I finished my final exam today. So it's back to the good old internet, and goodbye revision for now!
Over the weekend we went away, but I spent most of the time revising- only pausing for a quick shoot (voila!) and a walk on the beach.
Now I know this is a pretty stark monochrome palette, especially for me. I don't usually like such plain backgrounds in photos. I'm inspired by more of a Tim Walker-esque aesthetic. I feel that photography is made up of two parts- the person and their surroundings. I suppose living in the countryside does help! But this seems to work under the circumstances.
On the day we left for the weekend, I had had a bit of a bad day at school,when I came home to find this big jumper lying on my bed. (Along with an amazing authentic riding jacket.) My lovely mum had found it in a local charity shop that day. That was it. I practically set up camp inside it for the whole weekend while looking at simultaneous equations and wavelengths... I love the fact that I can basically slob around in it, while still feeling moderately sophisticated, but then can properly dress up with appropriate accessories. Actually, I felt rather Mary Quant-ish wearing something this short, I'm much more of a long skirts girl.
At the moment, it seems the only things that keep me warm enough are big woollen jumpers. (Often paired with a floral skirt and vintage hat a la 'Edge Of Love').
In these pictures I am wearing a vintage sixties necklace- another gem found among treasures under my bed during clearing out! The ring used to be my great-grandmothers and the shoes are thrifted.
Now I think that may be it. Woah, already?! I have a feeling a few of my brain cells were probably burned up during exams this week, so hopefully I will have fully recovered them by the next post!
Do not adjust your sets folks, full colour will be resumed in the next post- enough of this blackand white lark!
This is one of the photos I took on the beach (after wrestling the camera off Dad). It's my brother, playing in the distance. Quite a few people have asked about camera we use. It is a Canon 5D that me and my dad share.We got it a few months ago, and I love it to bits! The quality is amazing, and I am always trying to organise fashion shoots with my friends so I can take a chance to be behind the camera...
