This is the final edit of my images for the summer project “Insomnia”. I had these printed out at 8″x10″ at Asda (http://www.asda-photo.co.uk/). They were displayed in the above order side by side in uni. I was really surprised and also disappointed to realize that the work we had done over the summer wasn’t going to be graded or marked as such. The images were intended to open discourse, if we wanted. I did get to speak about my work but not in great depth, and I got asked questions too, some of which came from people who hadn’t read the accompanying Artist Statement which describes our work, what we did, how we went about it and what we were trying to capture, it is there to provide further understanding to the work and background information along with any further information that may be relevant. I set out to capture feelings about insomnia and how it affects me, I have found that my insomnia is caused mostly by subconscious anxiety and there isn’t much I can do to cure it, I have also learned how to shoot in lit, night-time conditions to capture movement and I am happy with the images I produced. My understanding of aperture, ISO and shutter speed has been made clearer and I have other things that I would now like to try in the future.
All images shot with Pentax K2000, edited with Photoshop CS3 and printed by Asda.
