It’s not meant to be a rant, although in that endeavour I’ve quite possibly failed. Anyway, sometimes rants are good reads… See why Nikon are making me nervous right now even though I’ve been a loyal user since 2012.
After reviewing some of my older photography, I’ve come to the conclusion that when it comes to shadow detail, less is often more when you want to retain or emphasise mood and atmosphere.
PIK Magazine, South Korea’s only English-print photography magazine, picked out one of my shots for their Best of 2014 edition. Click to see the image and to find out what else made 2014 such a great year at the Lost Lens.
To say I’ve been a little inactive this week would be an understatement. I thought I’d use this blog update to fill you in on why I appear to have fallen from the face of the Earth, and what I’ve been up to since I posted last.
My photograph of an off-the-beaten-track segment of Boseong’s green tea plantations was selected as Photo of the Month in Gwangju News magazine. I was asked to write a short article about the image.
A first for me in photography, I find my work selected for the cover of a nationally circulated magazine, Busan Haps, as well as a feature on the Must-See places in Korea. Read on to see the photographs and to find out more.
After strolling through a neighbourhood I know and love, I stumble into the murky waters of philosophy in photography. Here I explore the role of the photographer as he who captures and preserves moments for future generations to relate to, to feel and to interpret.
As a lover of live music (this being such a rarity in my neck of the woods), I couldn’t resist the draw of Korea’s newest indie-music festival. Camera in hand, I paid into Big Day South, held in Daegu’s vibrant city-centre. See how I got on with some photography and my reaction from the concert.
Not a fan of classical music, I eschewed the main event and braved the torrential downpours to fire off a few shots at the Fringe Festival, getting to photograph the band of a couple of good friends of mine in the process.
