College (#7/365)

Before college, my only real experience with cameras was taking the occasional snap with my mother’s camera on holiday.

I had no real ‘urge’ to do photography — I just had a couple of spare years before university, and wanted to do something artistic. I would liked to have done something more ‘fine art’, but I lacked basic drawing and painting skills. Photography, on the other hand, just requires two hands and an ‘eye’ for design.

Anyway, for one of my projects, I did a series of dark, misty and wet photos. The project contained some of my favourite photos (even including my work since then), but sadly the project got “lost in the system”. I got an A, but the portfolio never came back from the examiners.

This is a recreation of one of the photos in the project.
