Neever be tempted to process all your shots as soon as you return from a trip! going back years later and looking at your shots with fresh eyes, brings out a whole new perspective. This shot of lago argentina in Patagonia, was shot in 2006 with my first digital compact. If i’m not mistaken, I think thats a drumlin by the lake – this landscape was a glacial geography dream!
Another 90 minute musical journey from East London DJ, producer and BALEARICA promoter – Steve Lee – together with his studio partner, full time musician Andy “Slim” Black. Together they are better know as ‘The Project Club’. And they make great music.
Strobism: SB700 through softbox camera right 1/4 power
Andrew’s stuff is well worth a follow on Soundcloud, here’s a smoove mix perfect for a sunny and lush May weekend in England
One of my favourite shots from two recent portrait shoots in Holborn. This is a style I’ve been visualising through my aforementioned ‘winter project’ to re-learn off-camera flash, as a general feel I wanted to express through mixing enironmental photography, blended with elements of portraiture. Very simple lighting, minimal editing to emphasise the setting, and of course the model and choice of clothing, all helped contribute to a shot I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with.
The ever reliable Mr Leftside Wobble turns his attentions to one of my favourite 90′s london soul classics, Jhelisa’s ultra smoove ‘Friendly Pressure’. A little beefed up and jacked out here, all perfectly served in time for those sun drenched days ahead of us.
A nice chilled mix which popped up over on my Soundcloud Dashboard this evening. This has to be my favourite time of year for music, 2011 certainly isn’t disappointing as the scene gears up for another hazy summer.
aka NYC’s mandatory pilgrimage for landscape photographers. A friend asked me on Flickr how I held this still , considering tripods arent allowed and this is a very windy location from which to shoot! I was desperate for ISO 100 so toughed it out in the high winds and -20 C temperature, using RAW to help me in PP. The only way i could get it still was to handhold the camera down flat on the concrete turrets they have there, shield it best I could by hunching over the camera and keeping still. I think its a skill I’ve developed from shooting HDR for 3 years and often being caught short with no tripod! Still, none of my “+2″ exposures worked. I dont have a gorillapod zoom but even the guys there using those were unable to shoot it seemed, the wind was that strong! Tripods were out of the question too.
