    So a little backstory about this shot. We were at the zoo and I really wanted to test my camera out and see if I had any potential to be a photographer, and this was one of the shots of the day. When I showed it to my father, who knows a little bit more about photography, he said you can't even see the frog but I told him thats kind of what I liked about this shot. I've always liked to capture or look at images that kind of show the mysteriousness of nature.

    Stuck at Home?  Use the Time to Capture Those Kids!

    Stuck at Home? Use the Time to Capture Those Kids!

    To me, there are few things in the world more fun that attempting to capture a child’s true essence with a camera- that fleeting moment that can never (especially with kids) be planned. The look that says it all, the glimpse of genuine curiosity or glee, even the tears and the tantrums, will remind us forever of the person they were and have become. And now that we have a LOT of time at home with them, take advantage!... While shooting kids is always a bit of a game of luck, here are a few tips to make it easier, whether you are a budding pro or a parent with a camera.

    Power of Photography

    Power of Photography

    “No photograph ever changed anything all by itself, for photographs are highly dependent creatures and their influence is entirely contingent on words, circumstances, distribution, and belief systems “ is quoted from ‘under the influence of photography’ by Goldberg. This quote explains a lot about why the photograph ‘Dali Atomicus’ by Phillippe Halsman has a great cultural significance. It has such an importance culturally because it not only explains a lot about physics, looking inside the idea of suspension, but it also has a cultural impact because of the context behind the image and its important message. The photograph’s message seems to be that if you work hard, the product you end up with will be worth it. This image affects me personally because of the message it portrays in such a joyful way.

    Memories of Madrid

    Memories of Madrid

    Exploring new territory has always been something of a challenge for me. I yearn to see the World and all of the beautiful places within it, but it is also an overwhelming prospect. So whenever I do venture beyond the UK, it is safe to say I am terrified.

    Through My Eyes

    Through My Eyes

    I started with street photography the moment I picked up the camera, actually I borrowed the camera from my friend Maja. It was some kind of Sony DSLR I remember, did the job. I was so excited, and the first thing that I shot was the people on the street. That was it.

    When life feels bleak...

    When life feels bleak...

    I never thought I’d see the day where life seemed bleak for the entire planet. I’ve been oscillating between moments of fear and panic, tears streaming down my cheeks, to joy and gut-splitting laughter when video chatting with family and friends.

    Life, reframed.

    Life, reframed.

    The reality that on average is captured by a human eye consists on an amplitude of 180 degrees, while only a designed portion is constructed by a clear image. An image to the naked eye contains two parts: a sharp focus and blurred edges.

    Oregon Tide Pool

    Oregon Tide Pool

    In the summer of 2018, my wife and I drove down the spectacular Oregon coast in our 2001 VW Vanagon. We camped in various campsites and enjoyed the clean air, good weather, beautiful scenery and friendship of other campers. We spent our days hiking along the coast and through the woods and in the evenings, made dinner at our campsite, eating smores by the fire and spending quality time together. In Southern Oregon, we camped at Sunset Bay State Park, just across the road from the beach. The following day, we hiked from Sunset Bay to Cape Arago, a fairly easy eight and a half mile walk that took us through the gorgeous gardens in Shore Acres State Park to the sea lions at Cape Arago, with plenty of photo ops along the way.

    Santiago Without Her Monument

    Santiago Without Her Monument

    On this particular Caribbean evening my thoughts were drifting me into a state of discontent. From a rooftop in Santiago de los Caballeros, I sat, as any introvert does at some point during a friendly gathering, alone. Alone in a corner of a rooftop without my well traveled notebook whom I usually talk to on nights like this one.

The man snaps a few more photos of his wife sitting, standing, strutting up the stairs. The man and his wife depart; two more take their place.

    What Does an LED Ring Light Do for Photography

    What Does an LED Ring Light Do for Photography

    It's hard to take a decent close-up photo without tinkering with lighting in a skillful way. Erratic lighting casts harsh shadows, distorts contours, and increases glare. Fortunately, there's no shortage of tools that help manipulate lighting.

    My New Little Polaroid Camera

    My New Little Polaroid Camera

    So, I don't know if you remember the original Polaroid camera from back in the day? (See below). I was excited when I found they had brought it back and made it cuter than ever! As you can see from the original, it wasn't that exciting to look at, but it was an exciting new technology (for that time), whereas you could take a picture and have it appear right away, and after about a minute, it developed on its own and you were able to have your pictures right away! But Polaroid went away and we didn't see it for years.
