My name is Jessica Jennings and I am currently in my second year of study of photography at the University of Portsmouth.
In this Blog I will record my experience and set-up during my work placements, any photo-shoots and anything that has inspired my work.
I am currently working on an exhibition show for the end of the year with 7 other photographers on the picturethis. project. To find out more and keep up to date with this project, please click the picturethis. button on the right hand side of my blog.
Had a great but really tiring day photographing the Easter & Spring Festival of Football at Bognor Regis May Day 2013 working with Rayner Photo yesterday!
Photographer Jason Brown let me follow him around Marwell Wildlife park today! He taught me how to take photos of animals in the wild and what settings are best to use on my camera.
He also taught me the best times to visit the enclosures and what times the animals will be at their most active.
I got to shoot The RAG Ball yesterday with photographer and close friend Jake Ratcliffe! It was awesome!
Had my first shadowing experience with wildlife photographer Jason Brown today! He showed me the correct angles to take photos of animals and how to shoot animals in motion. He brought his lovely dog Dakota along so that I could practice taking photos of her!
Thank you SO MUCH to everybody who came along to our opening night tonight. It was amazing, over 100 people… Don’t forget, our work will be on the walls at the arts lodge cafe until late next week so if you’re still to have a look, you know what to do!
Group meeting today!
The school workshop hasn’t gone to plan and has been cancelled..
Its the day before the workshop and I’m really swamped with work, I’m not sure I’ll be able to make it! I also don’t have a CRB.. I’m not sure how well tomorrow will work out!
We have decided that maybe having live music will distract from the photography private opening night on Friday and that the event should be open more to the public as it will attract more people. I myself am a little worried that we will have a lot of food and drink and not enough people.
I’m gonna make a little poll because not everyone voices their opinion which makes things really difficult to sort out if not everyone is happy.
I hope that everyone votes and gives their honest answer and not just what they think they should vote for to please the group.
