52 Week Project: Week 1

For the new year i decided i would be more pro active with my camera and try a new little project to keep me motivated. I decided upon a 52 week project where i took 1 photo and uploaded it to the blog and other networks flickr etc.

Last friday i got the chance to go out for a few hours with a friend and take some photos around Holbeck and Clarence Dock, so the image i have chosen is more on a urban theme in terms of graffiti. It is a very good piece of art and i thought i would like to show the photograph i took of it. It has a more street photograph/urban feel to it.

2015 52 Week Photo Project

I got the idea of a little project for 2015 to keep me out taking photos and blogging them, i have seen on the Talk Photography forum that i go on that they do a 52 week project with a certain theme etc, in that sense i cant really commit myself to a 365 project as i am too busy with work and like the last attempt forget to post.

I will be choosing to just go with the flow, no specific theme or anything and my rules i can take the photo on either my camera or with my iphone. I will then blog it and post to my flickr page.

Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year

Seasons Greetings all, I would like to take this moment to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy new year and all the best for 2015, thank you to all my blog followers and the support you gave me and especially the good luck messages ahead of my exhibition back in August. Here is to hoping 2015 will be even more successful and hopeful of more exhibitions in the future.

Merry Christmas and a happy new year

Light Painting at Roundhay Park 22/11/2014

On saturday (22/11) i joined up with some members of the Talk Photography forum for another meet and some more light painting experiments in a different location, Roundhay Park was my suggestion and there were a few added members that turned up who missed the previous months Brimham Rocks meet. I left earlier due to it being incredibly cold and windy.

Below are a few photos from the meet that i have processed and come out with.

Plans are in place for a general monthly meet, i am unable to make the christmas time meet but will join up in new year to go some exciting new places and learn some more techniques.

New Flickr Page

I have decided to do away with my previous flickr stream and create a new one as there were too many images to remove and sort out, so decided out with the old in with the new, you can find my new flickr here.

TP Brimham Rocks Light Painting Meet

I recently joined a photography forum called Talk Photography after my old college tutor suggested it to me previously when i went out to photograph the Leeds Light Night event.

On Saturday i joined up with a few members from the forum at Brimham Rocks and took part in a light painting session which proved very successful in terms of images.

Below are a few of the images i liked the most.

Leeds Light Night 2014

Hello All.

Last night i went into Leeds City centre for the annual Light Night event for a meet up with the Leeds Street Photography facebook group members, it was the first time i had been to this event as in previous years i was working so thought it would be a good opportunity to get some photos, unfortunately i didn’t have the best of evenings photo wise as the crowds were way too big in places, I do however have a couple to share.

Busy image uploading and site changes

After some feedback during the exhibition and some visitors of this site i decided to make some layout changes including a whole new lighter theme as previous choice was too dark and unable to view some images on some occasions and also a new price list which now includes the option to digital downloads, and  in the past week i have taken my External hard drive out, changed the layout of the site and started uploading some new photos and some older ones i had not got round to yet, still a work in progress when time allows me. http://www.robertdickinsonphotodesign.co.uk/

I have also recovered my flickr account so will be sorting that out aswell and uploading there photos from events i have covered such as Varsity in 2012 and 2013 and the CRUK supporters conference. You can find my flickr profile here https://www.flickr.com/photos/robert-dickinson-photography/.

I have also recently joined another group on facebook called “Leeds Street Photography” focusing on just the art of street photography in one location, this has given me idea to reboot my street photo project and join up on the upcoming meets.

That is all for now.
