Hello guys! A team from  picbod 2014 have gathered together and produced a #picbod 2014 newspaper as a follow-up to the course and the exhibition. It's a 32 pages paper containing all the work that has been produced throughout the module. Only 100 copies are being printed. Early bird copies will be £3.50 + postage - if ordered before Monday (this is a price that covers the costs of printing). After that the newspaper will be £4.50 per copy. Make sure you get a copy before they are over - we sold 50 copies already! 

If you are interested please contact me at siyana.kasabova@gmail.com

I must admit, that what I 've seen so far from you lot is impressive (I couldn't resist not watching your videos and blogs)
Seriously looking forward tomorrow's opening night.
Enjoy every minute leading up to the exhibition, because as you realised by now, it's the experience that matters.
#Picbod2014 certainly rules!
I shall see you all tomorrow along with the #IMG19 team.

goodnight and good luck... (and watch this film, it's great!)

Here is my digital exhibition. I called the project 'Unknown' as that is exactly what I hate about the dark. It surrounds me and traps me, which is what I have tried to show in this video, with audio and the use of my images.

Hi, Everyone. 
I need your feedback :) as I'm not sure if I'm going in the right direction. 
Could you please tell me about what you think is the message of this picture and what do you think about repetitive pose of myself in series of images? Thanks

Just a few of the images I took tonight for the collection. These too focusing on the part of my far of the dark, that some is there watching me.
The first is like who's out there in my imagination .. And the second is me waking up to check no ones there

About this community

#picbod (Picturing the body) is a BA (Hons) Photography second year undergraduate class run by Matt Johnston at Coventry University The ten weeks are structured so as to address complex aesthetic, creative and technical issues along with the visual messages, associated with the photographic encounter with the body. We do this through simple practical and thematic tasks, the cumulative resolution of which, become their final lens based submissions. An essential part of this will be non-paying attendees (you) joining in with us, submitting your work, asking questions and contributing answers. For our attending degree students the class plays a crucial role in both their thematic and practical development. It’s purpose then is to inspire, challenge and maybe even provoke them into producing a number of considered and cogent (outward facing) photographic responses.
 
hello. #Picbod  2014 here. Just wondering if +Huw Williams, if you could give a brief quote about your "nude and naked" task and +Simon Regis, if you could do the same with the "Tribe" task please. This is for the #Picbod  Newspaper which we will be printing tomorrow. Thankyou

This task was made easier for me as I was visiting my partner over the weekend the task was due. But from a creative perspective this was a challenge in seeking to convey intimacy without necessarily having to show gratuitous amounts of flesh. To some extent, it can be said that I failed in that task...

However, in juxtaposing the pictures of the body with that of his hands in the last photo, I was seeking to demonstrate different perspectives of intimacy - from a more obvious torso shot to a less obvious representation of working hands.... My interpretation of intimacy in this context (working hands) relates to the amount of time we both spend using modern technology to communicate with each other and intimate nature of that communication.

I hope the opening night went well. The digital exhibitions looked fantastic and I know I've missed the deadline but hopefully I'll post mine up soon. Unfortunately I cannot make the exhibition this weekend!!!

I am still editing images down and have one to show, will post others tomorrow. :)

I have chosen to explore self-portraiture in the following project as this is how I began my photographic journey about six years ago. Educating myself about photography, make up and post production, I was able to alter my appearance and play a different role. There is a specific way that I feel inside which I fail to express in my daily life due to absurd fears and concerns. Whereas photography provides the opportunity to reveal the true essence of self, be the kind I wish to exist yet so afraid to expose.

Those who see me in uni know that when In uni i don't look like that :D I look tired :D

Not sure about the red of it!

I like the red, it creates some strange tension. I guess part of it must be the hands reaching to grab? the subject. It looks as if a still from ones dream. What I would re-consider is the format. Perhaps a landscape, could add appropriate context of this dream. If it's actually a dream I would also suggest experimenting with soft focus/blur effects.

Here is one of the images I may use for my exhibition. Please keep in mind I haven't edit it properly just quick black and white conversion, although I like it as it is ;)
