Rolling Out The Classics

Carrying on with what looks like a month of music, let's see the songs and albums I've grown up with!

First up is The Hoosiers, The Trick To Life album. I had forgotten about it completely but 'Goodbye Mr A' and 'Worried about Ray' bring back so many happy memories of my childhood.

Mcfly, they'll forever be in my heart. Whether it was at my first concert in 2008 or this singing album at the top of my lungs with my friends at the primary school discos. Great songs boys and it's good to see Mcbusted doing well. Wishing you all the best from a long time fan. ‘Please, Please' and 'Obviously' are my two favourites but I've had some great times performing dance routines to 'Don't Stop Me Now'.

What are your favourite classic songs?

Photography Inspiration: Jamie Shovlin

After pages and pages of annotations, with hundreds of photographs and detailed edits; it's safe to say my photography exam has spiraled out of control, unaware of my power I have created a shocking tale of truth and mysterious fictions.

With this monster of a piece my teacher steered me in the direction Jamie Shovlin to clean up the beautiful mess I made.

The above photo is an example of his work, entitled, 'Naomi V Jelish'. A fictional character of Jamie's imagination, her life story told as if it were true.

"Naomi V Jelish's life story is one of pathos and tragedy. 

Her strange tale is explained to visitors on labels, in newspaper cuttings, photographs, school reports and through personal mementoes. 

Naomi showed great aptitude for art in the face of complete indifference from her family and school. But in 1991, a few months after her father drowned, Naomi, then 13, her mother, and her four siblings mysteriously walked out of the family home in Gravesend, Kent, and despite extensive police inquiries, none of them has been seen or heard of again. A cutting from the Kent Messenger discloses that in September 1990 Naomi won "the prestigious North Kent Student Art Prize". 

In August the following year the paper reported that police were concerned because the family had vanished. Neighbours said the family seemed "cursed". David Jelish, the head of the family and a road mender with Kent county council, had drowned while saving one of the children, another child had recently survived electrocution and Vanessa, the children’s mother, was suffering from a stress-related illness following the death of her youngest son in 1989. 

A book accompanying the display at the Saatchi Gallery goes on to say that Naomi’s precocious drawings were recovered from the abandoned house some time later by the late John Ivesmail, a science teacher at Naomi’s school who had befriended the family. Though beguiled by her sketches, he waited until 1999 to show them in a small exhibition in Gravesend. 

Soon after, he passed Naomi’s pictures to a friend, a young artist called Jamie Shovlin, who curated an exhibition of the drawings, along with all Jelish memorabilia recovered from their house and the newspaper cuttings. 

The story of Naomi is moving, but it is a hoax, the products of the imagination of Shovlin, 25, from Leicester, a graduate of the Royal College of Art, who spent three years creating the fantasy. 
He produced the drawings, the cuttings, the school reports et al in order, as he explained, "to test the boundaries of ambiguity". 

Naomi V Jelish and John Ivesmail are anagrams of Jamie Shovlin.

Such great ideas from imaginary women, might give it a go.

The Art of a Moving Photograph

  1. the art of photography and camerawork in film-making.
    "home movie footage with superb cinematography"

An example of cinematography are the decisions made about lighting, camera filters and lenses when shooting a movie scene.

Cinematography (from Greekκίνημαkinema "movements" and γράφεινgraphein "to record") is the science or art of motion picture photography by recording light or other electromagnetic radiation, either electronically by means of an image sensor, or chemically by means of a light-sensitive material such as film stock.[1]
Typically, a lens is used to repeatedly focus the light reflected or emitted from objects into real images on the light-sensitive surface inside a camera during a timed exposure creating multiple images. With an electronic image sensor, this produces an electrical charge at each pixel, which is electronically processed and stored in a video file for subsequent display or processing. The result with photographic emulsion is series of invisible latent images on the film stock, which are later chemically "developed" into a visible image. The images on the film stock are played back at a rapid speed and projected on a screen creating the illusion of a movie.
Cinematography is employed in many fields of science and business as well as its more direct uses for recreational purposes and mass communication.
