Here are the first examples of the set building exercise that took place yesterday in the studios. One of the sets that the students had to build was a section of brickwork with a drainpipe and grate, the lighting was to reflect and impersonate that of natural light, the examples have done this to a very high standard and you would be hard pressed to tell that they have not been taken outside.


Photographers Brigid Vinnell, Holly James and Wu Yuanqi

Janne Parviainen uses a light painting technique in his personnal photography. The most common subjects are city environments and nature landscapes. All of the photography has been carried out within the camera – there is very little post production done to the image.

Hello past and present MSC students.

Exposing the Wild are looking for some images that will be used for a charity. Specifically images of hedgehogs, we need a cute image to be used on a postcard. The idea is that people will send the postcard back to the charity with information of where they saw the hedgehog. They will then collate the information which will be part of the hedgehog survey that they are about to launch.

Additionally, the charity are looking for film footage of hedgehogs to use in the media as part of the survey. Being a charity there will be no payment but the image and footage will be accredited to the image maker through Exposing the Wild. It is an excellent opportunity to get your name out there if it is not already.

The image must be captioned with the Exposing the Wild captioning system. For more information on the system please see here (http://www.exposingthewild.com/captioning/system.html). If you have any questions please get in touch with Samuel Waldron or Peter Moonlight @ exposingthewild@googlemail.com.

Please send the images to the same email address as above, we will contact the person(s) who are successful. Ideally the image was needed yesterday so please hurry.

Thank you and with kind regards,

Samuel Waldron

The RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch returns this weekend! Put simply, they implore anyone and everyone to sit for an hour watching their own garden and recording the birds they see against an ID sheet. The collated results help form a better picture of the changing fortunes of birdlife across the UK, especially as the picture builds up year on year from each of these events. It’s also a relaxing, fun way to enjoy your own garden and the wildlife in it that you might not have properly noticed if you haven’t previously taken the time to just watch.

You can do your hour at any time this weekend (29th or 30th Jan 2011).

Richard Brittain

This set has a feel of the chill, grey days of winter. But Richard Brittain has turned this to his advantage. The silver grey skies have complemented the stark, utilitarian equipment. ‘Gas-valve’ is especially effective with just enough rust alleviating the white/grey theme. It also was good to resist the obvious by turning the gasometer (Tower) into a silhouette. The ‘Telephone mast’ and the ‘Gas pumps’ are a bit too dull as subjects for them to respond to this treatment, but the ‘Gas tower’ looks like it has more potential, a tighter picture, perhaps? Back on track with the electrical insulator in ‘Don’t touch’, a fascinating image. It’s so rewarding when such mundane objects make good photographs.
