Seaside scene (archway)

The original photo plus the colour-enhanced version. Personally, I think there is a certain charm about the first image. However, the urge to experiment was ultimately too strong so here are both versions.

Writing on the Wall

IMG_0129IMG_0212

Words, when curated like this, can really make you stop and think for a second whilst walking in the city. I write curated, but who’s to say the authors even intended for this to be Art? Either way, I think both interventions of public space make you take a break and reflect on what is happening in the world around us.

The first sign was found on the back of a van in South East London, whilst the second was (more surprisingly) located on a wall outside St Paul’s Cathedral.

Reflections

I took this photo whilst strolling alongside the broads in Norwich (the very beautiful and historic capital city of Norfolk). It’s one of the many places in England I visited over the summer this year- stay tuned for more posts!

Identity Flags

Flag

This is the final result of a project with my year 7 Art Club. I asked each of the students to design their own flag, including their hobbies and interests etc., and then I made them out of fabric before sewing them all together. As you can see, Art Club brings together many different students and I think this is reflected in the motto “not only the outside matters” which was chosen by one of the students.

Light Graffiti

These light graffiti photos were made using a digital camera, an iPhone torch, and a small flashlight. To capture the trails of light I needed a longer exposure, so I changed the shutter speed on the camera to 2 minutes for each one.

These were quick experiments but you could try using lots of different coloured lights and types of torches to create your own light graffiti. My top tips are to ensure the place you’re working in is quite dark (this creates more contrast for the light painting to stand out) and to use the Bulb mode on your camera to ensure you are on the slowest shutter speed possible. This will allow you more time to get creative with your designs!
