer.

Really need your help

Hey guys, some of you might be aware that I am doing my Final Year of BA Photography and one of the requirements to finish this years is to raise £7000 for our exhibition in London. The ones that dind’t – well now you know…. So.. Over the last year we have had some ups and downs with our foundraising, yet we haven’t given up just yet.

If I could ask for you to spare two minutes and seventeen secounds watching our Crowdfunder video and maybe then pledging some pennies of yours towards our goal, we will make sure you receive some wonerful gifts. Thank you for your time.

Stolen Childhood

“Stolen Childhood”

Is a series of images that represent physical and emotional abuse towards children. The themes of this project were achieved through the use of digital manipulation and self portraiture. The images were based on my current “Visual Trend” project where I am looking at topical issues in the United Kingdom.

Long Time

It has been a while since I updated my blog… Apologies to anyone who has waited for new photos and slightly entertaining notes ( I am away on holiday, or I should say I am working hard while I am away from UNI )

So, so far I haven’t been good and my camera has sat at corner of my room (sad times), but TODAY was THE day, when I got out and took my brother with me and did some under water shots ( after all I had to test my sooo brand NEW GoPro3, happy days )

I have just one image, or maybe two, that I am pleased of. The other ones were just for a test, as you do.

.

What else – oh yes, I got myself a new lens ( 105mm, f2.8 Macro ) lovely, my man loves it!!!! Still I haven’t had any decent time off to explore the world with this new shiny toy, so I have just a test run (please bare with me)

As far as my photography stuff – You will get some decent images when I am back at UNI, as for now that’s it for a little while.

Enjoy the summer, we are having some lovely weather. 😀

Landscape Photography ( Jono Renton )

Biography

Born in Nottingham, England in 1990, Jono Renton has been studying photography by himself for the past 8 years and has won numerous British and International photography awards, mostly notably for his series of landscape photos and street portraits.
Since an early teenager he has been producing high quality landscape photos on an old 35mm film camera and continues the quality at an even higher level using traditional film techniques with digital and medium format.

Jono has recently recieved a first class (BA) honours degree in photography and has exhibited throughout Nottingham and London.

My main influence came from Jono Renton, his work provides great quality and thorough planning. As he mentioned in his interview, he started his journey in this field with using film camera, which thought him that planning his shot and visualizing the outcome is essential.

His panoramic images shows the atmosphere of the location and defiantly sales the place to anyone who has seen his work.

As for me, the milky water and isolated colors are the important part in his work. Mostly photographers capture “beautiful” landscapes with the thought to sale. But Jono, has his own style which is more of a Fine Art, introducing the viewer to the scale, space and place, with out the thought of selling it.

Equipment

Canon and Mamiya cameras and lenses. Lee Filters. Gitzo Tripods. Canon Remotes.
