WEEK 46

THE NORTH HAVE INVADED!

After 3 years the posse has finally taken on the 6 hour car journey down to the bottom of England and I am beyond ecstatic to have them stay over the next week, in which case there is no time to waste!

After a few pints and a good ol' kip, we were straight out this morning down towards the southern coastline to visit Botallack. Upon the cliff's edge sits the derelict engine houses which were used as a part of mining back in the 19th century, though mining has been documented in the area much further back than this.

After a fair amount of exploring we finished the day down at Porth Nanven for the sunset...that was until Sam decided to fall into a thorn bush and cut her legs, a sign that it was time to head back. I have to admit, having nearly all the people I adore in one location is 100% golden x 

Here's to the rest of the week which will hopefully be just as productive (with no more injuries fingers crossed).

WEEK 46 - 16/05/2018

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.
