Took Photography as an AS level, because I thought I'd enjoy it.
Well, I enjoyed learning the workings of Cameras and taking pictures. The writing and research, not so much.
Anyway, I think I'll post up any pictures I'm particularly proud of in here, just in case anyone's interested.

Unit 2: We were given Evidence of Human Presence, and so I went for derelict or overgrown buildings.
This is a picture of my door.

These two are of the reservoir under the pumping station I work at. It's truly a fantastic structure. So beautiful.

Nikon D80 with a Standard 35mm lens.
For the coins and the door, as well as the moving bikes I was using a Zoom Lens, pretty good quality I borrowed off my dad

Fisher's probably better to ask, I forget too easily :p
But generally, no matter how independent your work, you had to write about previous photographers who inspired you, you also had to analyse the artistic merits of a photo, why you decided to do a shoot and what makes your photographs good.
You also had to do summaries, justification for doing shoots and planning on what you would take photos of and how you would set it up, etc.

It's not... Hard really it's just...
I dunno. Hard in a different way :p
I don't think about planning, or inspiration, or what makes my photos good, or why I took it the way I did, I just do these things.
So I find it difficult to think of enough bullshit to write down :p
However some people do think like that anyway, and they were the ones that got As!

Nawh! I'm not completely out of thought :p
I spend a lot of time setting things up and getting a good angle, but I'm not conciously thinking about it while I do it.
I just... do, how am I meanna write that into words?!

unit2.cameronfisher.co.uk

That is my current unit 3 for A2 level.
It is nowhere near complete, but it is about half way there.
If I continue to that standard, it should get me an A according to my teacher.

I did make it up, but I very quickly ran out of new and insightful things to say :p
Essentially, trying to do it as an academic subject somewhat smothered the freedom of it.
SO I dropped it and carried on with personal work :D

I would do Sam :p
I have to say, a high quality Wideangle->Telephoto lens is about the best thing ever. So very useful :D
