Research Photography Competition – Vote Now

‘Can you tell the story of your research in a single image?’ That’s the challenge we set BU’s academics and postgraduates earlier this year, and the overwhelming response saw researchers from all across the university downing tools to take up their cameras and think of unusual ways to illustrate their research. The resulting images demonstrate not just the creativity of our academics and postgraduates, but also the fascinating range of research taking place at BU.

Researchers from all across the university working in areas as diverse as dementia, archaeology, kayaking and 3D printing submitted images to the competition, and now we want your help to decide which pictures should form a photography exhibition on Talbot campus later this year.

To vote for your favourite images, visit our research website or Facebook page and vote for as many images as you like. Perhaps a particular research subject strikes a chord with you, or you find a certain image especially evocative – whatever your reasons for having a favourite, the content of the exhibition is up to you to decide!

Make sure you vote to ensure that your favourite image is part of the exhibition on Talbot campus later this year. The deadline for voting is Friday 27 March. Details of the exhibition will follow once voting is complete.

BU Masters student appears in RPS Journal

Bournemouth University postgraduate student Kiratsinh Jadeja, recently appeared in the Royal Photographic Society Journal discussing his passion for 2D compositing.

Jadeja recently enrolled on the MA Digital Effects course at BU after discovering his interest in photography whilst travelling in India.

“I love blending my photography and Photoshop skills to produce a final result that is not only different and better, but also visually pleasing”.

“Bournemouth’s Digital Effects course is recognised by premier VFX studios like Double Negative and MPC. My interest lies in 2D compositing, which means blending frames shot in camera with computer generated frames, to come up with something totally different.”

Jadeja is building up an impressive portfolio having recently been signed as House Photographer for Getty Images and contributing photographer for Image Source. He also works with clients such as Microsoft Washington, Pearson Education UK and Expedia.

When asked about his time at the Bournemouth University, Jadeja said “I am proud to be a student here and I highly recommend it”.
