The road less traveled is the best path

Taken as I left a store with my Cybershot. Wanted to capture the street and the nature I live around. The are I live in is blended with farmland and suburbs. 

The best way to change is to go down the road you have neglected as it’s usually that road you want to take. You have to face fear and take it kn. You will be a much better person for doing so. 

Happy Halloween,

Life is a wonder so Let the cat be curious forever

On a lovely Saturday evening as the sun goes down two creatives walk. Without a care we take shots and embrace nature through our photos. Curious about out surroundings we take shots we normally wouldn’t. Improving and expanding. 

Took this shot in an open field with my little sister. She used me for her model despite me being the photographer. It’s not something I normally do but I did it. It made improve as a photographer as I was able to out myself in my subjects shoes. It was something I feared but what was necessary for me to grow so I’m very thankful that I did it. 

Taken with my Cybershot at 7pm with wonderful light. 

May you be curious for life,

David

Lights and industrial play

Explored a hardware store and find a lot of subjects to shoot. Took this with my Samsung Galaxy S3. It’s easier to take shots while staying invisible as possible. 

Worked with lighting, would have liked to expose the shadow more. I’m going to work on that in the future. Had a lot of fun just going around and shooting in this store.

Have fun too!

Lines and learning from mistakes

Are so important in photography. In the beginning I wasn’t paying attention to vertical lines present in my shots. Until I watched a video by Jared Polin who discussed this. I noticed that my lines looked like they were falling back making the building feel like they were falling.

For a while I made sure that I paid attention to vertical lines but I stopped paying attention because it became natural. I improved so much by noticing slight mistakes and improving those mistakes by making corrections until I don’t make those mistakes again. 

You really just have to notice the little things because they can greatly improve yourself as a person, artist, and photographer or whatever you do. 

Be great never good,

David

A little red on a sunny day

Roaming around in deep thought I captured this shot hoping to capture the character of the barn. At first it was too dark so I had to brighten it up and decided to keep the color rather than turn it into a black and white photo. The red really stands out thanks to the sky and the surrounding objects. 

Working with space and color on this one. 

Was taken with my Cybershot in the afternoon. I go all out in whatever I do so I’m always prepared. I always have a camera with me. I’m obsessed with my creativity and life in a good way aka I’m passionate. Are you?

Have a great day,

David 

Space and Shadows 

Was a cloudy Monday as I made my way to the tennis courts. I took my camera out and took several shots which elevated my mood. Took this with my Cybershot around 9:30am. Working with space, shadows, and that crack. 

I love the grittiness of the ground it showcases a lot of photography elements that I like. Anyone who follows this blog knows that I love shadows. Working hard to develop a better understanding of light and shadows.

Had a wonderful day. Improving as a photographer, a tennis player, and as a man. 

Good luck on your journey,

David

What is your why? 

On a Wednesday morning decided to take shots as I waited for a class to start. I enjoy capturing the temporary buildings around the courts as they show age and a lot of detail that most people simply walk past.

This was taken with my Cybershot sometime around 10am with shadows in mind. I loved the sky on that day as it was beautifully clouded.

What is the reason you wake up? What are your reasons for doing what you do? What’s your why? Do you even know the meanings behind you why? If not I suggest diving deep into your mind to find these answer.

What’s your why? Mine is the passion to tell stories through capturing moments because it’s what makes me feel good and it’s something I can offer that helps others.

Have a great day go Raiders,

David

Be Unstoppable 

I took this shot with my Cybershot in the rain using my umbrella to guard myself and my camera from the rain.I enjoy the reflections thanks to the puddles from the rain. 

 You shouldn’t use the weather as an excuse to not be active or to not take shots. Be a mailman and get out there. Someone that has true passion will go out and be unstoppable. 

If there’s will there’s a way. 

Have a great day,

David 

Full metal photography 

I take a lot of photos of industrial subjects. Due to where I live and where I go its easy to capture them. I enjoy the coldness and general shape of various machines. Someone once said I wrote like a robot as I tend to have a hard time to express my emotions. 

I’m a little better but still have a ways to go. Anyway, I got the idea to fuse machines and people in my photography thus steam punk came into my mind. Steam punk is gritty, it’s fantasy plus realism, it’s creative, and fuses several of my interests. Now I just have to discover the path to realize that idea. 

This was taken with my Cybershot before my tennis class started. I hoped to capture the grittiness and age of the subject. 

Been in the mood to watch full metal panic a lot. 

Not a problem!

Keep positive: A beautiful cloudy day

I noticed beautiful clouds and I knew this building might offer something more interesting. I took this shot and saw the clouds being shown on the building. I captured harsh shadows but very little it appears. I captured a little bit of the grittiness of the surrounding area which I love. 

I took this shot during the busiest time so I do have someone in motion in the shot. Took this with my Samsung Galaxy S3.

Your first 15 minutes in your morning should be not used and used to motivate you to not waste a single moment.

Have a good day and keep your head up,

David
