Pinhole Cameras

During our first week we were given a workshop where we were able to create our own pinhole cameras using a can. In the workshop we were taught how to make the camera using the can, some paper and tape. I found this to be fairly simple and encountered no issues when producing my camera.

We were then taken to the dark room where we were instructed about the use of film, and how light can affect it’s development later in the process.

When we had inserted the film into the can, we were able to leave the darkroom and take a photograph; leaving the film to be exposed for no longer than 8 seconds to get the best results.

Afterwards we placed the film in the development chemicals, and were able to see what we had captured. After this process, the film was photographed and and inverted to show the cameras proper effect.

Reflective blog- Poster design.

When creating my poster design I heavily researched other posters similar to what I was trying to create and produce before I started. This research gave me a template for my own work and allowed me to adapt and reproduce my own piece of work with a basic platform. To create my work I used a free online editor called serif drawplus, which allowed me to produce my piece of work at a satisfactory level. If I was to re-do this design I would use a different programme, preferably Photoshop, to create something that looks a lot more professional. However I am pleased at the outcome of the design considering free online software was used to create it.

One of my main interests in media is photography. This is because it allows you to capture various different images, in many creative ways. Photography also gives you the opertunity to edit and manipulate photos using many different platforms, such as photoshop or using different lens exposures, to give a wide range of different shots and images.

A particualr photographer that I am interested in is Darren Pearson. He combinres photography with light painting through the use of LED lights. I find this to be particularly interesting as it adds a whole new concpet to the photograph by combining two different techniques, and I think that this is a creative way at making an image into something more modern and unique. As well as light painting he also takes landscape photographs, mainly in the night, and I also find these photographs to be interesting as I am also interested in landscape photos. This is because I find them to be simple but extremely effective in capturing the shot.

Stephen King

Another interest of mine in the media is film production. This is because I am extrememly interested in films and tv series, and is something I take into interest in my spare time. I like film production as it allows you to conceptualise your ideas and turn them into something creative and visual.

I am particularly intestered in Stephen Kings films that are based on his book adaptions. One of the main reasons I particularly have interest into his work is because of the genre his movies are all based upon.
