Subject 3: Photographs

Whilst I’m still trying to learn how to use the new video software, I’ve begun taking photographs in response to some of the photography I’ve been inspired by (Especially David Lynch’s ‘Smoke and Nudes’). All the work was shot in the dark, with a flash light, using my phone to keep the low-grade grainy texture I like.


Subject 3: Editing Software

As my trial of Adobe Premiere Pro sadly ran out, I’m trying out new editing software:

Adobe Premiere Pro



  • Experience with the software. I have been using it since college and I’m able to navigate it easily
  • Very user friendly. Everything is easy to access with shortcuts
  • Has a lot of functions. Everything I could need to do, it can do


  • Out of my price range. It’s £13 a month or over £100 a year, both of which I’d be unable to afford even with the discount
  • Not completely reliable, has a bad habit of not responding

Windows Movie Maker



  • Incredibly simple to use
  • Easy to access clips and edit very quickly
  • Free to use


  • Doesn’t have as many options, making it more difficult to fully edit my work


maxresdefault (1)


  • Free to use
  • Good for editing colour, helpful with my contrast work
  • Widely available free options to add to the software
  • Lots of tutorials online to help with navigation


  • Little to no experience with the software
  • Have to find and download extra plug-ins

DaVinci Resolve



  • Free to use
  • Lots of tips online on how to use
  • Easy editing interface
  • Very similar to Adobe Premiere Pro – which I’m used to
  • Colour-match tool for matching shots


  • No experience with the software
  • May not be as effective for short clips

My current idea is to try and use DaVinci Resolve considering how similar it is to the software I have already been using in the past. However, if it is unable to pick up the shorter clips, I will stitch them together in Lightworks then import them into DaVinci for editing, then export them to cut them. It seems like a long way to do things, but if it means saving close to £150 for a software that isn’t entirely reliable, it’s worth it.
