Hey again. I managed to find some time and work on pics from an AQA Photography training that had happened on the beginning of this month. In the nutshell we have been learning how to teach photography at GSCE level (so it’s official I am train to do now those photo lessons with my 16’s that I have been doing since September).

Funny to say, this training had sense (how many of you’ve been ever spending unproductive hours on some boring, useless, dull training, thinking that it’s just a waste of time and your company should better invest those couple hundred quit in some valuable stuff, for example beer for YOUR personal use or at least paintballing – you could get relaxed a bit and there isn’t many things better than shouting your boss in the ….). Anyway as I said it was very good, mostly because our lecturer really knew what he was talking about.  No small talk, just pure info.

I’ve just been back from my photo night at Dunchurch Photographic Society where we were holding an expert critique evening with Graham Hodgkiss. I have to say that it is a very satisfying thing to listen to someone that knows an awful about the craft and has been doing it for longer that I’ve lived. Mr Hodgkiss has very wide knowledge, both in principals of photography and in post processing and he made the evening very interesting.  As usual level of submitted pictures varied.  I put two of my own ones. One pic of Ange, my flatmate, and one that has been taken in October in St Davies cathedral.  Happily none of them have been rubbished.

Comment about first one was that the face is too still and it would improve a lot by engaging mouth a bit more. So be prepared Ange, I will practice on you pretty soon.

Every one heard about the earthquake in Japan. It is so terrible that hard to imagine.  Like s-f movie.  I have a friend who is Japanese and who’s family live there.  Fortunately neither she nor any of her close one died. Tomoko and other language assistants, Nuria, organized collection for those who had not have so much luck. Those little tags have been made by them.  Well done.

Of course do not need to add that everyone bought them! And if you did not ,you know where to go.

Just recently I have participated in “Whats It Like” project, which intends to uncover the feelings about the home/ space and share the general feeling about it. I think that this is a good idea and very good way to show and explore places from around the world. My work is in the second volume. And If you fancy to check some other people stuff, the link is here:

Ok, as I promised here it is – Puck crown. I have lots of fun while preparing it. You should see me going around school grounds and collecting branches. Level of attention – extra high; expression on pupils’ faces – priceless. I am honest; I know they think I got bunkers.

Tam, Tam, Tam…. Here it is, one and only.

And how I made it?

I started with creating an ivy wreath (what a difficult word by the way wreath is, impossible to remember). Then I add some twigs with buds (all connected with garden wire). Another ivy circle to make it stable and some stems on side. Finally I sprayed it gold and add some odd beads. Simple .


So as I am an expert of woodland headgears and appeal to all mighty druids, weird creatures, kings of forests and so on, if you need new and trendy wood- mythological stuff – you know where to find me.

Hej, hej, o straszliwi królowie lasów, mądrzy druidzi, zaczarowane elfiątka i inne stwory różnej maści – jeśli trzeba wam leśnych koron już wiecie gdzie nas znaleść.

I have been approached at school by drama department to help with some outfits for a school play. The task was to create two crowns, one for upper school for King Henry VIII play and one for lower for Puck from ‘A midsummer Night’s Dream’ (Is there someone fascinated by Shakespeare? Hmmm…) Have to say love dressing up myself so I started to work on it with a pleasure. Will show results in a bit. 🙂
