  1. At This Space – Last chance!

    May 1, 2009 by cat

    Tomorrow (Saturday 2nd of May) is the final day of the photographic exhibition At This Space. I hope you all get chance to drop by and I really hope that you enjoy it.

  2. Project 365 Days 27 to 38

    April 23, 2009 by cat

    So, with all this exhibition prep you’d be right to think my other projects are getting squeezed for time. In this selection there are two photos that were taken on Why Photography shoots – you’ll have to guess which!

    This is Nick Harris, a GeekUp regular.

    Newly fixed pinhole camera cap for my Canon bodies. Just in time for Pinhole Photography Day – this coming Sunday.

    Kian took me up Rivington – ended up getting a dent in the driver’s door on the car that day! But also went up Rivington for the first time (nevermind living here for 3 years nearly!)

    This is my friend Jenna. She’s somewhat shy around cameras..

    Walnut has turned rather photogenic lately – not like she hasn’t been all along – just more so recently!

    The rest of the gallery.

    Right I’d better go get ready for We Will Rock You!(be warned there be music!).

  4. Project 365 Days 18 to 26

    April 11, 2009 by cat

    Over the last week I’ve been a little busy – last Saturday I went car shopping, Sunday I bought a car and Monday my sister and nephew came to stay for a few days. Now, of course its Easter weekend. Today (Good Friday) bought new Red Dwarf. This had me somewhat excited!

    April 7th 2009 (spring cleaning!)

    April 5th 2009 (ice cream at Fredrick’s post first real drive!)

    April 10th 2009 (shot after dark in the garden)

    All in all its been a busy few days. The next few days I’ve got a few shoots going on for ‘Why Photography?’. Anymore volunteers for it would be great! Especially if you’re not too far from Manchester!

  5. Project 365 beginning

    Well, yesterday was my 21st birthday. Thank you for the lovely messages! I started my new Project 365

    March 16th 2009

    March 17th 2009

    Today I have been sat in the office trying to get prints done for a print sale fund raiser for my exhibition next month. If anyone would like a card with this on the front then let me know. Also if there are any others on the site you’d like then drop me a line.

  6. Birthdays..

    March 16, 2009 by cat

    Today is my 21st birthday. This means pretty much one thing – starting my “new” project – Project 365 is starting again. Since the last one was derailed thanks to the break-in.

    I’m currently scanning negatives from my last few shoots today. I’m quite happy atm. Also writing about the photographic books I’ve been reading recently.

    Also if you fancy dropping by, tonight there is cake and games.

  7. Why photography? First day of shooting

    March 7, 2009 by cat

    Today was the first set of shoots for my project “Why Photography?” which will be exhibited in late April/early May.

    Tootdood’s metaphoto (photograph of a photograph being taken…etc..)

    The first person I was intending to see was Tootdood. He was the first person I could arrange to see about why he does photography. I was very pleased that Tootdood introduced me to AirAdam. Adam agreed to join the project too. Which makes him another of my favorite people!

    While photographing AirAdam, Pixel.Eight wandered across us. Once AirAdam wandered to do some more photography, myself and Pixel.Eight wandered around Market Street, Piccadilly Gardens and upto Victoria train station too, chatting and discussion photography.

    Today I have shot 18 frames on the Mamiya C220 with either the 55mm or 80mm lenses. Been using Kodak Tri-X 400. Gonna dev in Kodak TMAX when I’ve finished the second roll.

    Looking forward to further shooting!
