Last month I wrote a post looking at some of the main genres of photography and what makes them unique which you can find here, as there are so many it would have turned into an essay so this is the 2nd half of that post. What is your favourite type of photography? What attracts you to an image?
Although the Winter months are looming on the horizon (which does the beg the question where did this year go?!) there's still time for more seasonal based content. Some adore this time of year with its cinnamon lattes, crunchy leaves and scarves whilst others don't appreciate the longer nights and chillier temperatures but there's always something to take inspiration from. Here's a list of a few Autumnal blog posts, what is your favourite type of A/W post? Who has written some good stuff this year?
Despite our best intentions and wishes coupled with the deserved success of other in the field - gaining any kind of notoriety let alone a full time career can be tough in blogging. Creating a wage from your space on the internet is not a goal achieved by everyone. This means blogging has to be a balance of passion and how you actually pay the bills. So in not wanting to give up your release or form of expression, how do you find a harmony between work and your blog?
There is no real universal defining threshold you cross that means you've somehow graduated into long term relationship status, in fact some couples accomplish big life goals together in hardly any time at all whilst others can take a little longer. Me and my gent have been together nearly 4 years and in the grand scheme of things but for both of us this is the longest time we've spent with a partner. Here are a few things I've learnt from being with another person, was there a moment in your relationship when you thought yes they're a keeper or we've made it long term?
There are a whole host of different types of style, even more so when considering things on a more personal basis. Although not the most adventurous I prefer a more monochromatic, minimal way of dressing, it may seem simplistic in terms of fashion but there are some positives (and cons) to wearing more subtle items of clothing. Here's a list of reasons why I choose a less flashy approach in the 'style' stakes. How would you define your sense of style and why you like it o much?
The Winter months are fast approaching and even though we're in Autumn I'm one of those people who is permanently on the chilly side so despite the air-con still in use at the office, the breeze and the dropping degrees outside there are a few ways to hold on to that beloved warmth. How do you keep in the heat despite the fact we're in the later stages of the year?
For some school is an amazing place to not only collect valuable life long memories but can also be an amazing spring board of a platform for your educational and possible work career. Whilst it can teach you a lot of things unfortunately it doesn't teach you everything - like being a fully functioning adult. Here's a few things I didn't learn from school (and in some cases still haven't), what do you wish you'd learnt at school in your more formative years?
Things have been a little quiet over here of late and although it may not feel like it a lot of things have been happening behind the scenes. This personal catch up has been long over due so I thought I'd share where I've visited, the good and the not so great, what is the recent news with you? What are you most excited about at the minute?
The world of photography is huge, it's so big that it can be broken down into different genres that your imagery can fall into but it also means that have the ability to either fully immerse yourself into a singular type or feel free to flit between several in fact there are so many categories to fall into that this post has had to be split into 2. My previous posts include Part 3 (found here) which denotes formal elements, Part 2 (found here) discuss lighting types and angles and lastly the first segment with Part 1 (found here) looks at the holy trinity of photography (ISO, shutter speed and aperture). This post will breakdown the most recognisable genres and what makes them stand out, what is your favourite type of photography? What attracts you to an image?
After a break in exercise it can be really daunting to try try returning with fresh determination and enthusiasm but here are a few things I've learned from taking some time away then coming back to the exercising.
