Revisiting my Photograph from the Summer

For our final surprise brief of sorts we were tasked to revisit the photograph that we had to take before leaving for Falmouth. Which could be of a anything that I love most about living in Sheffield. I decided to take a candid shot of my best friend whilst we were sat on the grass at our local park. As one thing I knew I would miss most was spending time with her after work in the evenings. 

Looking back I definitely have developed a lot as a photographer although I still have a very long way to go. I had no idea about a lot of technical things, I wasn't shooting in RAW and I think my general eye and approach is much better now. 

I was hoping that my decision to specialise in press and editorial photography would make more sense to me once I started studying the course and in many ways it has. I am really interested in curation and writing about contemporary art which the course is allowing me to do, but I am still not sure what I want to do with my own photographic work and how much I want it to form and serve my professional identity. What I do know is that I am getting better at using my medium and I have already made money from it since starting this course which has lifted my spirits and given me a new sense of purpose. 

I am both anxious and excited to venture into the world of analogue photography but I look forward to the challenges the New Year brings.
