Ever since they came out, Lomo cameras have always caught my eye. Now I'm thinking about treating myself to one for my 21st birthday in October. This is the camera I would like to be my starter and then maybe I will move onto to something more technical when I've learn more about analogue photography.
This is a pretty big investment though as I have t consider developing prices and film costs, but I love analogue photography so the price shouldn't be a big issue.
These are a few images of my work from my first year at University. At the beginning of the year I quite experimental in my approach to projects, and would work with anything. But towards the end I began to be more selective with my research material, research from unconventional sources such as films, finding materials and textures that interested me. Materials I mainly worked with were found materials in the scrap box (my favorite place to find fabrics), satin is so wonderful with heat transfer process, wallpaper painted with heat transfer dyes create exciting textured prints and Dercolin (for bleaching fabrics). I've had the most exciting year studying Textiles Design and I am thoroughly looking forward to going back in September.
