My Arts Award Journey

I set three challenges for myself: stroboscopic, light painting and photogram photography. 

Stroboscopic photography is a type of long exposure, where the light flashes on a moving object, creating an interesting effect. i found this challenge the most difficult because of all the factors that affect the photo. it took multiple attempts but i had managed to get some good 




I found light painting the easiest to do. It is also a type of long exposure photography, where the whole time the shutter is open, a light is shone at the camera, which is picked up in the photo. Here are my attempts: 


I enjoyed making photograms the most. this is where photos are created without using a camera. an object places onto a photosensitive piece of paper, where it is then exposed to light and then developed. at first, i found it difficult to make these, but i eventually learned and improved from my past mistakes. Originally, i was creating photograms in the bathroom but, I realised, too much light was being let in, so I changed room and the results changed with it:
