On Thursday 23rd I went to Birmingham International to stay in both the station and the airport. I spent half day there shooting because I want to expand my project theme to travelling in Birmingham in general rather than photographing only in Birmingham New Street.
I am pretty satisfied about some of the pictures I got but I would like to go there more often and maybe to visit some other nation in the city.
On Wednesday 8th I went to Birmingham to keep photographing in the station and I had the opportunity to try shooting with the Hasselblad for the first time.
I am pretty satisfied with the result but some of the pictures were out of focus, so I need to improve in that sense.
Unfortunately after a couple of hours I was asked to stop photographing because I need an authorisation to do it in the station even if it is a public place, for security reason.
I will probably go back there next week, but I am thinking about expanding the theme of my project to travelling in general, so I will visit also Birmingham airport and other stations beside Birmingham New Street.
On Monday 20th we had a practical lesson and we went shooting street photography here in Cheltenham. It was a bit hard for me to create something strictly related to my project because in Birmingham I will be shooting inside the station, but I tried to create something interesting about other subjects.
The town centre was busy and I found some people that caught my attention, I really happy about how some pictures came out, but I think I should have concentrate more on people, while I got “distracted” by some amazing architectures in the periphery, where it was quieter, and by the flowers that are blossoming in this period in Cheltenham parks.
