On four yeah? tip it then

canon eos 40d, tokina 12-24mm lens, tripod, remote release cable, 2x vivitar flashguns with remote triggers, thom brake flash tripod, tim preston water tipper, kettle

for uni i have to do a self portrait, as soon as i heard about it i knew i wanted to tip water over myself.

i really like the gordons gin advert with ramsay getting the water and ice and limes tipped all over him and his expression afterwards. so in my garden at about 1am i decided to attempt the same kind of thing, i think it turned out quite well.

it was seriously cold, like seriously. my head hurt

thanks to tim and thom for helping me.

today me and laurie went to take photos at ANOTHER student protest, we followed the march for ages and eventually it ended up outside the egyptian embassy.

nothing dramatic really happened, i got this photo of a guy shouting something.

we got super cold and went for a post protest mcdonalds (its officially a thing).

tonight i will be mainly playing cod, eating, talking to people on facebook, planning a self portrait assignment and trying to work out how to use my new self timer extension cord thing i bought for my camera.

28 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes, 12 seconds

sony ericsson elm

this morning at about 5am i came across a spider on the side of my bed, it was one of the most disgusting, repulsive, scary things ive ever seen. i got tim to get rid of it.

after that i didnt want to go to bed so i stayed up and watched donnie darko. if theres one film that makes you question your own sanity, that is it.

i finally went to bed and fell asleep at 9am, i woke up at 6.30pm and went to get falafel wraps with tim, alec, thom and joe.

today has been weird.

yesterday / this morning we had some drinks in celebration of phils birthday, then we played pictionary, then we decided to see how many people we could fit in the cupboard with the electricity meter in.

above is joe farley doing his best to get in on top of the nine or so people that were in the cupboard already.

i woke up very late today and felt awful, so i sat at home, got my rent money and learnt about kerning and tracking in type.

canon eos 40d, tokina 12-24mm lens

today i went into central again to find my house mates because i have no keys and they do, this is becoming a weekly thing and i need to sort it out.

i was walking through trafalgar trying to find more photos for my 'people taking photos of each other at famous london landmarks' project and came across this group of girls from argentina.

they were nice and chatty and i suggested they go and visit the science museum, because science is good.

canon eos 40d, tokina 12-24mm lens, sigma flash, off camera flash cord

so after probably the worst start to a post a photo everyday project in the history of blogging, i finally have a working wireless router at my house again meaning i can post from my computer.
this also means that i dont have to bug phil / use college computers and struggle with internet explorer (if you use that browser, stop reading now and download google chrome) anymore.

this makes me happy.

so from now on all posts will be appearing both on blogspot and tumblr looking lovely and well laid out.

above is a picture i took of luxemburg swimming happily in his freshly cleaned out bowl, he loves that shit.

phil bought a nice pot plant for the landing, thom bought a lampshade and i bought this nice lamp.

i love how convex it is, its like having a moving fisheye picture of my room in the corner the whole time, and i like it, a lot.

uploading from camberwell school of art, the computer room is so fucking hot, im sweating.

canon eos 40d, tokina 12-24mm lens

my feet in the middle of a rainy covent garden today, i was planning on going there, and then i wasn't and then i was again as i had no keys to get in at home, and the people that did ( joe, phil and thom ) were there.

we walked around, i contemplated another photo upload from the apple store but thought it would be a bit boring and liked this one too much already.

i've found that i start to kind of know when ive taken the photo that im going to post right as i take it, its weird.

uploading from uni again, our internet comes back in five days and if its not ready by then, im going to travel to 02's HQ and connect it myself.

today at photojournalism school we learnt about flash.

the lesson was long and consisted mainly of our tutor explaining how to use it correctly, then we were told to put these techniques into practice ourselves.

it ended with me taking a photo of lauren looking like a fat child who liked burgers a bit too much and the above photo of laurie looking like a badass.

New year 2011

canon eos 40d, tokina 12-24mm lens, on camera flash

last year my resolution was to post more photos on my blog.
this year i am going to try to take and post a new photo EVERY DAY.

help me.

i have a feeling this is going to be a lot harder than i think it will, i did it for the whole of february last year and it nearly killed me.
im going to be posting on and a new tumblr ive set up, so all you tumblrlovers can follow the 365 days of hell aswell.

above is a photo of joe poole being a sleazy 80s glam rocker, last night i think was best summaried by my good friend thom as 'a mini apocalypse'

happy new year!
