Music Inspiration-Nightwish Nemo

Listening to this song while writing my ideas really helped me think about the meanings I wanted to put across in my work. The video causes you to use your imagination to think about and wonder what is going on. I’ve listened to the song and watched the video many times, but I still don’t really know whats going on in them. My imagination keeps thinking up new ideas that the video could be about, feeling lost, loneliness, anger, about finding yourself, insomnia, it could be about anything.

Inspiration for my Summer Task Poem

While I was writing my summer task poem, looking at all the photographs that held so many memories of my summer, I was listening to the soundtrack for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2. It is an instrumental cd so it made it easier for me to focus on writing the poem with the music in the background. The track that mostly helped me in writing my poem was track 1 Lilly’s theme, this music is entwined within many of the tracks on the cd, especially Snape’s Demise track 16 and Severus and Lilly track 17. Listening to the cd really helped me create my poem about memories and love.

theonecam.com And how it inspired me

I was given a link to this website http://theonecam.com/ by my boyfriend David and I really liked the ideas behind the work and the images. The images on the website have really inspired me throughout my Lego project and I have been looking at the images for help on how to light certain things.

The images make me wish I had a macro lens for my camera, but I will have to make do with what I have and see what results I can create.

Talk Talk Advert

I love this talk talk advert, it inspires me to have a go at light graffiti myself. I am certainly not going to do anything as elaborate as the advert, but I may use glow sticks to try to write in the air. Using a slow shutter speed to capture the whole picture. I also want to capture light trails from cars using the same method.

Two of my attempts at capturing moving light. I like the lines of light, but I need more traffic, so I may go to a motorway bridge at night to photograph with a tripod. I do like these shots though and want to try many more.

Placebo-Protege Moi

C’est le malaise du moment
L’épidémie qui s’étend
La fête est finie on descend
Les pensées qui glacent la raison
Paupières baissées, visage gris
Surgissent les fantômes de notre lit
On ouvre le loquet de la grille
Du taudis qu’on appelle maison

Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me
Protect me

Protège-moi, protège-moi {x4}

Sommes nous les jouets du destin
Souviens toi des moments divins
Planants, éclatés au matin
Et maintenant nous sommes tout seuls
Perdus les rêves de s’aimer
Le temps où on avait rien fait
Il nous reste toute une vie pour pleurer
Et maintenant nous sommes tout seuls

Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me
Protect me

Protect me from what I want (Protège-moi, protège-moi)
Protect me from what I want (Protège-moi, protège-moi)
Protect me from what I want (Protège-moi, protège-moi)
Protect me
Protect me

Protège-moi, protège-moi
Protège-moi de mes désirs
Protège-moi, protège-moi

Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me
Protect me

In English…translated…..

It is the uneasiness of the moment
The epidemic that spreads
The feast is finished one descends
The thoughts that freezes the reason
Fallen lids, gray face
Emerge the ghosts of our bed
One opens the latch of the grid
Of the hole that one calls home

Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me
Protect me
Protect me, protect me {x4}

Are we the puppets of destiny
Remember the divine moments
Hovering, exploded to the morning
And now we are all alone
Lost the dreams to like itself/themselves
The time where one had anything makes
We have a whole life to cry
And now we are all alone

Protect me from what I want
Protect me from what I want
Protect me…

This song is beautiful, I listen to it while doing my work and it helps me to think of new ideas. I just wanted to share its meanings and feelings with you. It makes me think of the amazing photographs of Ansel Adams, how they flow when you look at them.

I approach each of my photographs with an idea of what I want to achieve in my head. But I also work with the environment, letting it change the way I photograph the place with its energy flow. This is how this song has influenced me.

William Henry Davies-Leisure

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.

No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.

No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.

No time to turn at Beauty’s glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.

No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.

A poor life this is if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

This is my favourite poem. I was inspired by it in my first term to create a series of images showing how humans are destroying the natural environment. I thought it fit quite well. I once again love the images the poem can conjour up in your mind. It is beautiful. My work is inspired by poetry because I like to have a meaning in all of my images, sometimes hidden but with a little digging you can find it. I also like people to make up their own minds as to the meaning of my images, I do not like to steer them in one direction.

Inspired by the Renaissance

These images were taken using the Renaissance’s idea of light and perspective. I think the link is quite hard to see unless you know there’s a link, but it is subtle. I focused on the light part of Renaissance art, because it is something I can carry on in to my photography, such as in these photographs.

I walked to a nearby park, and found the lake frozen over with little blocks of ice in. I really liked how the light seemed to turn the ice into glass, and how the ducks, swans and geese were mirrored in the ice. This gives my images a surreal feel, and gives them depth. The ice glistens with the light, showing the cracks and textures on the ice blocks. I am really glad that I saw the lake when it was frozen over.
