One of the things I don't do nearly enough of is night photography, or low light photography in general. Mostly because it can be cumbersome to schlepp a tripod around, setting it up and waiting for the long exposures to finish...but when it is done right it looks pretty darn good!Read More
Once again it's time to do a monthly wrap-up on my yearlong photo project. This was the tenth month in a row of taking, editing and posting an image every day via Instagram. This month also meant I passed the completely arbitrary, but still somewhat impressive, 300th image of the year. As before I've picked 5 images plus a "cover" to write a bit more about them.Read More
One of the things I enjoy about photography and social media is the interaction, online as well as in real life...because let's face it - tapping away on your keyboard is interaction to a certain extent, but to have face to face conversations with other photographers is a lot more fun!
That is why I try to take part in as many photowalks as I can with the Facebook group I'm a member of, to talk to and interact with other photographers. To be perfectly honest, to take the "best ever" photos during these events is never my goal, because I think you'll have to have a bit more of a solitary time to get your best work done, to be "alone" with your camera.Read More
As the temperature slowly increases and the days grow longer it gets nicer and nicer to be out and about in the "wild", especially when you don't have to wear all the winter gear! This week's blog post has pictures from Falsterbo in the far southwestern corner of the province, where I along with a few others were enjoying the sunshine, warm(ish) weather and relatively calm windsRead More
A few days ago I listened to an episode of one of my favorite podcasts, The Candid Frame, hosted by Ibarionex Perello where he had the photographer Mick Victor as a guest. They talked about his project of photographing graffiti, tags and other decorations and markings on walls close enough to make them more abstracts, and therefore more "arty". I thought that sounded so utterly removed from the street photography that I often do that I just had to give it a go!Read More
