Tower Bridge

I think we’ve all got to do it at some point it but unfortunately, I’ve done it so many times!! Tower Bridge is great for photography because you can see so many different things at different times. This includes lights, boats, people and the weather.

Frankenstein Festival

An extra special festival celebrating the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein or the Modern Prometheus.

Through immersive theatrical events, hands-on activities and experimental storytelling we explore the ethical, scientific and technical questions surrounding whether or not we should create ‘life’.

Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew

After purchasing the new Nikon D500, I thought it would be great to explore the Royal Botanic Gardens within Kew to see what it really could do.

I’m still trying to properly understand the settings within this camera so you’ll see multiple different versions of these shots.

Aperture / Depth of Field

Aperture is a hole in the lens that you can control to affect the amount of light you receive in the camera body. Essentially, this can change whether you focus on something nearer to you or further away.

This homework is to change the depth of field and see how that changes each image.

Unit 1 – Telephoto

This was the first class which meant that the homework was set to focus on real close up images. We’ve not been allowed to change anything via the camera or any software.

Telephoto 

– Objects look nearer to each other and to the camera
– More proportional – less distortion
– Much less background
– Zoom lenses – several lenses in one lens
– Wide angle:
– Plenty of background information – wide shot
– Objects look further away from each other
– Objects at the front look larger and much smaller towards the background

Blogging

I have actually been blogging for just under a year now…as short as that!! It’s a very short time and I’m still in the position of properly focusing on what I should discuss and focus on each week. I’ve always been a big-time nerd when it comes to both my laptop and phone but I’m just starting to move forward towards photography as well so I’m thinking that may be a way forward. I’ll tell you about the things that I’ve been doing recently…

FitBit

I’ve decided to increase my activity each day by walking, running and cycling around London after a swim in the morning. To do this, I’ve bought a Fitbit Charge 2 to ensure I’m always on track and increasing the distance each day.

Seizures

Unfortunately, I had another seizure a few weeks ago which was the worst one I’ve had in the last few years.

One of the benefits? It’s a new Hospital that I haven’t been to before to add to my list!! 10 so far since the injury back in 2014! 👩‍⚕️👨‍⚕️

MyID – Medical ID Bracelet

I didn’t really want to openly admit that I have Epilepsy but after having multiple seizures out in public, I thought it was necessary. The decision after searching many different websites was to purchase a MyID Sport Medical ID Bracelet. It allows others to scan the QR Code through their mobile and understand what’s happening before potentially dialling 999.

DJI Mavic Pro & GoPro

I’ve recently purchased both a DJI Mavic Pro and a GoPro Hero 5 with the hopes of creating great videos.

Let’s see how it goes!!

Epilepsy 

I actually received Epilepsy back in 2014 when I fell down a large number of stairs in Las Vegas. I do not remember Las Vegas at all apart from when I heard about it all when in Hospital. It was actually my first time in Las Vegas so we spent our first day just having fun and going to different parties. I do not remember even going but apparently, I fell down a large number of stairs when walking back to a hotel after multiple parties.

When clicked through to the main story, you’ll be able to see that I actually lost half of my skull. This now means that I have had to have a Cranioplasty surgery to have a plastic section of my skull to make it look normal again.
