Trees and Stuff

 Hope you've all been enjoying the festive season by listening to Mariah Carey's 'All I Want For Christmas Is You' a concerning number of times.
A couple of days ago I took some pictures with a Holga Turret Lens ; I really liked the lo-fi images that can be created really quite easily.I found the 'colour filter turret' worked well when shooting woodland areas and instantly made the images  more interesting-  the options on  'special lens' turret I thought were better suited to buildings/etc.
The pictures below were taken using the yellow filter/one of the many kaleidoscope-y options on the turrets.

 I definitely need to continue using this lens on varying subject matters to reach its full potential - I think it could create some really interesting portraits.But for now I thought I'd share a few of these dark blurred pictures of trees and stuff.

Blue Christmas

Ok so I've been pretty distant from this blog , lots of stuff going on like school etc. etc. , but I thought I'd share with you guys some stills from a new short that I've been working on.
I wanted to create a mainly visual piece , trying to focus on the colour palette/framing/change in focus as opposed to story line. 
I'm planning to overlay the visuals with  a spoken rendition of "In The Bleak Midwinter" - highlighting the themes of Christmas and juxtaposing colder elements of the festive season with the lights/magic/warmth.

 Also , Shia LaBoeuf is doing a  performance art piece in Liverpool , as part of FACT's exhibition 'Follow' this weekend , and I'm freaking out because I desperately want to see him/meet him so that I can talk to him about art and conspiracy theories and  Even Stevens.
I'll keep you updated on whether or not I get to meet an actual cannibal Hollywood superstar,
