Unexpected Lessons

They are many reasons why I would never claim to be a patient person. I find myself losing interest mid-conversations and very often when watching movies. This particular personality flaw has not been aided in any shape or form in this digital age. I get frustrated when my computer slows down or when my phone…

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…

Forgotten and Rediscovered

Some images take longer to edit others. Some images come together as easily in my head as if I simply pressed the shutter of my camera. Some images come slower than the line. They are forgotten and then rediscovered. This image fits within the box of the later. It was not a bad image when…

Repeated Patterns

Although my work can be on the abstract side from time to time, I’ve found myself noticing patterns that surround me.

After purchasing my first DSLR, I distinctively remember being very excited and my choice. Since my aim was to learn, I purchased every magazine out there that had a “How To……………” on the cover. Inside every one of these magazines, I found a new camera or new lens review, a camera comparison and with all…

The benefit of practicing our photography

Although I’ve picked up my first camera for almost ten years, they are still many aspects of photography that I still love and many aspects that keep me curious. One thing that I often do is practice my photography. In this instance, I am not talking about capturing images but practicing different aspects of my…
