It's nice to experiment on some dark images. I'm usually shooting food in bright background but it's my first time to work on a dark surface. I kind of like it. This is the recipe of the clever chefs of Studio Neon
A while back I worked on a collaboration shoot with fashion bloggers. I saw this image and I remembered shooting it in landscape/horizontal orientation but I saw this image in Pinterest lately and someone changed it to portrait/vertical orientation. I kind of liked it.
My love in collecting magazines have prompted me to introduce 'Upfront with…' it will be an interview series featuring magazines and/or online journals responding to the interview questions in first person and was very much inspired this interview with Kinfolk Magazine when they launched their first issue. I originally intended for this to be an interview about creatives but that seems to have fell through and now I plan to revive this - with a twist. It's in the works and hopefully the series starts the next couple of weeks.
These mags arrived last week.
I been reading this book lately in the effort to improve my photography. I feel that there is still something that is lacking from my images. I'm constantly searching how to make it better. When I take a frame I hardly ever think about the elements of design and I only shoot what I see and feel good at the time. The aim this year is to work on that. Work on incorporating elements of design for a much stronger composition. At the same time practice comtemplative photography, I know this is hard to do when you're working under pressure, however I'd like to use it when I practice shooting 2 or 3 times a week.
