recycling

As a photographer, I enjoy taking lots of photos (as you would assume) however, a lot of the time there are many images that are left unused. whether it’s bits from a projects that never took off or just loose photographs from random places. Either way there’s just no real place for them but you don’t want to waste them. Over the last year I’ve been routing through photographs and putting them in all one folder for something different. I’ve decided to recycle old work by cropping them all into squares. I call this Sqauredom; recycle photos when you’re ‘bored’ with a ‘square’ ratio. All images have potential to be part of this personal project, that’s the whole point, it could be most of the image or just a small corner of it, anything can be done.
What would you guys do with your random photos? Mash them together digitally, simply print them or anything else? Let me know in the comment section if you want to share.

 

Photography In Summer

The weather has been amazing (mostly) over the past month so I made of the most of it and did some natural outdoor photography. Often, when it’s great weather you assume that it’s perfect for photography, especially if you don’t often use the a flash. As any photographer can tell you, this is definitely not the case. You have ensure that the sun is t directly facing your camera because it can in fact damage the sensor and it can ruin your shot too. To work around this, I have found taking close up images and having the hood on the camera lens, also going out in the early evening is great as its still light but the sun isn’t overhead.
It’s always interesting when you can simply walk down your street and find yourself seeing things in a new light, you start snapping away; the sun makes us all feel that bit more positive.
If you guys have had your own challenges and solutions when photographing outdoors and very hot weather feel free to comment below.
