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 31

This week marked a sad day. On Friday 22nd September....Summer officially came to a conclusion. Jumper season has finally arrived; queue the multicoloured leaves and dark evenings. In fairness, Autumn is probably my preferred season, purely due to the fact that I can drink a hell of a lot more tea and of course, Halloween. On another note, this week also marked the start of my third and final year at Falmouth University. Don't get me wrong, I'm in complete disbelief at how quickly these past two years have gone, but I don't really think its fully sunk in yet that after this year, that's it. It'll be time for the real world of opportunity....shit.

Although I'm already slightly anxious and the anxiety is bound to increase at some point, I'm really pumped for what this next year is going to bring and where my final project is going to lead. I feel like I've already managed to make a positive start on the research element, it's just a matter of keeping on top of a consistent workflow now that I can juggle alongside the dreaded 'D' word (Dissertation) up until Christmas. The next few months will definitely be interesting.
