Through my years as a photographer, my interest has varied. Sometimes I would do everything but taking pictures, other times I can't be without my camera. Lately it has been the latter.
I love taking pictures right now, to such an extent that when I'm not running and shooting, I'm at home binge watching photographers on YouTube. Just to learn more about the art of photography.
Most of what I have learned, I'm trying to implement when taking pictures outside, even though it might be hard to do when I'm on my own out there. I don't have a tripod, and my camera is so outdated that it's almost half my age! I have really had to learn how to make the most out of what I have, whether it is requires tying the camera to a post to get a higher point of view, or leaving it on the ground with stones underneath the lens for the correct low angle.
I study immensely to achieve something greater than what I already do on a regular basis, and I'm deeply influenced by especially the two youtubers, Thomas Heaton and Peter Mckinnon. Both with drastically different views on photography.
Thomas is the quiet old school landscape photographer who spends a day walking alone around the woods for just one perfect shot, while Peter is a more impulsive guy hanging out with his friends shooting when they find something cool.
Both these guys have given me so many ideas, and continue to do so on a weekly basis. It has in my mind developed my photography greatly and have made my love for the art increase drastically.
Every shot from this post has been taken in the last couple of weeks with ideas I have gotten from these two photographers. If you like them you are more than welcome to leave a comment here, on facebook or on instagram.
