I have been photographing for the cover of my latest rap “Bright and Early”. I photographed my bedroom clock to fit in with the line of my first verse “Get up about six-oclock/Cos time is tickin’ away, tick tock tick tock” and the alarm bell merged into my beat near the beginning of the rap.
Here’s my finished cover and underneath, my new track!
Hey! I have created a new blog especially for my photography, called “George’s Art Photography Blog”.
Please check it out here, and let me tell you a little about it! This is George’s Art Photography Blog’s about page:
” Hi, I’m George.
I’m an aspiring young photographer who has recently participated in a 6-week photography course and has had his photos displayed in a professional art gallery along with other works from young photographers.
I love creative photography and art photography, placing and setting up scenes to photograph, and experimenting with colours, effects and angles. You will find little landscape photography on this blog, yet I hope you will enjoy the photography I will be showing although it may sometimes be abstract or dark! I hope to portray emotion and deep meaning in all of my photographs, but I will also be participating in photography challenges
I hope you like my photos and they are deep and though-provoking and they have a lot to say! “
Firstly; sorry I took so long to reply to all of your comments :-)
Secondly; Friday was the opening night of the photography exhibition. In the course we had been given three themes, and two weeks to complete each theme. The themes were “Fear”, “Emotion”, and ONE image for “Your Life”. I have learnt so much from the course and working with Phil Barrington, a professional photographer, that when its over, I have decided 1. That I am going to start taking part in some online Photography challenges and 2. That I am going to try and find a camera club to join. Taking part in challenges will help me also in building my Portfolio, ready to (hopefully) gain a Bronze Arts Award :)
Anyway, here are my exhibition photos:
I was one of the youngest taking part in the course and I wasn’t always sure about my photos, or their quality, but Phil actually says he likes my photos a lot, especially Dark Expression. I think Dark Expression is quite thought provoking; his blank face could be so many things. I imagine he’s almost trying to play hard but really he feels like crying, he can almost feel the stares of many on his back. But I think my favourites are “Forever Trapped” and “Head In Hands” which were placed just inside the door, besides each other in the gallery :)
I have been creating a huge civ mod, adding promotions, buildings, a new era with new technologies, and more!
I have been doing an art photography course run by Phil Barrington, and have so been busy taking photographs and writing up for my portfolio. At the end of the course, I should be able to gain a Bronze Arts Award. Fingers crossed :-)
So thats pretty much why. Hopefully I will be able to post more soon and catch up with you all!!! :D
This icad was inspired by a photograph I took while on holiday at Deal- Lights on the Horizon at Night.
I again used 4 and 6B pencils, to smudge the colour. I like this style… I think it makes the different areas of lightness merge more smoothly, and the colour looks more solid.
You should try it :-) If you want very light areas, put occasional lines or dashes and smudge them, or smudge a dark area of colour into the white space with your fingertip to get a light area of colour.
This is Lights on the Horizon at Night, the inspiration of my icad… a dark, abstract photograph, with a boat out at sea, its lights shining across the ocean:
