On the 29th of November Kevin Meredith (also known as LomoKev) came into
our uni to give a talk about his career and all about lomography. I'm
really interested in photography and lomography, so I was really excited
He talked us through how he started off by doing a course in university
in Graphic Design, but then discovered his love for photography after
receiving a lomography camera and entering lomography competitions.
After the lecture, a few people from my course had a photography
workshop with him. He gave us a presentation on what makes a good photo
and then handed out sheets telling us what we were going to do. The
sheet listed words and items that we had to interpret in our own ways
and take photos of and we had to take all these photos in a certain
amount of time (I think it was around 45 minutes). The words on the
sheet included things like 'tattoo', 'person at work', 'photo of a
stranger and find out their story', 'youth', 'perspective', etc. We had
to take the photos in Cardiff Market, which is a really interesting
place to take photos, I've done a few projects in there before.
