My beautiful boy xxx

I've been messing around in photoshop elements trying to remember the basics and discover some of the fancy new stuff. It's amazing what it can do! I have become a bit addicted to the high contrast button as I love the garish, bold colours. But I will probably go back and re-edit photos later to be less brash... maybe. lol.

Strangers - related to the idea '100 strangers' project, where you ask to take portraits of people you don't know and find out a little bit about them. http://www.flickr.com/groups/100strangers/

Minamilist Landscape - project idea, landscapes in busy city spaces, concentrating on less cluttered elements.

The Beginning... again

I have recently mostly decided to perhaps try for university once again... :P I have always enjoyed photography and the 'Lens Based' elements of my previous fine art courses were always far too short for my liking. I left my fine art course at DMU after only a few months, knowing that it wasn't right for me. That was a few years ago and since then I have done the most amazing thing with my life - I've had a son!!! My amazing baby boy has just turned 1! And now that baby brain has started to lift, I've decided to get creative again. The aim is to apply for uni in January 2012, depending on if I can get a portfolio of work together for my application. I've started this blog as a way of keeping track of my progress and to see where things go. That's the plan anyway...
