Holograms.

I remember watching a kate moss for alexander mcqueen hologram on youtube quiet a while back yet i'm still completely taken away by it.

I've been thinking of creating a hologram for one of my summer projects, money is a slight issue but i want to produce something inspiring. 

Here's the original hologram film of Kate Moss:
(I prefer the music in the actual Mcqueen show as i find it more emotionally stimulating, engaging and atmospheric.)





Here's the video shown at the Mcqueen show:



Other people who have been using holograms in fashion include diesel for their s/s 08 runway show:

Fashion on my mind


I did a shoot tonight of a series of self portraits for one of my summer project ideas.
Currently editing and looking through the frames, thinking of re shooting some pictures of the ones i like when i get a tripod and sufficient lighting equipment.

Summer diary part 3












In this album

Sinead - I went to visit my best mate Sinead with a bottle of rose, we didn't finish the bottle by the end of the night which was a little strange seeing as we normally neck a few bottles and dance to David Bowie in her amazing red kitchen.

Millie - Sinead's dog, that i love. Might i add she has definitely got older since the last time I've seen her, I caught her out when she was scratching herself or generally being a dog.

Train - Heading to Nottingham to meet my mate Emma, we decided to go for a walk around in the city that offers some of the best vintage shops in the midlands.

Train - Still sat on the train heading to nottingham, I really liked how soft and nostalgic this image came out.

Lincoln sky - The clouds looked strange, the moon was out, a little banana shape that really stood out against the orange, purple and pink sky. (You can see a better image on the Summer diary part 1 entry) This was taken 15 minutes before my cab was on its way to pick me up and take me out to meet Shell and Ellie for a Thursday night out at SCY (The Cell) indie night. Weirdly enough i decided to wear white socks this night with rolled up skinny jeans, &what happened? MJ passed away that night, Also Glastonbury was running full force this week.

Emma will punch you - This was around 2pm, Emma and myself decided to go to a beer garden and purchase a jug of cocktails in the hope that it will cool us down from the skin burning devil heat that was testing my sanity. We caved in and hid under the shade, thank you to whoever gave me revolution coupons you saved our lives. I was, tipsy.

Shell - This was taken in KIND bar in lincoln, the Thursday night that MJ died, actually this was before we heard the news

Ellie, Shell and myself - The MJ moment, I was told by SMS that MJ had passed away, rumor had it at the time he was still in a coma but 10 seconds later we were told the king of pop had actually dived 6 feet under and popped his clogs. Captured in time, a moment we will never forget. "Where were you when MJ died?"

SCY - Ironically we went to SCY for a night of indie loving, MJ had died, my phone had ran out of battery and there was no one in the club but our local DJ Aron waving us in as obviously the poor man was playing music for, nobody. We paid and got in for 3 quid, lovely. 3 quid for a whole club, yes we were the only 3 in the whole club that night. Fantastic as it were we couldn't help but hate all the glastonbury festivalites at that particular moment in time seeing as it was our last night together before Shell and Ellie were moving back to Norwich. I got told i was ugly by a midget.

Ellie - Demonstrating the empty dance floor, we busted some groves and drank ourselves silly but the night was cut short and we were soon booted out.

Summer diary part 2











Sakura - Hannah M and her mate, This was a rather interesting night to say the least. After i finished modeling for a photo shoot in Lincoln i went to meet Hannah and some others, turns out that Tristan was there too. We went to The Well for a drink and talked about university and how everyone else was doing. We then went to a club called Sakura, Tristan had gone and so had the rest and the only people that were left with me were my two mates in the photograph.

Tommy - This was taken by my best mate Duane, We went up the hill for a drink at The Well after helping him finish packing his stuff in his old flat. Before our little drinking session we had Chinese at his place and watched TV on the Internet and drank rose, the t-shirt i got earlier on the day from a bit of skirt and i had planned to wear for the evening didn't fit. It was stupidly stuffy on that night.

Strangers - Duane with 2 random people who i still don't know. they ended up talking to us when Duane and myself decided to go to LLOYDS bar in Lincoln (everywhere was closed and we were desperate to keep the night rolling). The 4 of us walked around Lincoln at 3am when LLOYDS closed, we went looking for the next place offering an alcoholic drink, massive fail. This was taken outside a chav club, the lighting was interesting but wasn't captured well. She was a funny girl, i think she has a thing with getting her tits out to strangers.

Duane - Duane in Lincoln posing up the steep hill, pretty deadly.

Myself - Sat down in Lincoln up the steep hill.

Lahore - An indian take away that didn't last very long.

Duane's house - A random fish tank that some idiot decided to dump at Duane's house, I was greeted with dried out pieces of cat shit on the floor when taking this picture.

My name is Tristan and I am alive - Tristan was a little hesitant at posing at first but he was happy to look into my camera.
This was taken at the well with a flash that would end a persons life if they suffered from epilepcy.

Copper's house - After dancing like a twat in Sakura, Hannah decided to take me and my new buddy to some coppers house, i still can't remember how i got there which is pretty worrying. One of the guys who lived there was lovely enough to make me a small leaf salad and a cuppa which was definitely most appreciated as i could feel the vodka eating away at my organs. Hannah and the copper vanished, you can imagine what they were up to, my male mate left in a taxi shortly after and i was there staring at a huge music collection of CDs. After some guy trying to 'educate me' in music i looked at my phone and promptly dialed for a cab to take me home, I had 4 hours until i had to be up and shove my crap in my dads car to take to loughborough. I had the most interesting conversation with the taxi man, he nicely dropped me 1 minute away from my house. I waited till his car went round the corner and without a beat i emptied my guts all over my street and almost on my new shoes. I jumped into bed with a banging head ache later to be woken up by my mother banging on my door telling me that i had to help out with boxing things up for the move.

Summer diary part 1


















Myself - Outside scream chilling out and talking to one of my mates. The night was interesting. A little boring as hardly anyone was at the monday indie night. I went home early.

Dom and I - Still outside scream with me posing like an idiot. I think this was the night Dom, Sam and I went to the foundation art show to see this years students work. Which can i say overall was alright but nothing special.

Sam, Lee, Dom and Dave - The Well, I have fallen in love with this traditional english pub, The place is amazing, it reminded me of a Jack Wills store and they even make their own beer, cider and coke. At the back of the pub there's a huge well underground and you can see this through the glass flooring. Scary indeed.

Sam - Drinking in The Well with balloons from revolutions that i decided to nicely place on the table.

Dom and Sam - This photo was taken at the foundation show, free white wine was flowing and by the look on their faces, we promptly left the place to get ourselves a real drink at The Well. We ended up in Dogma afterwards and then Scream.

Winding road - This is a shot of the road from the back of the Usher art gallery in Lincoln, I love the contrast of the buildings with the soft grassy hills in the distance.

Night sky - I loved how odd the clouds looked on this night, the colours were amazing and the moon looked like it didn't belong there. There was something captivating about this scene before i took a camera to it but i tried to capture it the best i could.

Dinner time - Back home from Loughborough, the first sit down meal with my parents and sister.

Back of the garden - Turns out we had asbestos at the back of the garden.

Garden - We got someone to take away the old seat that i used to love laying on as a child.

Saved by the bell - The 80s bikes went in the skip, heart broken.

Sun worshiper - Myself trying to catch some rays for 5 minutes.

Food poisoning - My sister got food poisoning on the 2nd day i got back from loughborough, she spent most of the day resting on the sofa, munching on crisps, drinking water, watching tv and visiting the loo a lot.

Master chef - Dad cooking in our old little kitchen, this image brings back so many memories of being taught how to cook at a young age by my dad and mum.

Time - The neighbors purchased the most amazing old looking clock and nailed it to the side of their garage in the garden.

Clouds - A bright sunny day in Lincoln, a moment that will always remind me how bloody stuffy the whole week was.
