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 to go.
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.
