I’m a self taught digital artist specialising in Photoshop and illustrator, with a bit of Maya3d thrown in for good measure.
I’ve recently taken up photography, and bought a Canon 1100D in august 2011.
I did a couple of photoshoots after that to get the feel of the camera, and practice using the manual settings. But the big learning curve was when I went on a trip to Bangkok in late November/December (2011). I took my camera everywhere with me and ended up with close to 64Gb of images.
I learned a lot about my camera and photography on that trip (and had a great time in general).
I’ve since done some more local photoshoots down the Mornington peninsula in Melbourne Victoria (Australia).
And intend to use my camera as often as I can.
I enjoy different aspects of photography.
I love macro. I find it a challenge to capture detail in something small that we often miss. Not to mention Bees and other insects often don’t want to remain still. But I like a challenge.
While in Bangkok I enjoyed just picking a direction at random and going for a walk, meeting people, getting the feel of the city, and often seeing things that were confronting. I think I captured much of that with my photography. I like the idea of capturing the feeling of the moment, the emotion.
I also took some interesting shot of the Thai boxing. This was a challenge to capture the action (fast shutter speed needed) in low light conditions. It took a while fooling around with the setting, but I ended up getting some great shots.
Capturing wildlife can also be interesting. I love my tiger shots. And capturing a bird in flight isn’t always easy, but I have a couple of good shots.
I’ve also taken some landscapes, but have a bit still to learn.
And have just recently taken some long exposure night shots using the bulb setting on my camera. I find this interesting and will no doubt be fooling around with it a great deal in the future, working out the best way to use it, and what different effects I can create.
Please feel free to comment on my photos, as any helpful advice is always appreciated.
I will be putting up some digital art eventually as well
A bit about my background.
I was born and bred in Melbourne Australia.
I’ve worked many different jobs in the past, from factory work to working in radio.
Presently I teach at a University.
But my heart and soul is always focused on those things involving creativity.
And being creative is like breathing to me, with out it I suffocate.
