Cornwall

WEEK 34

The deadline for the first draft of the dissertation is looming....9 days to be exact. Just letting that sink in for myself, don't worry. Putting that aside, I feel as though this week has once again been fairly productive, that is in regards to my project.

Shooting finally started this Wednesday in the new daylight studio we now have here at Falmouth. I mainly took this opportunity to experiment with various visual ideas I'm currently having in regards to my concept, along with Louie who also took the time to experiment with his own ideas. We spent a solid 6 hours in their just shooting making the most of the time we had, despite the fact we lost about 10 minutes due to an unexpected fire alarm, but overall, we came away with some decent outcomes. I also got round to having a little road trip with the lovely Anneka all the way up to Newquay for the day in order to do yet another shoot which was very reliant on the natural light and landscapes. We parked right on the tip of Fistral Beach with a Stables just around the corner for good measure. Anneka also got round to shooting some landscapes for her own current project on a 'FUJI G617 PANORAMIC CAMERA' which she recently got her hands on and it's absolutely huuuggge! We shot throughout the day and took the view in as the sun finally started to set which is always the best way to end a top day!

Now, as a result of having such a productive week, I have gone and caught the absolutely glorious freshers flu...or maybe just your regular old cold, who knows? Either way, it's not ideal when you intend to get your head down and make a firm approach to a dissertation where I will most definitely need a clear head. This can only lead into what I imagine will be a very intense week ahead. 

WEEK 34 - 18/10/2017

WEEK 30

It's my third week back in Falmouth and yet I can already feel the stress levels rising...is that normal seeing as I haven't even started back Uni yet?? I can already feel the deadlines breathing down the back of my neck.

On a brighter note, Anneka turned the big old 21 this week which gave everyone a good reason to celebrate and drink all the available booze. The troops were assembled and we head straight to the Holy Land that is The Stables, resulting in delicious pints of sweet, sweet Cornish cider and a freshly baked pizza. Now, of course, any 21st birthday results in a glorious night out on the town and as we live in Falmouth, no club comes close to the strangely addictive Club International....mainly because there isn't a vast amount of options to choose from. However, if you put the awful odour and sticky carpet aside, it usually ends up being an eventful evening. Speaking on behalf of Anneka, I'm pretty confident in saying she had an excellent night.

Happy Birthday again Bud!
