My final studio project of my first year at the Massey University College of Creative Arts was a photography assignment which was uber cool because I’ve always wanted to branch more into artistic photography but I’ve never really gotten the chance.
The basis for my project was to portray the essence of the Wellington City nightlife culture through movement, motion, expression, action, and interaction (or lack of), as an extension of my sensory experiences and memories and in order to further assimilate myself with my new home in a new city.
The sequence of 14 pictures are grouped in pairs that both mimic and contrast in action and/or emotion, and vary from clear reflections to abstract shots. This serves to build on, or enhance the atmosphere present in each unique moment.
All images were shot with a Canon 60D, and a 50mm f1.8 prime lens
Will try to get the rest of the images up in the near future, and (when I get it back) I may upload some pic of my workbook so you guys can have a look at the kind of process we have to go through just for a 6 week course..
What even is life? Drowning in research, photography project proposals, work, readings, and tests already and its only week two #dying

Not sure where the tattoos came from. But oh well…
Slow progress. But the best remedy for such a wet and windy evening.
Should be studying but can’t help myself from drawing instead ✌
So happy to finally have this one finished!!!
Must have started it over 6 or 7 months ago, and just gradually chipped away at it every so often, sometimes going for over a month without even touching it.
