Over the coming months this site will grow to showcase my design work and photography.
I’ve been attempting to take photographs for the past 3-4 years with mixed successes.
I’m a huge believer that the best camera is the one that you have with you, upon this site you will see a mix of DSLR (Nikon D3100) and smartphone (currently a Nexus 5) photography. Some good. Some bad. Some indifferent.
Over the years I have also played with design, designing invitations, logos, business cards and websites for friends, family and clients far and wide, so will be sharing my successes and fails in this area as well.
As a part of the 52 week challenge we are also doing a monthly competition challenge. My photography this year is going to get a battering.
Week #3 and the subject is Triptych, to tell a story in 3 images.
Having never created one it took me a while to think of a creative, and achievable image. My first idea was a drivers view comprising of three shots from inside the car, however that was where my idea ended.
I am not a fan of early morning wake up calls, however my 1 year old son Finley seems to think 04:00 am is a fantastic time to play….I can assure you it isn’t.
So quick as a Flash Week 2 of the photography challenge is upon me, the subject is Sparkle/Shine. These challenges really make the imagination work removing the dust particles from the right side of the brain.
I am not sure that I have been as successful this week with meeting the subject although I enjoyed the setting up of the shot.
My original inspiration came from the fotopraxis blog, I was having struggles with the lighting aspects to capture a decent shot.
As an avid visitor of many blogs and websites to learn about all things photography, I constantly come across the 365 or 52 week photography challenge, last week I was added to a group on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/52weekphotochallenges) so I guess I am taking part.
Each week the host will choose a subject for the group members to capture.
As the autumn draws its last breath and begins its transition to winter, the tree begins to glow an amazing highly saturated collection of colours. It starts with a green slowly transitioning to yellow and orange before the red leaves start to shine. I believe the tree to be a Japanese Maple Osakazuki.
Elsewhere in my garden the Heather is again starting to flower its delicate, pretty purple flowers.
