Lets Catch Up

Hello! It's been a while since I've last posted, I'm not the most consistent person when it comes to posting but that is something that I am working on. Anyway, since it has been a while I thought I would catch you up with the ongoings of my life.

Favourite album at the moment: 
My favourite album right now is 'I Am They' by 'I Am They,' an American Christian band. I first heard their music whilst I was at a friends for a barbecue and then again only last weekend when I was in someones car. Since them I have had them on repeat and my favourite song on the album is 'Awake My Love.'

In a previous post you mentioned you were considering the idea of being a Director of Photography. Have you given it anymore thought? 
Honestly I haven't  researched into it since then. I enjoy both writing and photography and have thought in the past of a career that involved them both. Then dismissed it due to thinking it was not feasible. However, I have looked into it and realised it is so I'm working towards that.

How is your degree going? 
For anyone who does not know I am a photography student and I have just completed my second year. I've been blessed with the opportunity to travel quite a bit these past few months and have decided that I would like to add Travel photography as a genre of photography I would like to specialise in.

As part of my degree I have the opportunity to take a placement year, it gives you the chance to gain some work experience. I'm currently in the midst of searching for a placement, I am interested in working for a publishing house, a magazine or shadowing a photographer. Or even doing all three, I don't have to work in one place for the year I have the chance to try each and every venture I'm interested in.

Have you thought about setting up your own business? 
Setting up my own business was something I'd never really considered or thought about. If I was asked I would always say I was unsure, but deep down I didn't think it was for me as I didn't think my work was good enough.

However, my neighbour asked me to photograph her daughter's 7th birthday party, and I loved it!
It was such a wonderful experience and it reminded me why I loved photography especially when I was editing them after. I even enjoyed the editing process and it's a process I usually hate. I was also given the opportunity to watch them react to the photos and they loved them. It was such an encouraging thing to see! I might reconsider the business idea. I've also decided to add events to something I'll specialise in.

Summer plans 

  • Turn 20 - I turn twenty a week on Monday so I'm currently deciding how to celebrate, it's strange to think I will no longer be a teenager. 
  • Find a placement 
  • Read
  • Take pictures
  • Blog
  • Fellowship (Attend Christian young people weekends)

Have you seen all the films you want to see so far this year? 
Sadly not, I missed 'Allegiant' completely due to being to busy with uni work. So I've asked for the Dvd for my birthday. I did manage to see both 'Captain America' and 'The Jungle Book' though and both were very good films although the snake in 'The Jungle Book' was creepy. Unfortunately I missed both 'X - Men' and 'Alice Through the Looking Glass' so I will have to wait till they come out on Dvd. I have been thinking about going to see Now You See Me 2 for my birthday. I really want to see Me Before You but I've listened to the book and it is so sad I don't know if I can face it.
