A one-day course for 8 – 18 year olds. To the uninitiated, zines aren’t quite magazines but they are much more than a leaflet. They started out life as fanzines and have taken on their own unique position in the publishing market. You can now pick up zines in galleries, bookshops, record stores, bars and cafes. Making a zine is a totally personal experience, you can pick your theme and decide your own style; children and young people love it. Read More...

For this project review Mark Aitken sent me a selection of 12 environmental portraits from his personal project in process, Sanctum Ephemeral. The word sanctum refers to a safe private place, a refuge, and in each of the photographs the subject is positioned in various poses—standing up, sitting on a chair or floor, lounging, lying on and getting out of bed. This creates a dynamic in which the relationship between the subject and the space of the room is highlighted through the different poses to suggest the sitters’ connection to the story of the room. However, the use of the Read More...

For my third Photofusion Members’ Project Review Katerina Kalogeraki sent selection of 10 photographs from her personal project, Family Portraits: Four Generations, focusing on families from countries “around Europe and one family from Singapore”. The work aims to look at family structures, cultural similarities and differences, and cross-cultural mixing over generations. The colour photographs are all environmental portraits taken in each of the family’s homes, indoors and outdoors. There is no easily discernible reason as to why two photographs have been shot outside the home and I wondered why. In looking at the images these two feel inconsistent with the Read More...

Last Saturday Paul Ellis ran another of our popular summer Location Lighting courses. Here’s his blog about it: Normally in August the sun shines and all is hunky dory but the weather forecast was for heavy rain followed by sunshine followed by heavy rain and so on.

To simulate this we first made an exposure for the sky and then ‘tweaked’ this exposure until Read More...

Paul Ellis followed up his popular Introduction to Studio Lighting course from Saturday 28 June with this blog.

We set up a fairly low-key shot with a halo light placed directly behind our model Kaye and made sure that the exposure for the halo was two stops brighter than the light on her face (which is what we exposed for). The key to this shot’s success was Read More...
