About me

I am a student with the Open College of the Arts, studying a BA (Hons) degree in Photography – Liz515728.  Welcome to my blog for Context and Narrative.

To view my previous Blog for Expressing Your Vision please follow this link.

I bought my DSLR camera in August 2015 and haven’t put it down since.  It has become a serious hobby which I enjoy more and more each day.  It stretches me and I cannot see a day when I will not learn something about my camera, the world around me or indeed myself as a result of taking photographs.

This is the second year of my degree journey and am happy to have you along for the ride and please feel free to comment and get involved.  If you see/read something on my blog that you like then tell me and tell me why.  Equally if you see/read something that jars, tell me that too and why it jars.

Discussion, debate and sharing ideas is a route to new creative pathways so it is encouraged.
