I entered a few photographs from my portrait work for the Photofusion members Salon 2013. I am a member there as I use the darkrooms and scanner. One of my entries has been selected and will be on show there from mid-December for a month along with work by around 90 other photographers. Interestingly the […]

Final Cut Pro X

December 2, 2012

I have been using video as a medium for showing some of my work. Specifically I have made two videos which will very probably form part of my submission for the assessment at level 3. So far I had made the videos using the Export Slideshow facility of Adobe Lightroom. This works very well but […]

Assignment 3: I am an Ironman Self Portraits – Feedback

September 27, 2012

2

A few weeks ago I received feedback from Jesse on the above assignment. I outlined the nature of my submission in a previous post.  This is my report on his comments and my learning points. Jesse felt that the work was strong and rigorous(!) – his exclamation mark, and that it is fairly well resolved. […]

Assignment 3 – I am an Ironman Self Portraits – Submission

August 16, 2012

I have now submitted this work to my tutor. I must say that I very unsure of what his comments will be. The work is a little more experimental than  I have normally have presented. That said to establish one’s  voice as a photographer I think one has to take some risks… A pdf file […]

‘I am an Ironman’ Self Portraits – Progress

July 1, 2012

I  have been continuing to work on this series. Recently I have completed a set which I am thinking of as a set which represents me ‘Ready to race’. I have a race coming up in Frankfurt one week today. At its heart this work is an autobiographical piece about what its like to train […]

Barthes on Portraiture

June 29, 2012

6

I have been questioning what I am trying to achieve with my self portraiture assignment. Earlier today I came  across this quotation from Roland Barthes. “The PORTRAIT-PHOTOGRAPH is a closed field of forces. Four image-repertoires intersect here, oppose and distort each other. In front of the lens, I am at the same time: the one I […]

Looking towards Assignment Three

June 25, 2012

Assignment three is intended to be a series of self portraits. I must say after the reception of my self portraiture work in Lanzarote, I am a little apprehensive about this project. I started the work some time ago and have posted some of the images on this blog previously. I plan to continue with […]

Self Portrait Series

March 18, 2012

I have been continuing with my self portrait series based around the ‘I am an Ironman’ idea. I am producing a portrait series by photographing myself immediately after key workouts in my training schedule. For the photograph I will be wearing the clothing used for the workout. I am following a strict process for producing […]

“I am an Ironman” Self Portrait Project

February 26, 2012

1

I have been thinking about this project and will probably try a few different alternatives to see how the photographs shape up. My first thought is that this might be an extension of the main ‘I am an Ironman’ project. I would make a series of portraits of myself immediately after key workouts during my […]

Self Portrait – I am an Ironman

February 10, 2012

2

I have just made a self portrait to be included in the ‘I am an Ironman’ series. It is interesting making self portraits. One puts oneself in the position of the subject, so that all the uncertainties that this entails are experienced personally by the photographer. My subjects often ask me what I want them […]
