L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Show 2013 Opening Show

Wow! What a topsy turvy week this has been!

I photographed the L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival last week and although I've had these images from the opening show sitting dormant on my hard drive for a week, I've only just caught up after last weeks events.

Studio Shooting

On Wednesday we all got inducted into the studio at VCA. Not sure about every one else, but I've been hanging out to shoot in a studio ever since I arrived. Probably not as much as working in the dark room though.

After our induction, I think we were all itching to get our hands on our cameras and get shooting. We had to photograph an image of each person in our class, experimenting with different lights to create a portrait that would eventually end up in black and white. We decided to have some fun with the portraits, with most of them ending up like 80s school portraits gone horribly wrong. 

Also, Ruben also took about 4 of these photographs that I've included in the set including the 2nd, 9th, 11th and 13th photos.

Week One

First of all, I would like to apologise for this blog post that covers more topics than one should ever post. Secondly, I would like to apologise for the overload of iphone photos.

The reasons for this? My trusty Macbook, after three years, has decided to have it's own mind and not co-operate with me at all. This has meant no access to photo shop out of class time at university and lack of blog posts I've had planned due to not having a computer. So I apologise.

Little Updates

Hello lovely followers! I'm sorry I've been a little MIA over the past week or so. I've been living up in Melbourne, enjoying my university orientation week activities and getting ready for my first classes tomorrow (?!) I've also been going out too late into the morning and getting a little bit sick.
University starts tomorrow and I couldn't be more excited to meet everyone properly and see everyone's work and talent! I'm far too eager to be around like minded people and to bond over a single passion that consumes our minds. I met a couple of lovely ladies before and during o-week which have just make me even more excited for this year, no matter how tired/poor I may be! 

Last week I also met with the beautiful and equally as lovely Claire Alice Young who showed me where she collects sea glass and her little hideaway home that is more like a secret tree house. I absolutely adore Claire's work and cannot wait to get to know her better! 

These are a couple of snap shops from my life over the past week. I'll have lots more new work, and maybe a little tour of our photography studios down at the VCA in the next week! 

In the mean time, stay golden, lovely people!
