ITS BEEN A YEAR.

3 Sep

So its been a year since I decided to start this blog specifically for photography and creativity related stuff. True, it has gone through major changes and I have taken time really discovering myself and what I really love and would like to pursue. I was looking through and at some of the images that I have shot over the year. Actually. almost all the images I have posted here I shot last year. Yeup, I have almost shot zero photos that I have uploaded to this blog.

As a year elapses, I am just about to acquire my first DSLR camera, and I gotta say, things done changed. I have not uploaded any photo that I shot this year, since most of them have been going into my photography sketchbook. Where I have learnt many things, including post processing and even lighting. As  I acquire my first DSLR, I hope to give this new year a run for its creativity. I hope. man, lets pray.

Anywho, as a year elapses, this are some of the photos I shot and I liked. I would probably do it all differently if I had the chance, but I thank God that I had a place to start from and this was it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These should be like the 5 images that I have liked so much over the one year that has passed. I know that I may be able to do so much better now than then, but dont everyone got a place to start. Plus, I shot these using the Sony DSC-HX1 that my Dad owns . I was really limited into what I could do with the photos, plus, I had almost zero lessons in composition and all that other photography related stuff.

WEll, I think I can only say that this is the beginning of newer stuff, strengthening the passion, learning more, and be keen on the road to awesomeness. Oh and by the way, I am not ashamed of my first photos ( those I shared with the world that is.

Rock Art

22 Jan

You have heard of it, seen it in History books, well, ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, 21st Century Rock Art.

Rock art happens to be among the earliest forms of writing and art that man ever did. The first drawing pad was against the wall, its unfortunate to think that that has evolved into Graffiti, but then again come to think of it, Graffiti is actually a very cool form of art. Solid line of thought there, that there were budding and passionate artists that just spent their time drawing on the walls. I can imagine it grew into a fad, it was the in thing, Rock artists would meet and make sure they scribble in all the Rocks that they found. Then we also got Rock art enthusiasts, the Chiefs and elderly people who purchased the forms of art. Those who Bought a Cave, as a collection since it had Art in it.

There were respected Rock Artists, those whom everyone died to emulate, an art icon, one who in the villages was known more that Da Vinci would ever be known, whom got all the girls, all the pretty ones. Of course, the girls would almost do anything to be drawn by this now artistic Lord.  The Lord of the Rock Art.

We can only imagine how it was. Any ways, I came across ROCK ART that I thought I should share. The beauty of Rock art, is that it was designed to pass a message. It was a way of Communication, a Story told, talking of Wars, Famine or even Love. This one right here is to cover the same purpose. To Communicate to tell a story, to show.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Rock Art.
