Visual Imagery
23rd October 2012 - 0 comments
I have created a new portfolio showing my more artistic nature.
In this portfolio you will find images created using software to show interpretations of my photographs to try and convey the feeling of the image at the time of taking them,such as movement or atmosphere.
I am also interested in how the viewer feels when looking at these images and whether or not they have similar feelings to myself when I took the photograph.
Derby Royal Hospital Exhibition
20th September 2012 - 0 comments
I have an exhibition of Photographs at the Derby Royal Hospital from September 2012 to March 2013.
The exhibition has been organised by Air Arts which is a charity for the well being of patients and staff at Derby hospitals.
The theme for the exhibition is Light Relief,so all of my photographs have been based around this and I have paid particular attention to the light in my images and how it can affect the photograph and also the viewer.
My work is on display on level 4 by wards 401-406 so hopefully it will brighten up the days and give some light relief to the lives of the patients,staff and visitors to the hospital.
I feel that art work in hospitals is important and quite personal as I have had been visiting my local hospital quite regularly and lost several family members recently.
So with this exhibition I feel as though I am giving something back.
