What I am up to…

Yes yes, I have been somewhat neglectative (is that even a word? Spellcheck says no…) of Stella Was A Diver of recent times. I’m sorry. I have many a-project on the go in work life , in regular life and all forms of life betwixt.

If you hop on over to my new photo blog one photo each day you will see that, in an attempt to get back into doing photography, I am documenting my entire life by taking one photo each day.

I am now also writing all about social media goodness and creativeness on a new collaborative project. That link will follow when there’s a bit more content and stylings sorted.

On the weekend, I “did some culture” and visited the National Portrait Gallery to see, as I do every year, the Photographic Portrait Prize. There’s some amazing photography there, go see it while you can. Some of my favourites below…

(note that the colours and prints are much more incredible “in real life”)

I also made it to The Photographers Gallery, happily settled in its new backstreet Soho home. What a lovely venue. Slightly depressing exhibition subject matter at the moment, however.

Tomorrow, I am very much looking forward to going to see Shutter Island (hooray for having film clients!), there’s some trailerlove for you below. Looks good, no? AND I intend to check out Damien Hirst’s new exhibition at White Cube Hoxton soon. Seeing as I can see it from my desk I think “why not?!”


Photographical goodness

Polaroid

Oooh, a couple of nice little photography projects to chat about this month:

  • The Impossible Project is a collaboration between Urban Outfitters and Polaroid to support the launch of a new Polaroid camera. More on the official website.
  • More analog photography fun at We Share Stories, part of the Singapore Design Festival. Submit your pics to be part of an interactive display.

These both come courtesy of Miss Cakehead’s blog. Merci beaucoup madame!

Ooooooh, came across My Parents Were Awesome a few days ago and meant to blog it – essentially a lovely little photoblog with user-submitted pictures of their parents, back in the day, looking…AWESOME!

What a lovely little viral from Olympus making excellent use of my favourites, stop motion animation and photography!


Russian Exposure

Check out this lovely set of phormagraphs from Russia here (thanks Sell! Sell! for the link) using creative lighting and mega-long exposure.

As a lomo fan I give this a big thumbs up.

Smart one.
