From my first shoot which was taken in Canterbury town, I wanted to focus more on the university itself. I went to capture this shoot at 4pm, where it was much quieter and I could get a real sense of the space and surroundings without the hectic environment I am use to from all the students. As soon as you walk into UCA Canterbury you are greeted with a big lawn area, with a huge tree. This is iconic and a feature that makes the campus what it is, original. Therefore to focus on what I think stands out about this university, I wanted to capture images of the lawn, and what surrounds it. I captured images inspired by Liz Orton, to produce into a collage style.

After capturing a variety of shots from the lawn, I moved inside to the Architecture rooms, and began capturing images in the same way. Segments of the room, to develop into a college. From moving outside to inside, I was able to feel the changes of space and how much Architecture is produced inside and outside the university.

Now I had started developing the images on photoshop, I was able to see the outcomes I was able to create with a planet technique on photoshop. This was displaying a transition of ‘inside’ and ‘outside’ through Architecture, and how we are not always aware of this.

Although this technique is simple, it is effective. Especially with image 5, how the magnificent tree is blended into the sculptured building as if its incorporated as one. It is this effect which stands out to me and is what is highlighted the most in this set of images, the combination of the architecture, lawn and tree.
