I want to open up part three with some self portraiture I have previously taken. Both images are very different in nature and depict different things and very different styles of photography. One is a boring selfie (albeit with an interesting backdrop) and the other needs more thought. Let’s see where I go in this part with this type of work.
The wind of change.
I’m the one with the camera in the above image! Hi.
What kinds of subjects can be classed as unseen?
socially deprived people
concentration camps e.g where some of this is off-limits to the public
How do you go about photographing the unseen.
research the subject
see how it has been done before, it is has and think how you will do it in your style
apply for permission, be honest, be open and be prepared to accept rejection
believe in what you want to do, so others will have your conviction
pursue your dream with vigour
highlight the benefit of your project to the owner/person responsible
be confident in what you want
have an understandable goal that others can see and understand
Photographically, this is where I have been for the last few weeks, which has moved my concentration off my degree for a short spell. Varied and interesting is how I would describe it.

I have also been sorting out my website and setting up my Facebook business page.
Please have a look around both.
My work is also now on a number of websites and Facebook pages a few of which are below.
