Photography: Influences

Each year a small gallery in Draycott; the Beetroot Tree Gallery, assigns a topic for local schools, and artwork is produced and displayed. This year I was chosen to produce a piece along with the theme 'Influences'. As the category is quite broad, I decided to go out of my comfort zone, which is Textiles. GCSE's don't allow me much of a life, so I chose something quick: Photography. My original idea was to create pictures of the iconic Jackie O, but these didn't turn out too good, so I changed to pop singer Marina and the Diamonds. I think she's stunning, and makes great music too! Here are the originals :)

So, I grabbed a fan, a lamp, a plain wall and a friend! Here's what happened:

Let me know what you think, any improvements etc in the comment box :) XOXO
