Rider Portrait shots

4 portraits. 4 riders. I like these and yet I don't like it. My background interferes with the subject a bit. I should have noticed the mountain coming out of their heads. it kind of messes up the image. but oh well. next time i'll do better. aweh.

Monochromatic





I am a failure

okay okay I have not continued with that 365 project. I was going strong and then I lost one photo due to me not organizing my photos. i feel shit about it. I'm not happy about me not updating but i am the only one to blame. i will not make a statement like "i am going to update my blog daily" cause i never do. but aweh. i've got quite a few photos that i want to share so just keep an eye out.

365

Okay. I have decided to commit myself to something pretty major. I am not sure if I'll be able to stay committed but if it happens that start to drift from the path I'm going to take, it only means that I am not entirely fit to be a photographer. I'll then have to start over and force myself to finish what I have started. Shit now that I think about it, this might be a pretty massive thing. Okay the thing I am committing myself to is the 365 photography project. What this means is that I am going to force myself into taking 1 photo per day for the next 365 days. if I miss one photo then the project will be ruined and I've got to start over or not do it. I am however going to try and update daily if possible with each photo.  But here are the first three photos.

Sorry about this delayed post

I am truly sorry about this delayed post. I've been drowned by work from the Academy the past few weeks but now that I've got time off I'll try to update more frequently. I have got one image I want to share with all of you. This was a collaboration between me and two other good friends/upcoming brilliant photographers. It's just a fun image. Our brief was to shoot startrails while including lightpainting. I think we have succeeded in what has been asked.  Lasche with her colourful lighting up front. Andreas with his solid concepts and techniques engulfed within that ball of flame and I would be the ape behind the camera pressing a button.

Long Overdue

This post is long overdue. I am really sorry about that but the Academy's been quite hectic lately. Work is piling up and I need to get a move on. But the past weekend was the best one of my life. Was just perfect in every possible way. Went to the Karoo with my class for the weekend. Best people ever. Best times ever. Best career ever. Basically all we had to do was chill and take photo's during the day. Listen to music. Hang out with insane friends and at night..we had to go out into the desert and get Startrail photographs and just sit back or lie on your back. listen to music and gaze at the universe till sunrise the following day and then repeat the routine. Honestly best time of my life. Here are a few film shots of the potjie we made and a nice chill evening at Bohemia. please enjoy and soon I'll be uploading BW film shots and some of the startrail photographs I took during the weekend.
