What if . . . Leeds Smiled?

The problem we cam across was casicaly the people of Leeds dont smile enough, so we were going to solve this by coming up with a way of making them smile as they walk through town.

Sophie Robinson
Martyn Wooley
Rebecca Liggins
we collected evidence to show out problem, we took photographs of the city ccentre on a very wet and grey day and eveyone looks very miserable, this primary source was most usefull as it was visually supportin our problem. We also did a survery and asked people to give us words that describe Leeds and most of them were negative being buisy, grey and corwded. this gave us both quantative data that we used to make qualataive data aswell.

ok so maby im taking this a bit seriously but i AM GOOOOD!
my first attempt at this creative cake building may not ahve gone so well but my second attempt was a CORKER
see for your self . . .

this is the first batch that has EVER looked slightly hopefull, a little secreat of mine now to making these little mirical muffins, and the colours well they are just a nice treat for you all.

ok so i may have cheated a little bit with the alphabet cut out shapes but when i tried free hand it was HORRIFIC, crummies everwhere and as for the letters . . .!
Little did i know that u could buy BLACK food colouring, so yes i had to buy it and black icing looks a little weird and gross however, the hundereds and thousands helped them to look AWOMSE, oooh this litte H&T getting everwhere
so BRING IT ON graphic design!

misleading communication

said one thing and meant another, or acted completely differently than how u felt? yep we all do it. took some photographs just to experiment with this concept visually, they work in quite a sarcastic way i think and if not they are just a laugh to look at.
aswell as showing what we are secreatly thinking, ivlooked at body language, and how we can put up these barrieres subconciosly sometimes. here the girl (yes she is my twin) has her arms folded across her chest showing a physical barrier from the guy (Chris her bf)

Digital Photography

These are just two of the photographs that i have taken in my digital photography elective, i was using a 70-200 zoom lence and using the studio lighting.
i was looking at depth of field, something that i though i understood but when i put it into practice found i didnt really know what i was doing, so after our session on Tusday about the SLR camera i used my elective session to run over these teniques.
The first image is using a small depth of field where i have focused on the forgroud objects, adn the second images is where i used a long depth of field where i focused the camera on the background objects.
