Wow! It’s been almost 10 months since my last post on here.
My last post was just before my induction day at Hereford College of Arts so it’s crazy to think that I have already finished my first year of University.
I’ve been up to a lot this year, busy with coursework and new friends, and I haven’t done a lot of photography.
Photography is not a big part of my course, Contemporary Applied Arts, however we were given the chance near the end of the year to do a few photography workshops and I jumped at the chance to have a go at pinhole photography.
This first photo is of the entrance of my college. The distortion of the images is because my pinhole camera was made out of a Pringles tube.
The two above are of a sculpture at my college. For the second one I folded the photographic paper to distort the image. I thought this could be quite interesting to play with both digitally and physically, maybe inserting another image into the middle or filling the gap with drawing or stitch to extend the sculpture.
I really liked the idea of distorting my images with folds and I took the technique further to create the above image. The effect is really quite interesting and surreal.
I really enjoyed my first year at Hereford and I am pleased to tell you that I received a 1st!
