A few weeks ago I managed to meet up with Maxi for another photoshoot. It has been a year since we last saw each other and it felt so good to have him in front of my camera again. We met in in the city with only a vague idea of where we were going to shoot. We started walking and probably ended up wandering around for nearly an hour until we found a nice quiet road. From there we ended up at all kinds of places, getting closer to the city center and the older parts of the city. I love the range of backgrounds we ended up with and it was just nice to catch up with an old friend and realize how much we have changed over the year, in a positive way.

I finally got to take some new pictures of Kathi during the last week I spent in Germany. She hasn’t been photographed in the whole year I was away but luckily it felt as if I’ve never been away in the first place. Now that I’m back in England I just really hope that I’ll keep arranging some photo shoots now and again. I’ve really missed having new photos to edit all the time and being able to upload new ones on Instagram.

It’s been a while since I posted new pictures and it has been nagging me for weeks. I want to take new pictures all the time, but there is this lack of motivation to think of something original and the fear of fucking it up and being disappointed with the results. For four weeks I was back in Germany and planned to take loads of pictures of my friends like I used to when I still lived here. Only now in the last week before I go back to England, I started planning some shoots and it is a real shame. Finally, I could take some new photos of my sister who just got back from Greece with a great tan and blond hair and for a change, I am very happy with the results. Hopefully, I will get to take some more pictures in the next few days and won’t leave my motivation here when I go back again next week.

Evie

Some pictures from when I stayed at Evie’s a few weeks ago. Her mum took us and Evie’s brother to the beach which was the perfect opportunity to take some pictures at a new location. The wind worked perfectly with her long hair and all the people that were walking around us, taking pictures and doing all the touristy stuff didn’t bother Evie at all. I begin to like the public places to take pictures at a lot more, it’s so much more fun. Even though I was staying at hers for a few days, we didn’t manage to take some more pictures at her house which I was originally planning to. There was a lot of sleeping involved and maybe a few drinks too much with the other girls but maybe we’ll be able to take some more the next time.

Catherine

Some pictures I took of Catherine a few weeks ago at school. We were lucky to have a free period together so we went outside where we have a little courtyard with a lake in the middle and classrooms around it. She isn’t only the kindest person I have ever met but also super confident and didn’t mind all the people, teachers and friends who were walking past us to go to the café. There were younger students looking out of the windows and a full common room only 20 meters away and even I felt intimidated by all the people who could potentially be seeing us. She was amazing and I especially love the greenhouse which I wanted to take pictures of for a while now.

Amelia

All you can see on my Instagram at the moment, are the pictures of Daisy and Amelia. I thought I would be able to take more pictures from now on but it turns out that I was just very lucky last week having a few free periods. My exams start in less than two weeks and I am not sure if I have enough time to take and edit more pictures. As you can see Amelia and I went to the same locations as I did with her twin sister Daisy. Due to the lack of time I was never able to take pictures of my friends anywhere else other than on the school grounds. These blossom trees are right next to our art department and I have been waiting for the right moment and the right amount of petals on the ground. It was a much darker day compared to when Daisy’s pictures were taken and we only had a couple of minutes until it started to rain but at one point the wind blew up all the petals from the ground and we were standing in a storm of blossoms.

Taking pictures gets more and more difficult at the moment, I have my camera with me every day but never get to actually use it for myself and my photography. I spend most of my time working on my artwork and revising for tests and stuff so there is not really much time for photography and editing. This week however, I managed to take some pictures of Daisy underneath the blossom trees at school. Two days after that I went to take some more pictures under the same trees with Daisy’s twin sister Amelia, which I will hopefully be able to share with you in a couple of weeks.

A series of Transformations

Even though I never really get to take any pictures of my friends anymore because school just takes over my life, I do sometimes get to create some pretty cool projects. Our new art topic is ‘Transformation’ and even though I mostly concentrate on drawings and paintings, I was able to involve my photography by looking at artist reference from Antonio Mora. One of his photographs called ‘Sad’ has been on my mind for ages after I found it on Pinterest and together with my art teacher I decided to create a series of responses from my own photographs. Luckily I have some beautiful and photogenic friends who were kind enough to help me out so I got Liv, Daisy, Catherine, Maddie, Ciara and Jess to model for me for a few minutes and spent some time on Photoshop and Lightroom to create the final manipulation.

Just a little something to keep this blog going.

Muse: Liv, Daisy, Catherine, Maddie, Ciara, Jess
