MOORLAND, STANAGE EDGE, PEAK DISTRICT, FIRES, NATURE
It seems the hot weather this summer is not only mitigating my thematic drives – gloomy pessimistic skies – and my need for cloud cover to create soft, diffuse lighting; but also, it is proving to be a destructive one for some of my proposed locations in the Peak District. Many of the valleys and national parks are in flames due to the sustained heat, which not only has caused very restricted access but also an obvious health and safety risk.
I am monitoring the situation on a regular basis to ascertain when I will be able to access the hope valley area, where Stanage Edge is situated. It also seems that whilst fires may not be active at them moment, there are restrictions on public access to mitigate any further ignition from litter, dropped sparks, etc.

This video shows just one large scale fire that has been affecting not only the Peak District National park, but also National PArks across the country this summer. I will continue to monitor the advice and guidance from the Fire Operations Group and the PEak District NAtional parks website and Facebook page, to ascertain when I will be able to shoot background footage for my project.
Here are some recent posts that I have written as part of the Digital Media Practice 3 project – ‘FUSE’
September 7th, 2018 Chiefly, once the lighting is set up correctly using the Linear EXR data as an environment map, and by setting the colour management to 'Filmic' - the colour management system written and developed by Troy Sobotka - much of the heavy lifting is...
August 30th, 2018 Continuing on from my modelling process, I moved on to the texture painting process in Substance Painter. I not only chose this programme for its procedural, non-destructive, scalable workflow, but also so that I could try a separate Normal/Height...
August 24th, 2018 Following my successful shoot in The Peak District, I began the modelling process. Chiefly, I used my research from previous projects in The Arcane Welder project to combine both mesh-based and Boolean-based deformation with procedural kit bashing...
