Why don't you just retire murcan? You've been practicing, it's good, you can keep busy. You don't need work, just give it up ffs.
Took suit to be repaired, and then spent the day on the garage repairing fairings. Yawn.
I went to the olympics!
Yesterday I got the results back from my formal assessment of the first part of my degree course. Good enough for a 2-1 apparently. I was disappointed as it seemed so low, but apparently that's good especially for a first time at this level.
"...could be called a "creative non-fiction" photographer. His photographic practice has always inhabited a space between two contradictory truths. These two truths he describes are that every image is a fiction, but that every photograph is still a representation of the subject. He believes that no picture can ever express the true complexity of the individual yet sees this as liberating. What's important is form, light, color and composition. However, the photographs still emblematically stand for the person portrayed. The truth about fiction leads to playfulness and invention, the truth about representation brings along responsibility as the picture still refers to a world that real people inhabit."
London 2012 Olympics - a set on Flickr
Still got to sort through all the ones of swimmers in the pool, just too knackered at the moment.
Excellent, I like the colours - good set. What camera did you use? Were there any restrictions of use?
Just used the Canon 400D, my 7D hasn't arrived yet Lenses were a 10-20mm wide angle, and a 70-200 Canon f2/8
No restrictions , just had to be able to fit it all in a bag that would fit under my seat at the pool. They did say that you couldn't do flash photography in the aquatics centre (it distracts the swimmers) but everyone with a point n click seemed to be using flash. Atmosphere in the pool was awesome! it really doesnt come across on TV, and was good to see the swimmers and divers practising for a couple of hours before the TV coverage began
I did spend the first 20 minutes in my seat trying not to be dizzy/sick every time I looked at the pool. I was high up, and it was very steep. It felt (at the beginning) that if i leaned forward in my seat, i'd topple off!
