Visual Journal Challenge #3

Last weeks visual journal challenge was to pick a piece of art that you have created that is your most favourite, one that you are most proud of. Something that, when you aren’t feeling too much like an artist, reminds you that you are an artist. This is one of my favourite photographs I have ever created. It’s not the best photo I have ever …

Shoot What It Feels Like

Shoot what it feels like, not what it looks like. This is something we were told over and over in school. As much as the technical side of things were drilled in to us we were still told that the emotions in the pictures trump everything.  I took this picture of my nephews back in October. It is far from perfect. The youngest isn’t completely …

Conversations With Google

So every now again it’s fun to go back to my childhood and listen to songs from the nineties because lets just face the music was better back then…ok maybe not better…funnier…if that’s a word you can use to describe music…is funnier even a word to being with? Here are a few of ones I remember the most… Britney Spears – Hit Me Baby One …

10,000 Hours

Every now and again I watch vlogs on youtube (don’t judge me, they make for good background noise when you are working) and one day I was watching one of Alfie Deyes videos. He said something that caught my attention “if you don’t put the time in, someone else will.” Sometimes it may seem like way too much effort to work on something when you feel …
