An Introduction to Me

Hello! My name is Lucy and I am currently studying my Photography degree at the University of Westminster.
At the moment I am most interested in portrait photography and a couple of photographers I admire are Richard Avedon and Andy Gotts, both who have explored portraiture in their own way; although saying this I have a very open mind when it comes to photography and look forward to experimenting with different techniques.
My favourite medium in analogue as I love how it really makes you stop and think about what you’re taking pictures of and also what settings you are using. I think it is way too easy now to be able to put your digital camera on automatic and point and shoot endlessly without even giving it a second thought. It is wonderful in some ways, but I really think creatively you need to begin using an SLR to be able to appreciate DSLR’s fully.

I am looking forward to seeing what the future holds, I mostly want to make sure that whatever I end up doing, it has a positive impact on the world.
