Whilst exploring the exhibition I was drawn to one felt maker in particular. Her use of organic materials to create her pieces is very intriguing. She is using material not associated with bees at all. The creating samples of bees in a very scientific way, it almost is a play on emotion. As you feel happy that the material are reasonably sourced but the disassociation from the bees themselves just show how east we can not only misinterpret but our own minds become adapted to
https://www.facebook.com/peoplepowerchange/videos/10158547869355788/ I have watched this video today and even though the video was very interesting and useful I am actually more drawn to the amount of like shares and comments. This ha made me think that I should look at ways of displaying my work across all social media platforms to raise awareness of the cause but also raise my profile.
Film developer: Ilford Ilfotec DDX 1+6. In my opinion it is the best film developer, both in terms of performance and reliability, that Ilford make (true then and still true now). The top line of the specification that together for Ilford DDX it give performance similar to ID11 powder developer but in a convenient liquid concentrate rather than powder. Paper developer: Ilford Multigrade 1+4, 1 minute resin coated (RC), 2.5 minutes fibre based (FB). Multigrade developer gives
One of the most difficult things I had to learn about black and white darkroom printing is to recognise good from bad prints and know how to make any print into a good print. For me this was just a matter of time. Working on this project with such intense volume and seeing and talking about prints, good and bad, every day was one way to do this. I have found that anything is possible using no-one digital development it just needs practice, practice and more practice. The 2 mo
I found this video particularly interesting when exploring the bees flight pattern. I think I need to explore the idea the amount the travel. I could explore a long exposure and place the bee over the image to create a pace of
I have looked at adverts by greenpeace and how they are raining the issue visually. I think the images are very literal and allow for no room to excite the viewer into longer viewing time of the images. I will contact the page today and get some feedback on my work. Above we can see that rate of declining numbers of bees. I am thinking about using numbers or something similar in the next stage of my work going further
Whilst working on this project I have seen people very consumed with the idea of photographic placement and a final intent. But putting this pressure on your work to live up to the standards of a gallery or book from the start is something that just doesn't work for me. We talk very openly about exploring the idea of ambiguity within our images and the creative process, but very little of the ambiguity of placement of images. Our images are allowed to have more than one meani
This images is a screen shot of an article I saw on Facebook. The idea that this problem of the declining bee population has taken social media by storm could be a way for me to utilise free publicity. But also the fact that there is such interest on public media throughout all age groups brings my thinking to the idea of exploration of viewing my images finalised and where they would best fit, gallery, webistqwebsite , books or all
This is a chart showing some flora fauna and herbs that can be planted to help bees. I have already seen information like this but far more detailed as its usually from case studies. I feel this inform brings context the the I'm using in my photographs as there are a direct reflection of flora and fauna I have used.
Whilst reading and exploring the feedback from the various photographers, I have two main goals to achieve with the forthcoming hand in. I need to make sure the images are striking visually. This is being achieved by the composition and contrast within my images, but of the levels within the images themselves. At first the images are grabbing the viewer to come closer to the pieces and then once in a optimal viewing range 2.5 foot, the images begin to open there secrets and a
