Winter Garden

A new year, a new start. Now that Christmas has come and gone, I am hoping to venture out more with my camera and take some new pictures. The weather is a little cold at the moment but I do not let this deter me, there is something quite invigorating about the great British outdoors.

For Christmas I received a gift that I hope to use as often as I can to incorporate into my practice, that gift was an Autographer….great for taking candid shots and I will be using it as well as my standard Nikon camera. Over the festive period I have experimented with it but I am definitely looking forward to some drier, warmer weather where I shall be using it more!

I will be updating this space shortly…..

Hatfield House Picnic

Yesterday was a beautiful day for a picnic, if not a little hot. We had the pleasure of meeting up in the park at Hatfield House and setting up a picnic to be photographed. This was a side project and was not strictly related to the work that we were producing for our final major project but it enabled us to bond as a group and gave us the opportunity to try and incorporate some of the styles, methodologies and techniques that we would be using within our major project. I decided to capture a 360º panoramic shot of Hatfield House and project this as a stereographic image.

This was also a good opportunity to capture more images to form part of our Instagram mini project (#picnicification). These can be seen below and also viewed at instagram.com/brochuwilliamsphotography.

When we had finished our picnic, I took a walk around the gardens of Hatfield House and took some photographs. There were plenty of sculptures to see and I was pleasantly surprised with how big the gardens actually were.

Instagram #Picnicification

As part of our Instagram project, we have been given the hashtag #picnification, a made up word summing up everything to do with picnics. Here is a small selection of images that have been added to my instagram account and I hope to be adding more to the collection soon.

Whilst awaiting to embark on my Final Major Project which begins next month, I have still been posting images onto my Instagram page with the Hashtag #Frame.

Soon we will will be given another keyword (hashtag) and uploading new images. Here is a selection of the images that I have uploaded:

#Frame

Here are a few more images that I have added to my Instagram as part of the #frame project. It has been interesting looking at objects around me and trying to find something that fits into this mini project. It has certainly made me more alert to what is around me.

I am happy with the images that I have uploaded to Instagram and I feel that they meet the brief that we were given as a group. I hope to find some more suitable images before the hand in date (30th April, 2014). My particular favourites out of the above 4, are the first image and the last. The first image I think captures and frames the landscape well and it runs along with the current theme of landscapes that I have been working on. The last image I like because of its abstract look and I am fond of the colour and the patterns within the image.

Instagram

As part of our Practice 2 (Media) project, our group was asked to start posting images to Instagram. We were given a theme, which was entitled “Frame” and we were asked to post and tag (#) with the word “Frame” any images that we thought captured this.

I managed to post a few…when I remembered. I have put a few on this blog but they can be accessed at: instagram.com/brochuwilliamsphotography
