” Many speak of opportunities ” when one door opens another one closes” but rarely about the hallway the transition the inbetween where you are and where you are headed the hallway doesn’t have to be a scary Dark endless confusion it can be a space of massive transformation memories and peace. ”
Last month I did an online course called visionary portfolio with hopes of learning how to put a portfolio together. During the course I have been looking through my archives in search of themes. I mainly share objective images responding to prompts and briefs I find it therapeutic.
A theme that I realised which occurs in my photography is hallways all these photos were taken when significant events happened in my life which I wasn’t aware until going through my photos.
I want to extend on this project with more Hallway and Corridor photos which I’ll share gradually.
Im currently doing a portfolio course and one of the assignments is to set the tone for a portfolio.
I took these photos recently in hopes to have a unified series of photos of Beachboxes.
I had spotted these Beachboxes over the months and had been waiting for an overcast flat Sky to unify them togeather. Although the last 2photos have a more colourful colour pallette I think the green grass ties them altogether.
I was considering using this for inspired as I love land art and am inspired by so many artist particularly Ana Mendieta .
I specifically asked the gardener to not mow this section of clover as I wanted to so some creating . It didn’t turned out how i had envisioned so did some more macro.
This Week on Instagram’s @community_whp account, the theme was “inspired”. As i am centering my submissions around puddles. While researching I came across a photo by Kyle Thompson which inspired this photo.
These are the photos i took to make the image. As usual I was limited with light and although it was low tide the tide was further up than usual and i had to search for suitable rock pools. none were the right depth or size so i decided that i would composite them in.
I initially had the idea of using the reflection though thought it may not have communicated the way I intended. So I put back in the boat.
I havedone alot of compositing before though only used an app on my ipad, for this photo I used photoshop.Its not perfect though i am pleased with what i am learnt and will use it in future to composite images.
Have a Great Day.
Day 15 of 30 day photography Challenge.
Yesterdays post inspired me to make a series of photos per day.
Often I take many photos only to pick my best one then discard the rest. Today i challenged myself to take at least 10 different photos of Cameron’s Bight Jetty it forced me to seek new perspectives. Sure they’re not all great photos and i had a limited amount of time to take them though I enjoyed the totally new perspectives I saw .
So for the next 10 days I will be sharing 10 photos a day. I find it a little daunting as time is limiting and subjects maybe boring though i find it a good way for me to broaden my photography and seek new perspectives.
Day 13 of 30 Day Photography Challenge.
Today I went up to Arthurs Seat looking for Mushrooms to photograph with my new macro extension Tubes attached to the lensbaby. There wasn’t a great deal though i did find a little patch of these mushys.
They were tiny. i’ll share more for Macro Monday.
All the best
Day 12 of 30 day Photography Challenge
Today I received macro extension tubes in the mail. I was so excited to try them out. I attached my lensbaby lens to them and experimented and was truly amazed at the results. I’ve never been one for closeup photography though this has really opened a whole new world. The detail in objects is truly amazing and i think a post solely devoted to this new equipment and photos is needed.
When i got home it was raining so a wander in the garden in between rain showers. I could probably count on my hands the amount of time i’ve photographed flowers. I find them beautiful they just don’t challenge me creatively, unless you try and capture them through a rain drop which I attempted though failed. This flower however fascinated me not sure what it is. Lots of bokeh and a tiny bit of focus to satisfy my creativity.
