I have been taking pictures my whole life but it wasn't until 5 years ago that I started to take it seriously. I am currently working on my photo minor. I have taken Photo I, Photo II, and Electronic Imaging, and am currently enrolled in Digital Photo, Photo III and Photo History. I shoot, process and print my own film, as well as mount and matt my own images. The largest film image I've printed is 11x14, the smallest is 35mm. I've used 35mm and 120mm film in 35mm and Holga cameras, and printed on RC and Fiber photo paper. I have participated in at least 20 classroom critiques.
Currently I am working with cyanotype I have ordered and some I have made. I am learning studio work using a computer and digital camera along side 4x5 film and camera. I have also made a pinhole camera and shot 100 iso 35mm film, and used 5x7 and 8x10 canister pinhole cameras to make paper negatives, then paper positives.
I also make my own digital prints, the largest being 13x19. I
When I moved to France eleven years ago my husband was still working and he wanted to keep the small weekend boat that we had in Cambridgeshire so that he could escape for weekend and relax in beautiful surroundings. That was OK while he was working in the south of England, but suddenly he was offered a contract in the Caribbean and within two weeks he was gone.
He never had time to sort out the boat before he went, or even to visit it and remove personal stuff and make sure she was clean and tidy. Fortunately she has always been kept in a marina where they have done their best to keep her safe. Sadly that did not include keeping her in good repair, but she was stored out of the water and was in a secure yard, so at least she was safe.
Now my husband has retired and joined me in France and one of the things we knew we must make a priority was to go to England and sort out the poor old Ostfreise so that we could sell her.
Our first idea was to rent a cottage so that we could take the dogs with us and stay near to the boat yard - make it a working holiday. Unfortunately I couldn't find a reasonably priced, dog friendly cottage to rent nearby, so that idea was a non-starter.
So I started to search the small ads for something a bit bigger and found a trailer tent for sale. What a wonderful thing it is - bigger than a caravan, two double bedrooms off the ground and two singles underneath the doubles, a kitchen, toilet and loads of space that all packs into an easy to tow trailer! It's a really amazing thing!
So we arrived in Dover on a beautiful sunny day and I'm glad to say that this is the weather that we had for most of the two weeks. The campsite is attached to the marina, so all we had to do to work on the boat was walk across the field. It's very beautiful there in Earith and the marina has a lot of visiting wildlife, including a couple of seals and a herd of geese (yes, I know it's called a gaggle!) woke me up very early every morning!
We found Ostfreise in a very dark and dismal corner of the boat yard, so we started work and waited for them to be able to lift her out and put her somewhere a bit nicer!
Eventually she was clean inside and out and was ready to be painted. At this point we thought that the weather might change so she was again moved into a big tent so that she could be painted with no worries about rain.
