First blog post – About me.

Hi, I’m Kirsty. I’m from the North East of England and I love photography.

This blog is going to be my Critical Research Journal for my MA Photography. A masters in photography!!! I never dreamed I’d be doing this!

A little back story, I’ve had a camera in my hand since I was small. Family members would give me their cast offs and without any film in them, I’d go round taking my pictures. I finally advanced to getting film and then onto digital.

When I started my degree with The Open University I had the opportunity to take a 10 week Digital Photography course, it was here I found I have a bit of an abstract eye. I enjoy showing people a scene they may have seen lots of times but from a slightly different viewpoint!

This was one of the first images from that course in 2009 . Yes I might do it differently now but it’s all part of the learning curve.

Since then I’ve dabbled, I’ve taken another 10 week OU course which collaborated with the RPS of which I’ve also become a member. By completing my MA I want to become a more well rounded practitioner of the art and the science. I want to be taken out of the comfort zone and have my skills tested (I was honestly surprised to get through the portfolio stage of the application process!) but most of all I want to prove to myself I can do it. I don’t just take photos I am a photographer!!!
