Life of the Party

Holidays, MyPhotography

Dear Readers,

This week, I decided to create and design a variety of “scenes” to photograph. These setups consisted of a range of objects that were centered around one theme (one theme per scene). I then photographed these abstract setups at different and creative angles. The result of my experimentation is below.

P.S Same blog, new layout! Let me know what you think of either the post or the new theme in the comments!

Avignon – France Tour

France Tour, Holidays, MyPhotography, Travel

Dear Readers,

As you may have read from my previous post, I was recently touring the beauties of France. Avignon is another of the many places we visited during the tour, its main and most well known feature a bridge called Pont Saint-Bénézet, known more commonly as Pont d’Avignon. This bridge was the inspiration for the song ‘Sur Le Pont d’Avignon’. The bridge was built between 1177 and 1185 and is now a major attraction of Avignon. Another major landmark of Avignon includes Palais de Papes which translates to ‘Pope’s Palace’. Photographs of this can also be seen in the portfolio below. The Gothic building was opened in 1364 and is simply beautiful inside, taking a floor space of 15 000 meters squared. Enjoy the photos!

Amboise – France Tour

Holidays, MyPhotography, Travel

Dear Readers,

A few weeks ago, Australian students were on holidays! I was fortunate enough to be able to go on an amazing tour around France, experiencing so many unforgettable places and making many memories. The portfolio below includes the photographs I took of one of the places we visited – a town called Amboise. This place is significant as it was the hometown of Leonardo da Vinci as he reached the end of his life. The town is on the banks of the Loire river and is 27 km from Tours (a city). Enjoy!

Passion Project Wk 7

MyPhotography, Passion Project

Dear Bloggers / Photographers,

So, this is our last week completing our passion projects! Hasn’t it shot by swiftly… Over the course, I have learnt and gained an immense toolbox of skills – from never even holding a DSLR camera to mastering and learning the many techniques.

Though how will I present the project? I have created a photo book with Snapfish. Snapfish is an abundant site that works with photos and presenting beautiful accessories for different occasions. The service caters for many specialising in stationary, books and more!

– calendars

– stationary

– photobooks

– more!

To display and showcase some of my best and most interesting photographs, I have created a photo book with Snapfish to share on the day of presentation, which will be Thursday, 18 June.

The camera I used will also be on display along with its case. I will also be bringing an antique Brownie camera to ‘contrast’ the two. The photo book will be resting on a stand, which is supposedly designed to hold a cookbook whilst cooking.

In case of an emergency, where the photo book doesn’t arrive on time, I will be using my laptop and presenting the preview of the photo book online.

Hopefully, everything goes to plan! I will be posting some pictures of the final printed copy of the book once it arrives!

Olivia, writing (and photographing) on a whim…
