I flippin love trees...

Sorry..... I know it's lazy and I know I'm just filling up this blog with tree pictures...... but I just can't help it. It's made worse by the fact that I currently power walk with my dog in the same woods everyday, in an attempt to lose weight on my wedding dress diet (if you're interested just over a stone now, with another 1.5 to go), so have trees on my mind constantly.  BUT... I will have some Christmas portraits to post very soon....

More laziness...

I just can't help myself, I love autumn too much!  This is taken in Whippendell Woods, behind the famous Grove Hotel, where I walk my dog... when I say walk, I mean he runs around the woods chasing stuff whilst I stand still taking pictures... laziness on 2 levels!

Lazy...

Lewis Lewis says this is lazy photography!  I think nature is amazing, it's my favourite season and I can't help myself, I have to take some autumn pictures... although I'm not 100% sure the colours are translating properly from my computer to this blog site???... grrrrr!

My MA Muse Maeve...

This is the WIP for my MA Final Project...  following on from the style and theme I created for the last project I wanted to progress the idea of the untruth of images and the perception of the body...

This idea is twofold and circular - 1) it's about women's bodies being put on an unrealistic pedestal (esp.in the media) by body beautiful actresses, models etc who've had surgery or who have been airbrushed.  2) it's about the camera distorting and not being able to show the truth in a single photograph.  This second point adds the dimension that returns the concept to point no.1...

These images are influenced by Jenny Saville and Lucian Freud and I want them to have an almost painterly quality, playing with the notion that the camera, the photograph, never lies.

This image is a composite of 35 layered images of my lovely cousin Maeve...
