Timelines - Photography and Time

Went to the NGV International to see the photography exhibition which is on there.
Works from the collection - was thrilled to see the Latigue and the Brassai here - such iconic works.

Also enjoyed the work of Ponch Hawkes and Bill Brandt

Large Format Camera Work

For my personal project I have decided to use the 5x4 camera at college to photograph still life - vegetables which, unlike people, do not blink or wriggle.
There have been challenges with the loading and development of film, getting the light right and so forth. But I am getting close to completion.
Theses are images I took using my digital camera when I was testing the light and composition prior to using the large camera.

Portraits of Carole

Carole was the second prize winner of the Visual Arts end of year exhibition fund raiser - and wins a black and white portrait.
The portrait was taken in the studio at NMIT
These are the four I like best, but it is up to Carole to chose which she likes best.
The lectures and practical exercises we have undertaken during the course have paid off I think.

Sojourn Series

I have created some works for the Wales St Primary Art Show.
Thought I would try a different style, and have been pleased with the outcome.
They are collages - 8x8inches. A new format for me.

Sojourn series (cont)

These are 8x10 inches.
