  10. Pictures of Reference.

    05 Nov 2018

    This Module I thought I would record my work through contact sheets.  Managing a lot of ideas and learning that experimentation is great but focusing on work thats good and discarding whats not essential is equally as important.  So with 35 shoots this Module, minus the edits and re-shoots.

  14. Show and Tell

    18 Oct 2018
