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! (:

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.

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.
