The deadline for my photography coursework is drawing ever nearer (13th February!) so I’ve been pretty occupied with photographing, editing and putting my workbook together. The brief is surrealism, so we have looked at a few different techniques to inspire our final pieces. One of these was ‘colour filters’ which I did yesterday. I decided to go along to St Mary’s lighthouse to take photos for it, however it was so bitterly cold that we had to turn back and go along in the car later. When the weather gets warmer, I hope to go back and photograph it using film. As it was so cold, the automatic focusing on my camera was being a bit of a pest, meaning I had to focus manually. If you have never tried to focus manually whilst being blown over by the wind AND wearing mittens, then you won’t know how difficult it is. Consequently a lot of my photos were slightly out of focus, but I feel I got some good ones.
