My self imposed mini bloggings break is over. If you follow me over on social media such as Instagram or Twitter, you'll know that I haven't been on a break due to travels to exotic shores but I have in fact just
completed survived my first year as a 'mature' (allegedly...) student on a BA (Hons) photography degree at Norwich University of the Arts and so I needed to take some time out to throw everything at getting the final part of the year completed.
It's been a big life change as you can imagine but it has also been a truly brilliant year and like many students adjusting to their first year at uni I've parted with my fair share of blood, sweat and even tears but I'm so pleased to have made it through the year and to report back that I survived!
Despite the fact I have what feels like a million things to update you on and blog about, it seems only apt that I'm back in the blog seat with a post on a night time adventure I had with Wex Photographic.
The night before my recent final project hand-in of year one I was running around wasteland on an exclusive workshop organised by Wex Photographic shooting the rehearsal of the 451 event which was part of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival
The event was described on the NN Festivals website as:
The workshop was very mixed in skills from those that have shot festivals (so are used to working in the dark!) to part time photographers and those hoping to become photographers.... and then there was me! Now I may know my way round my camera but as you may know I tend to do fashion/fashion portraiture so this was WAY WAY WAY out of my comfort zone or indeed really what I know. I'm,not used to shooting in the dark without flash at all!
Fortunately the photographer Damien Demolder who was leading the workshop is a photographer extraordinaire and he was fantastic at taking us through our settings prior to the the start of the show, and really helped us make the most of the hour's rehearsal.
