ain playing a little bit of catch up on my project 52 for the Dogwood 52 Challenge, now on week 12, Artistic: Transportation, our world is one defined by how we get around. Literal or interpretative, find inspiration in transportation.
Again playing a little bit of catch up on my project 52 for the Dogwood 52 Challenge, now on week 11, A landscape, showing beauty in the reflection.
Still playing a little bit of catch up on my project 52 for the Dogwood 52 Challenge, now on week 10 an Environmental / Location Portrait. This is where I can mix a little bit of work with leisure being able to snap my location portrait at work!
So finally I’ve gotten round to shooting week 9, Shadows, and Ill admit its not what I had in mind and not nearly as detailed as I had intended but Studio Cat here seems to think its on so long as I don’t move from my chair.
Ok before I start I must admit that I made a litttttttle mistake last week. I may have shot week 8’s Landscape: Wide Angle/Panorama landscape photo as… Read more “Dogwood 52 Challenge Week 8”
I’ll admit that out of all the Genres involved in this challenge or even in photography landscape is not one that sends shivers of inspiration through my soul to my fingertips and into my shutter count, but landscape is something that I find very therapeutical and personal.
Week 6 was an image of Candy! Despite what people may think Im not really a big candy eater. (Though when I do I binge an little) So the idea of shooting candy didnt inspire me as much as the idea of a headshot or a portrait but thats wht Im doing the Dogwood challenge, to push me to take photos I wouldnt notmally take.
With a busy week working as a photographer I found myself with little or no time to venture out to get my week 5 photo for the Dogwood 52 Challenge, week 5 being a Black and White Landscape.
Even when I dedicated an hour or two of my schedule to venturing out to get a shot the stormy weather would get in the way with trees calling and debris needing to be cleared and fie wood salvaged. Sure enough when I did have a moment free the day had become night or work would pop up and working always takes priority over personal projects. So Sunday came and went leaving me wanting for my black and white landscape however, I refused to give up. I took on this project to inspire me and remind me that there was more than just work to photography. So Monday afternoon I left for work (teaching studio photography for the Dublin Photography School) early and as I headed down the motor way I started to cross off the various locations I had in mind for this photo.
After the first three weeks of shooting a selfie, a landscape and the colour red, the Dogwood Challenge called for a headshot of someone else. I’ll admit that portraiture is a personal favourite for me as I like to try and capture the essence of the model while getting creative with lighting and post production.
