Week 11 – reflection

The talk given by photographer Felicity McCabe as part of this week's work was quite an interesting one; it reminded me a little of my younger self. McCabe, who was advised by her tutor that "you'll learn more there" following her continued work experience with Nadav Kander during her course, seemed to find it difficult … Continue reading Week 11 – reflection

Commercial possibilities

In previous posts I have mentioned how tutors have said that my work would lend itself well to possibilities in retail products such as fabrics, tiles and so forth. I have decided that I want to keep my Harena Now work solely as fine art; I feel the message behind it will be lost if … Continue reading Commercial possibilities

Dale Chihuly – astounding glass art

I am surprised I was not aware of this artist until now. The glass art pieces he creates, alone and in collaboration with others, are simply stunning. They are everything I am imagining my Harena Now work could be. His website is an inspiration. The pieces he and his teams create from glass are awe-inspiring; … Continue reading Dale Chihuly – astounding glass art

Pricing plans

I spoke in my previous blog post about the challenge of learning how to best price my work. Although I have had exhibitions this year and attracted local media coverage, I am not recognised as an emerging artist in the wider photographic world. So where this leaves the value of my work is perplexing. I … Continue reading Pricing plans

Week 10 – reflection

I've been a tad side-lined this week as halfway through my husband broke his foot so I took a few nights away from my CRJ and project work to focus on him (and do all the chores/dog walking he has been doing to support me with my MA work schedule). But what I have thoroughly … Continue reading Week 10 – reflection

Harena Now – new angles

I have decided to try a new angle with Harena Now. Although I will still solely be making my work with sand, seawater and UV, I have been considering using sourced images of the people and place effected by the sand crisis. I have also recently been experimenting with double exposure images of the pre … Continue reading Harena Now – new angles

Week 9 – reflection

It has been good to feel as though I have some time to truly reflect on my project work, and make further considerations for the future. What I am learning, more than anything, is that having a full-time job (even one as a communications/marketing manager that affords me good skills for business development) is truly … Continue reading Week 9 – reflection

Quick chat – webinar

I couldn't stay too long at tonight's webinar, but I had the chance to run through my work-in-progress portfolio with my tutor, Krishna. It was reassuring to be told that I am on the right track with a strong set of images. Advice was provided about making sure that when I choose my final set … Continue reading Quick chat – webinar

Non-fixed lumen printing with sand

As part of my Harena Now project work, I have been conducting more sand experiments with out-of-date Ilford black and white photo paper. The paler images shown below are the straight copies of the paper after I decided the 3-hour exposure would suffice, while the stronger colours of the others are created through Photoshop. The … Continue reading Non-fixed lumen printing with sand
