I personally miss my landscape work. So seeing this in the train station on the way to work was fab! These are some of the most beautiful landscapes of the year. And I like how they are pretty much stay true and it’s not industrialised . They aren’t over edited and remain neutral which I find is rare these days.
It was good to see the simply beautiful images in the middle of the city center where so many are photo shopped advertisements setting unrealistic body ideals we forget there is a countryside surrounding us really as we live so built up
I have finally settled on 4 prints in a range of sizes that I am more than happy to exhibit. I have done both test prints and just ordered my final prints today. I wanted to make sure the images didn’t lose their quality and to see what they looked like on semi gloss paper. Which is making it all real now that I am on my final week and sending off for the final bits of work!!
I have had quiet a few ideas on how to exhibit my work, but I have changed the size of my work. I am now doing two A2’s instead of just one and an A3, now that I have ordered my prints I don’t know where to take my work. I have so many ideas and options on how to put my work up, but I think it will be a when it’s time to put the work up that will be when I make a final decision on how I wish to put the work up.
We have been given the chance to do a mini Instagram exhibition to promote the exhibition. One of the technicians has said for anyone who wants to, we can send him some of our images and statement about my work. I think it is a really good idea to get our work out there. And let people know the sort of work they will be seeing. And Instagram is a great way of doing it.
It also looks good for the photography course and page that shows the work us third years are making. It also looks good for the other years to see what they are going to do when it get’s to their third year. Another group it looks good for is potential students, that they have a page to look up and see what they can do if they came here.
One thing I have meant to do since September is the model release form. It has been on my to do list from the start. I know that at this point it isn’t legally binding, but it is part of the submission and does make good practice.
My next issues was Google is filled with thousands of model release forms, and no two forms seemed to be alike. Which did have me worried as I wasn’t sure what sort of form would suit my work… I did finally find one that was a basic stripped back one. One that didn’t over complicate it and covered my entire project.
This has been one of the most tedious thing’s this year and I will be glad when it’s over!! I haven’t been to happy about feeling like I have to constantly hint, nagg and bug family and friends to show how much they love me and give me money haha. I have managed to get a few donations together from family. And have bribed them with as well as the free print we do for certain donations. I have offered to do prints from my work as part of it. Knowing my family have been wanting some of my work.
I do understand the fund raising was essential I have just hated how last minute it has all felt.
We recently had to submit work to our shred google drive. This work was going to be a part of the our exhibition catalogue and the work would build that up. For this we just had to add a couple of our own photos from our series. And have a separate word document with both our title and mini artist statement about the work we have done.
It was quiet interesting to see everyone’s work on their, the titles and images we have all got down too. Seeing the wide diversity among all our projects. Between us all we cover so many themes and ideas. And I can’t wait to see what the final catalogue and work will all look like.
