Campfires in Winter

Just thought I would post some of my finished articles I wrote for Uni. The first is on Flat 0/1, a bar in Glasgow and the second is on the band 'Campfires in Winter'. These articles went towards a website we created in groups, enjoy.

So I felt it was time to invest in a new camera, and i've always been interested in analog cameras. While searching these on the internet the term 'Lomography camera' kept coming up. I'm still not exactly sure what it means but I got this meaning below off the official website... 

A Lomograph holds a charm all of its own. Somehow, everything is amplified, making ordinary objects stand out, enhancing details that would normally go unnoticed. Characterised by ever-changing variables such as the mysterious vignettes that frame the shot, light leaks, lo-fi grain, beautiful blurs, the magical balance of contrast and saturation … just to name a few.
A combination these factors and a healthy touch of the unexpected go into making each Lomograph unique. Essentially, Lomography embraces the element of surprise that only analogue film photography can bring and wholeheartedly celebrates the outcome.
Experiment with different kinds of films, and try different tips and techniques, such as cross-processing (x-pro) – it works well with Lomographic cameras!

Extreme Make-up

At the moment we are designing an online magazine, and our group has decided to do a feature on extreme make-up. Here's just a few images I'm using for inspiration, and I'm so excited to attempt a few of these ideas.

Below are a few models from John Galliano's shows

Flat 0/1

So I did my photo-shoot in Flat 0/1 over the weekend and here are the best shots. The owner of the bar, Chris was pretty decent and put some music on for us and we pretty much had free range to go and do what we wanted. I thought the flat was great to take photos in, my favorite touches were the swinging seats made from a cut in half bathtub, the moustache stuck on the mirror in the toilets and the tropical bird wallpaper.

Also thank you to my models Marcus and Hope.
