A Week Review #3

Last week started with a fascinating look round the “Nanoscale and Microscale Research Centre”, which culminated in using the scanning, and transmission, electron microscopes, something I’ve always wanted to do!  I really wanted to share the fly’s eye I imaged on the SEM, but unfortunately we had a little trouble getting the images off the program; they will be uploaded to my Twitter (@mgb_visuals) as soon as I get them.

The business module involves creating a business plan for the magazine we’re creating, and Steve got us started on this on Tuesday, giving an interesting insight into the world of marketing and making a career out of photography!

I mentioned in the last post about Chris Upton coming into talk to us on Wednesday, but if you have a moment, check out his images of Thoresby Colliery before it closed; they give a often unseen view into the mining industry in the 21st century.

The week ended with myself and Letty (@lifeoflet) filming what inspires us as part of a duo of videos we’re making for the undergraduates.  We tried to keep it unscripted to give our answers as genuine a feel as possible, and although we ended up laughing more than talking, it was interesting to really take time to think where I find inspiration from.

We’re going to the Peak District on Friday so I’ll make sure I share a post about that later in the week, but in the mean time, take it easy!
