My job was putting on a photography workshop in the half term. I think the workshop was more originated for children, but it sounded like it would be a lot of fun so I decided to go anyway.
It was a really great day. I had done photograms before, but it had been as part of a project and didn’t experiment very much. Today I could use a variety of materials to play around with shape, shadow and light.
Here are the photograms that I created:
This is my favourite one I produced of a octopus underwater scene. I used paper doilies, feathers, plant material, buttons and other bits and bobs.
This is a bird one which didn’t come out as well as the octopus one, but still has some really nice details such as the shuttlecock in the left hand corner.
If you ever get the chance to do some photograms then definitely give them ago as they are fun and easy to do!
A week ago I had the joy of attending an anatomy workshop run by Charlie James an anatomy lecturer and artist. The workshop was great fun and came away learning a lot of new information about how the bones and muscles work.
The teacher had us drawing with tracing paper over a photograph of a man. We had to feel our own faces where more fats, muscle was placed and how far away it would have been relative to the skull. A really knowledgeable experience and I would love to do more of these types of lessons.
Logo Design for Buzzing Blooms
These past couple of weeks I have been having a lot of fun designing a logo for a new business called ‘Buzzing Blooms’. A flower farm which also keeps bees and chickens. Keep an eye out for their flowers which should be available early next year, bulbs are being planted now! Here are the finished logos and designs.
