New Work - Summer 2017
It's been a long time since I posted anything so apologies for this onslaught of pictures from my recent devved film.
Odds and Ends
The exhibition was a resounding success! I want to thank everyone who came along and supported all of us who displayed our work over the three days. Luckily the exhibition actually made a good profit and this has gone back into creating what I love to create. Here are several pieces I have had developed in the last month.
The second part of my overall contribution to the 'sense of good' Exhibition is a series of work which combine conventional portraiture which has been digitally manipulated to embrace 90s style television graphics and crude copy and paste collages. These are a few rough examples which show the sort of direction I will be taking.
Also we now finally have a venue and dates for the exhibition!!
17th - 19th of March at The Museum of Bath at Work. I will post directions closer to the time!
My new body of work which I'm trying to create consists of digital and analog b&w pictures which have been edited in post to create a stark contrast between the base image and bright psychedelic colours. It's amazing when you start to use Photoshop in a way that it is not designed to be used. The process in making these pictures is the simple use of the fill tool which naturally colours the visible gradients or fluctuations of the shades of greyscale.
Over the next few months I'm going to continue trying this technique in as many different variations and in as many different applications as possible. The end result will be a large body of work that I can choose from to exhibit.
The exhibition in question is 'the sense of good exhibition' which is being hosted by my magazine 'sense of good'. So far we are trying our hardest to find a suitable venue and raise enough funds to book out a space and work out all the logistics of said space. At the time of me writing this, we currently have had £215 in donations however we still have a long way to go to get to the goal of £2000.
Here is a link to donate:
This is the first part of my work for exhibition in March, in Part II I will explain in more detail the process in making these pictures and more about the exhibition which I am putting together for 'sense of good' magazine.
For now here are a few proof of concept pictures which I shot today on a Canon 760D and heavily edited.
I am trying to explore a certain technique which I have picked up from experimenting with the fill tool in Photoshop and seeing how this could fit into my final displayed work. The pattern gives the sky a marbling effect and I want to utilise this along with some portraiture and other miscellaneous shots.
These shots are from my exploration of portraiture which should hopefully come together with the other experiments with colour that I have also been doing.
I'm starting a new project in collaboration with fellow photographer Tomos Morris ( http://analogu.tumblr.com/ ) in which we explore the minimal photography with the occasional focus of human interaction. This project will end with an exhibition with a place and date to be confirmed. As preparation for this I will post updates here with the journey towards this.
Here are a few pictures as rough concept shots:
