Gardens and snails

We've started our semester on moving image and our first assignment was to create a 1 minute edit after shooting 4 film clips. I've never done anything like this, so let me know what you think!

Smaller

I've been taught how to photograph the minute this year. Looking at the smallest creatures and seeing the patterns of life, definitely gives a new perspective;

Interesting finds...

So this week I've been researching for my essay entitled "The National Geographic Society and its Impact on Early Conservation" and here are some of the nuggets that I dug up along the way...


A bookshelf made from National Geographics










A stylish National Geographic cardigan for a measly £110



















The first ever photograph of a beaver












The man who took the first photograph of a beaver











A National Geographic air freshener, so your room can smell like Alaska







A National Geographic article saying air fresheners are bad for the environment, and you should open your window instead....
