Patience

It is a very rare occasion that I get to process my images within 24hrs of capture. Some photographers prefer to process their images straight after capture. I prefer to wait and I’ve learned that being patient has its own results. They are several reasons as to why this process works for me. There are…

An open mind

For several years now, I have walked the streets of London. Like most popular cities in Europe, the streets are cluttered with buildings. Some older than I am and others a lot more recent but each as fascinating as the next. Common to many, London has a wide variety of architectural styles from a variety…

Patterns and Geometry

As as I am drawn to create more minimal sometime abstract images, I can’t but be captivated by patterns. Patterns not in the usual way. Patterns are all around us. They are an innate parts of most art mediums. Our ability to recognise patterns is a baseline skill for the human eye. It is a…

Monday’s Photography Inspiration – Pedro E. Guerrero

Guerrero was just 22 in 1939 when Frank Lloyd Wright took an amused look at his portfolio of photographs and hired him to document his work. Wright’s spur-of-the-moment decision began an association that lasted 20 years, until the architect’s death in 1959. It produced some of the most powerful photographs ever taken of Wright’s work and…

Ágora

Valencia, more precisely the City of Arts has been popular amongst photographers since its completion in 2009. It has always been on my list of architecture to see. The structure I am sharing today is that of Agora. A diaphanous large hall built of steel arches, and a roof made in glass. It is meant…

Photography Clichés

I was going through some old images the other day and noticed something. I saw a pattern that I never noticed before. Although I push myself not to create the same things over and over again, I must admit that I have my favourites. Favourite composition, favourite edits even. Unfortunately for me, some of those…

Explanations

We have all become accustom to artists as well as photographers explaining the vision behind their work. Although I know that this is a good, it is something that I’ve always struggled with myself. I constantly struggle with putting my thoughts on paper and explaining the vision behind my work even though it is clear…

The waste of it all

One of my biggest fears is the fear of wasting time. This fear is so ingrained in me that I find myself feeling guilty for not even working sometimes. I grew up with having my days planned out including after school activities so I guess I was trained in advance. My days are currently set…

Using ND filters for night photography

When I first tried my hand at night photography, there were something about the images that left me unsatisfied. To be quite honest, the images were simply dull and not what I was looking forward to especially  since  the images will later be in black and white. I wanted a result that captured the city…

Monday’s Photography Inspiration – Marcel Gautherot

Marcel Gautherot was a French-Brazilian photographer. He was best known for his documentation in some three-thousand images of the construction of the Brazilian capital city Brasilia from 1958 to 1960. He initially studied architecture but then dedicated himself to photography. He came to Brazil in 1940, his interest in the country awakened by reading the…
