Chiaroscuro & Curry

Just finished my time in studio today – thought I’d quickly stick up a wee post about my progress with this book project.

I’ve finished my research (thank god for that!) and I’m now onto taking photos for each of the basic principles of design.

I’ll then have to narrow these down to ten images, one for each category:

Colour, Texture, Dots, Lines, Dot & Line, Crossing, Planes, Circles, Rhythm and Chiaroscuro.

After that I’ll have to create an illustration for each photograph (using different materials ‘n such) and stick it all together in a purdy layout for publishing … and this is for Friday … sleeping shall be minimal for the remainder of this week!

So here’s 3 of the images that I feel are the strongest so far – shall hopefully get this all done in time!

So this spiderweb that I photographed today is for “Crossing”.

I was lucky enough to be taking pictures whilst there was a burst of sunshine through the windows, and because I snapped this during the blip of good weather, it picked up markings on the glass too – which I thought looked rather sparkly and purdy!

This is for “Texture”. Whilst photographing the walls outside our studio for “Dots”, I noticed a small numerical print on the wall – it looked like a rather rough texture, so I zoomed in and then altered the contrast on photoshop to bring it out a wee bit!

And last, but not least :P, this image is for “Chiaroscuro” (light-dark). Just stumbled across these whilst wondering about Scott Sutherland building and altered the white balance on my camera before taking the shot.

So that’s all for now, since I probably wont have much time to update over the next week!

Off for curry and chat at Jan ‘n Den’s now (biryani goodness!).

Over ‘n Out!

We’ve returned from the stone age!

In our new flat, and after a looooong long time without internet, we finally have it all set up and raring to go!

So started semester one of year 2, new project and a short timescale to add to it (the fun begins). We’ve to create and self publish a book about the basic principles of design using photography, sketches and other such things. Shall keep ya updated on that (since I’m now a part of the 21st century again!).

Yesterday we presented our Visual Diaries, didn’t really know what to say or do, so just picked out a few parts like the mural, postcards and other little things like that to talk about – think it went well and the feedback I got back was helpful! 🙂

Here’s some lil’ bits and bobs from the diary,they’re putting them on display in our building, so don’t have pictures of the full thing, but with the images I’ve got, I’ll make a temporary page about it!

So this is the first stage of a final design, but I really liked it before and after the design was all put together, shall have to get a pick of the final thing!

This is a solution me n’ the bf came up with to get the bloody bill faster, lol!

So these are picks of my city view (oooooh, :P!) at nite on a slow shutter speed. I’m pleased with how you also get a vague shape of my room in the window reflection too.

Well that’s all for now, shall get a post up about my new project work asap!

Over n Out!
