Final pictures from the first semester

Here are all my 20 final prints that I handed in last week, from the first semester at Falmouth University. It’s four different projects, Person at work, Establishing Image, Portrait and the 24-hour assignment in Plymouth.

It was really nice to finish this and hand everything in. And now we’re starting a new semester with new projects, which I’m sure will be exciting! (:

24 hour project – Plymouth

Yesterday (January 22) we had a 24 hour project, where we were supposed to go to Plymouth, find a story to photograph and send in 6 pictures before midnight. They advised us to do research and decide what story we wanted to photograph before we got there. I ended up doing my story on the lighthouse in Plymouth, Smeaton’s Tower. I thought it was a really nice lighthouse, and for some reason I’ve always been fascinated by lighthouses. I do not know why. Sadly the lighthouse was closed when we got there, so I couldn’t climb to the top, which I really wanted to. Anyways. Here’s a couple of the photos that I took (:

Diwali

For the community shoot for the establishing image brief I chose to go to the Diwali celebration they held in Exeter on the 17th of November. Diwali is a hindu festival, also known as the festival of lights. It is celebrated by Hindus and Indians all over the world. It’s the most important festival of the year and is regarded as the start of a new year. It was really fun, they were dancing and you could buy indian food, there was a snake lady there (a lady who had brought a snake with her) and at the end of the day they had a fireworks display. I had a great day, I’m really glad I went and I think it was a good choice for the community brief.

Here’s a few of my photos from the shoot (:

Rain

It’s been raining a lot here lately, and there’s been flooding several places in Cornwall. There hasn’t been flooding where I live, which is in Penryn, but I think it’s been worse down in Falmouth.

Anyways, Gaia from my course and I decided to go down to Gilly beach in Falmouth one day last week when the weather was really bad to try to get some cool pictures. But we got there a bit late so it was too dark to get anything good.

Person at work

Here are a few of my pictures from the “Person at work” project.

Blowing House Garage, Penryn

This first one is one of my favourites, but I don’t think I can use it because it’s not showing anyone working. It was kinda funny when I took it, because he was standing with his back towards me, talking to the other guys, and I was supposed to take a photo of them. But exactly as I pressed the button he turned towards me asking if I wanted something to drink. So his expression is really natural as he had no idea that I was taking a photo before he turned. I also like the expressions of the guys in the back, and that all three of them are turned towards me.

This is the one I’m going to choose as my final print.

Falmouth Coastguard

I’m probably gonna choose this as my final print from the coast guard.

Kernow Boat Covers, Penryn

And this one of the boat cover maker.

Stanley Kubrick

I’ve just learned that before Stanley Kubrick became the famous movie director he is known to be he worked as a photojournalist for an american magazine called Look, and he worked here until he started his film career, in around 1950.

I love some of the pictures he took, I think he was really good at conveying emotion. Especially the second one and the last one. The second one is a guy waiting at the dentist’s office, and as a person who is kind of scared of the dentist myself, I think Kubrick has really captured how nervous he looks. The last photo he took when he was 17, and it was the first one he sold to the Look magazine. The photo is of a newsvendor looking sad because of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s death in 1945. In addition to the emotion you feel when you look at it, it’s also got a great composition.
