Anyone Can Be A Photographer

I was inspired to do a photography project called Anyone Can Be A Photographer created by one of my favourite music photographers Adam Elmakias. If you want to see any of his work, here are his links below.

The “Anyone Can Be A Photographer” project is where you take a collection of photos of what you’re doing over 7 days. The idea is to illustrate your day with images (a bit like a visual diary). They do not necessarily have to be fantastic photos.  Some days you just spend at your desk and don’t move. This challenges you to find something interesting in how the light may be falling on your desk, or to fiddle with some photographic elements and create an interesting shot from nothing, or find something beautiful in the view from your office window if you are lucky enough to have one! The idea is for you to catch the photography bug and want to go out and take MORE photos. At the end of your day choose 3 of your favourites from the day and post them.

Day 1 – Sunday 26th October 2014: Trip to Dubai

This is a necklace I wore which is a replica of Hermione Granger’s time turner necklace in the Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban book and movie. The necklace also has a quote that says “I mark the hours every one nor have I yet outrun the sun. My use and value unto you are ganged by what you have to do.”

While driving to Dubai for my piano lesson, I decided to listen to the radio and listen to some music

On the way back from Dubai we would usually drive past a construction scarecrow. The scarecrow is there to warn us about roadworks and whatnot.

Day 2 – Monday 27th October 2014: Teaching and practicing

I had to do a lesson plan for my piano student today and had to teach her a few scales and a few pieces.

I did a bit of work today on the computer.It was one of those days where I didn’t move from my desk because I was editing photos, videos and finally finished off with sending a few emails.

My beautiful piano Joanna. I have to practice the piano 3 hours a day, 6 days a week. It can be tough at times, but I love it.

Day 3 – Tuesday 28th October 2014: Practicing and pets.

This is Pepper my Jack Russell. As you can see, he is a bit chubby, sometimes we call him a pickle barrel.

Here’s another photo of my piano Joanna.The red cloth is for covering the keys and protecting them, and I also did another 3 hours of practicing today.

This is one of the pieces I was practicing. The piece is called The Lark by Glinka. Here’s the link to the piece if you want to have a listen. Link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cxlf-ZmE8JI

These are some notes that I have to read to help me practice the piano.

With certain pieces I’m playing, I have to colour code different voices, sequences and patterns.

Here’s some of my favourite stationary that I love using.

Not a lot of people know this about me, but I love doing magic tricks.

One of my absolute favourite games to play on my Nintendo 3DS, Animal Crossing New Leaf!

In my spare time I love to read. This is the current book I’m reading called Pretties by Scott Westerfield. It’s a very futuristic book which I quite enjoy.

Day 6 – Friday 31st October 2014: Halloween.

These are purple Norwegian potatoes that we found at the supermarket and decided to try them. They are richer, nuttier and they remind me of chestnuts.

One of my best friends was the corpse bride from the animated film The Corpse Bride. Thought this was a cool shot with the lighting.

Day 7 – Saturday 1st November 2014: Rain.

It decided to randomly rain today, so I went outside and took some shots of the plants with raindrops on them. I love the colours on this leaf because it reminds me of Autumn.
