Let just side step the fact this is a day late, perhaps an intentional mistake to happily coincide with National Photography Day. A day, that speaks to me personally and one that we should all acknowledge. Founded in 2009 by an Australian photographer Korke Ara the 19th of August was chosen to celebrate World Photo Day.
A worldwide celebration of the history of arts, science and photography. An important day where we can all help inspire the next generation to understand the importance of photography.
With todays modern technological advances most people now own a smart phone which has a fairly decent camera. Now more the ever we have so many user friendly apps to help edit images. With over one billion users on Instagram is great to see so many people picking up their camera or phone and snapping away.
For me I can still vividly remember how excited I was to find something that spoke to me. I was in my year 11 Film and television course and as I looked into the viewfinder to frame my shot I was hooked. I spent many years focusing on cinematography and lighting. Important elements which also helped shaped my photography style.
It was only when I bought my first DSLR in 2012 where I started this blog and decided to focus on photography. Originally this page was created to help inspire me to pick up my camera and shoot. Even now in 2019 I always like to explore new ways to help me create innovative images. I love how you are able to learn from each job and am always excited for what the future will bring. So I thought I would share some of my favourite images I shot in the last year with you below. I will be interested to see what this year brings and hopefully compare images this time next year. Let me know if you have a favourite.
