The day 7 post should have been about ‘my father’, however having a picture of my dad is almost impossible as he is usually behind the lens. This is definitely where I got my love for photography from. All my life I remember my dad taking photos at any given opportunity and not just those ‘family’ snaps you grow to regret. Some of them are still really great and stay up on our walls for years without being replaced.
So, that being said I thought about how I could best show my dad in a photo without it actually being a photo of him. That being said, I was thinking about showing how he has influenced me in my life but that is so hard to show in just ONE photo as every photo I have taken has been influenced but him. Everything from my photography work when I studied it for two years, to the cheeky little snaps on my phone (that he is always moaning about me not using my actual camera, sorry dad!).
So I thought I would share one of my first photos from when I started my first year at college with you. I fell in love with the darkroom and the process of bringing your photography to life, just the way that he brought my passion to life.
All the best
