Our final post of module work created by our first year students during their last module of the year. These images were created by Jemima Wilch.
“I have been immersed with food images, cook books, magazines and recipe cards due to my mother’s passion for cooking. I narrowed down all of the thousands of ideas in these to an in depth study of vegetables.”
New module work from first year Adam Chandler.
“During the Personal Portfolio module, I decided to focus on music photography, particularly the heavy music scene. During the development of this module I switched from using a zoom lens to a 28mm prime which allowed me to get more involved with the concerts and this made the process a lot more fun and also produced more effective images. Getting more involved with each concert made me pick up on the emotions coming from the crowd and band on stage varying from aggression to unity. This module has allowed me to make so many new friends and gain so much more confidence, I’m excited to what the rest of my time at university has to offer.”
New module work from first year Eva Brooks.
“I chose to specialise in dance photography as it has been a passion of mine from a young age. After experimenting with different styles and ideas I ended up focusing on costumes and pointe shoes; creating movement using a long shutter speed and using a torch to dodge and burn areas of the images in camera. The finished work is conceptual and was so much fun to create.”
Module work created by first year Jack Griffiths.
“The Personal Portfolio was a module that allowed us to explore and photograph our passions or areas of specialisation. I have always been obsessed with cars so I thought this would be great chance to take the leap into automotive photography.”
New module work from first year Jake Spencer.
“Our brief for this module stated that we were required to create a portfolio of images based on our interests and passions to create a portfolio of a minimum of 10 images. For my personal portfolio, I decided to shoot styled portraiture as I love working creatively with other people and experimenting with colours and lighting.”
Module work from first year Megan Williams.
“Here are is an edit of the images I created for the personal portfolio module. I chose to specialise on canine photography as dogs are a huge passion of mine. Photographing my area of interest was very enjoyable and it was great to see and hear the enthusiasm for the work from the rest of the group.”
News in from third year Poppy Challinor.
“I’ve recently been interviewed by Self magazine and The Press Association concerning my work on Instagram documenting psoriasis. The interview with Self has been posted on their Instagram page (@selfmagazine) which has 600k followers and will also be posted onto their Facebook page that has over 1.7M followers. The Press Association interview will be published over the coming weeks.”
New work from second year Amyleigh Fowles.
“Dotties is from one of the self-directed briefs we were tasked with completing. My intention was to combine my childhood love for Dalmatians (hence the title Dotties) with my area of specialisation, portrait photography. The outcome of this brief was informed by research into the popular culture that surrounds Dalmatians, the origin of the breed and the era of when the book, 101 Dalmatians was written which also informed the styling for the shoot.”
New work from second year Sarah Puzey.
“For this brief we were required to create a silhouette inspired by our research. I used natural light and over exposure to create this image, after taking inspiration from the documentary work of photographer Josef Koudelka.”
