A few empty cans of cider

Clifton Suspension Bridge and Goldney Hall, Bristol

A few experiments with pinhole photography from the past year (there were a lot more that didn’t turn out so well). They were all taken with pinhole cameras made from empty cans, black card and photographic paper. Instructions of how to make the cameras and develop the photos can be found here:¬†http://pinholeday.org/support/

I thought, ‘It’s like it is burning’ and then I remembered that it was.

Recently I’ve been inspired by a friend’s work to have a go at working more freely and try and work from my imagination rather than copying photos all the time. It’s been hard, after doing A-level I’ve got so used to working in a really restricted way. If I try to draw something off the top of my head, I have no idea where to start. So I’ve been making myself work from life or my own drawings to try and crack my photo addiction. This one was a bit of an¬†experiment. I worked completely from what I could remember from the sunset I’d seen earlier. And I forced myself to finish it, which is quite rare for me.
