Capturing with Peppermintswirls | Multiple Exposure

I’m excited to launch a brand new series on the photography section of Distinctivemode – Capturing with Peppermintswirls! Every month we are setting out, to both capture our own responses to a topic. This month, we set out to accomplish the task of creating multiple exposures and it was great fun! Head over to Betsy’s blog to check out her creations!

The Portraiture Archives

Recently, I have been sorting out my photography documents and rediscovered archives of old photographs, that I had once discarded presuming to be bad quality. Falling in love, I had to share them, and now vow to continue to save all of my edited photos to one big folder, so that I never have to sift through dated folder after dated folder again! I can’t wait to get shooting with some more portraiture! Enjoy!

In The Light

After months and months of GCSE photography coursework (of which is still live and unable to be published), I have finally completed the 10 hour exam! I found that my love for photography was stripped from me during the course and am very thankful to have finished – a school exam-based ritual did not fit with my style of creativity, and I found the topics restricting at times. My latest exam project involved slicing fruit and shining light through it, to create abstract works and actually, I found it enjoyable, allowing me to develop my own photographic style. There were drawbacks but also advantages to the subject; one thing’s for sure, I learnt a lot about how to use my camera! This is my first of many sequence projects that I now plan to set out and capture! This post is all about the use of light! For the background, I used a dark reflective surface, put some crinkled kitchen foil in the background, and used a tripod to shoot whilst lighting the foil with a desk lamp. I found that F5.6 (Av) worked best to really capture the light!

The Unnerving Portrait

 

This piece came about during a photography assignment, looking into the art of textures. Originally, after inspiration from Mani Craciunescu, I set out to capture fish eyes and textures but after ten weeks, one simple clause title had developed into an unnerving portrait. It has been a stretch and a new angle to create art that is some what a form of ‘creepy’ however it really has boosted my creativity! I’m sorry to those who are squeamish! I’ll be back to my oh so pretty works very very soon!
