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.

Dazzling Radiance

When you have cold a chilly mornings, that is when you realize that a sunrise is a beautiful thing. The Rain season started not long ago, and today is the second day I did not experience a sunrise. But to cover it up, I have some beautiful sunrise photos I took back in Malindi.  I hope it does brighten your morning. Giving you the Dazzling Radiance of the Sunrise ( or just the sun in general)

Photo of the Day- Ocean Cows

8 Feb

I was going to give you that, ‘this photo shall be delivered without words ‘ but,.. Hey, I think I wanna say something, I mean, its my blog right>???

It was in the evening, the sun was setting, then I see these Cows, with their herdsmen. I used to think, well, basically from my Social Studies class, that people who lived by the ocean were solely fishermen, boy,was I in for a surprise. Then again I thought, If Animals can communicate, can you imagine the type of stories these Cows hear??? It is like living in a different world all together, and they are the aliens.

 

While you ponder about this, The photo shall be delivered without more words.

Forced Perspective

24 Jan

While down at the Coast, What my brothers and I did most of the time, when we were not out there swimming, or having some sort of constructive fun, we were taking photos. Forced perspective photos. As a matter of fact, we did not only do it the three of us, but my parents were involved some of the times.

If you ask me, this is a very fun and fulfilling type of photography that you can try out in a group, or sometimes on your own( will show you examples in the next post). As I said it is so much fun. But just what exactly is forced perspective?

it is a technique that employs Optical Illuison to make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is. It is used primarily in photography, filmmaking and architecture. It manipulates human visual perception through the use of scaled objects and the correlation between them and the vantage point of the spectator or camera.

More info here. Forced Perspective

The first batch for me to roll out ( anticipate more this week)

MONOCHROMED WORDS

15 Jan

So I was inspired by @SteveKitots to try out Monochromed photos. He does it soo well on his blog you immediately fall in love. So, fine, I have not had a great monochrome friendly shot, but I decided to use any, and somehow, I landed on this one, took it along the shore of the beach. My brother and I wanted to do this for some girl somewhere, but I guess the matter was soon forgotten.

Monochrome is a good style, Maybe one day I will be very comfortable with it ( why lie, I love Color)

Check out his blog, there’s so much talent in there LINK
