Over the past five months I have been working on two projects for my final major project. Here is a preview of what I have done recently.

I've been researching for a new project. I found these today and they took my breath away. I love the pinky tones in the last images, and the simplicity of the poses are so elegant. They are all stunning and now my new favourites. They also make my wish I could knit huge scarfs!

Afters getting very scared in the woods one night this is what I did....
These are just a few of my favourite images from my will o the wisp shoot last week. I'm pretty happy with them. These are just rough unedited scans. I'm in the process of editing them at the moment. The main thing that I will be doing is playing round with the colours a bit, I'm thinking black and white is the way forward. Next week is my hand in so the final selection and edit with be up here soon. The make up was done by Clare and my model was Amy. I also had two amazing assistants Matt and Min.

Last week when I was talking about the Criminal competition I said Sarah Buck was going to do a post about me, well she has done it and you can read it here. It was so lovely reading what she had to say about my photographs. She is an amazing artist herself, praises from her is a great compliment.
I'm doing my Will-o-the-Wisp shoot on Wednesday. I have been having some very exiting conversations with the lovely Miss Clare Greathead, she has a lovely little blog too. We have decided on some big bright panda eye which should give an ethereal feel to the model. A bit like this but bigger, brighter and generally better ...

So this past week I have been experimenting with differnt types of film and light to find out what the best effect is for my Will o the Wisp project. I like the night shots better as I think they have more potential at communicating the story behind the images but shooting in the day would much easier. I definatly learnt that a very good tripod is needed more than one assistant and lost of lights. All of these photos where taken using a very wobbly tripod which mayeb long exposure difficulty. Also it was sooooo hard to focus on my model as the light became less. The Will o the Wisp is all about light so for the black and white images I tried to use spot lights to refect on the clothes that the model wore. It hasn't worked as well as I hoped it would but there is still a bit of reflection. With the colour images I shot earlier in the evening when the sun was setting. I tried to experiment with multipul exposures as I want my model to repesent the uncertainy and mythical element of the Will o the Wisp. The exposues where a bit weak and needed more time. But overall the test shoots where really interesting and I learnt alot from doing them.
I'm doing my final shoot next week!

Sorry its taken me so long to put images up! I've been meaning to for ages but just been distracted. Still haven't heard anything from the competition yet but when I went to London to show House of Fraser the images they seemed to like them. But they were pretty much the same with every ones images so its hard to tell who they liked the most. Here are a few of my favourites and you can see more on my website.

I love Ricor's photographs. Quiet a lot of them remind me of paintings. They are all taken on film and most of them have a hazy, bleached out look which I love. I'm not so keen on his stuff which doesn't have the vintage feel to them . Not that they aren't good but in comparison to the other images they apear quiet plain.
