It’s that time again, where my winter darkroom course has come to an end. The finale is a big exhibition at the end of term to show off the schools work and it officially starts today! It covers a wide range of Art subjects from painting to drawing, sculpture and jewellery making, the list is long! So if you live in or near Aberdeen you really should go check it out.
As most of you may know, I’m slowly turning into a photography geek as my mum put’s it. She finds herself yawning as I explain how water being one degree out can ruin your film processing. I never realised I'd got that boring. But, this is good, it means I'm actually absorbing information. However dull it may seem to others, this for me is progress. Last term I completed the Foundation Photography course and this term I moved in with the big kids in Intermediate Photography. It is expected that the intermediate class, “yeah that’s me” will print bigger images than the foundation class, which puts a bit of pressure on. The intermediate class is generally full of very experienced photographers and it’s easy to feel inferior, but that's not the atmosphere of the class. People love it so much that they come back year in year out. As you can imagine, it’s tough to get a place. The tutor Neal is highly recommended and has a wealth of experience in both digital and old school film.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to give a big shout out to my bang tidy models Shannon and Fraser. Thanks for giving me free reign to do as I please. I think you will all agree that the lovely Miss G would be in with a shot for "rear of the year", and I wouldn't mind a pair of legs like hers either!
The exhibition is on for one week.
