Photo story of Hereford

This Photo story was my first assignment at Hereford College of Arts. We were totally thrown in at the deep (in my opinion anyway) with this street documentary project, although it's fair to say that it was massive confidence boost for me. I've said many times before that photographing people, especially without them knowing, is not something I particularly enjoy so this forced me to be brave and I am quite proud of the outcome. And actually, thinking about it now, this assignment has given me confidence to embark on self initiated documentary projects such as the piece I did at Hereford May fair this year.

The Face Project

I'm taking you back in time again today with another project I did at college. This time it's all about the face and during this unit we got to experiment will kinds of different techniques including darkroom and camera-less photography as well all sorts of digital stuff with flash and slow shutter speeds.

The Home Project

So this was the first assignment I was given at the start of my college course in 2011. The task was to produce 5 images that could be used to advertise a new TV documentary about the home.

This was the first time I'd ever used a manual camera both digital and film. I love using film and being in the darkroom, although I haven't used it much recently, and so for my final 5 images I chose to use 35mm film and focus on activities that take place in the home throughout the day.
