One of the last projects I did this year was a project with the Woodland Trust. The theme was ‘unearthed’, and we showed the photos in a pop-up exhibition in Heartwood Forest in Hertfordshire. I decided to try the idea of burying film again, and it was much more interesting than last time I tried it, I think because I left it buried for longer and had the use of a much better film scanner to pick up the detail. Here are photos of my final chosen photo and its print, and the handout I made for the exhibition explaining the idea.
In February this year, I had my sister visit me at university so I could photograph her in the studio for my portraiture project. I took inspiration from photographer Michael Clark's photographs of athletes.
Now that I've finished my first year of university, I'm planning on sharing some of the photo projects I've been doing, seeing as I haven't posted on here for so long. I'll start with this set of photos of Osiris skate shoes in various skate positions in mid air, which I took for my still life project. This was my first time properly using the studio and its equipment so I was proud of the results.

On Tuesday I visited Kathleen's farm, and as usual (see 'Kathleen's Farm' #1 and #2) we had a wonderful time walking through fields, forests and streams. This time we took Archie, a relatively new dog-shaped addition to the family, along with us which made the whole day even more fun than usual. I also couldn't resist taking a a few photos of the inside of their lovely house.
