In lately I’ve been taking a lot of pictures, shooting both digital and film. My favorite camera to use has been Minolta XG-M (you can see it in this short video of mine and Arlen’s camera collection-we’ve been pretty much hoarding equipment- since this video was taken we acquired another plastic camera, a lens filter and converters that enable using Nikon lenses on Canon bodies).
Almost every day we’ve been getting up around 3 30 AM and going for long walks around area where I live and taking tons of pictures. I really enjoy shooting before and around sunrise, light is unbelievably beautiful, air is clean and crisp, there are no distracting people around and we get to see many cool animals. Just last week we saw red tailed hawk, many storks and herons, huge hare, hundreds of baby frogs jumping through grass, a deer running through a wheat field and many more…
Speaking of wheat fields here is a photo of me standing in one of them, picture was taken by Arlen just few minutes after a sunrise.
Also, in lately I’ve been having many ideas for self-portraits but since my remote is broken I haven’t been able to shoot them so I’ve been writing down my ideas and doodling storyboard for photo shoots that will hopefully happen very soon.
Until then I’ve been having fun using a fish tank as a photo prop but I still need to find more creative ways to utilize it :)
In last month or so my (creative) life has been revolving mostly around photography-taking pictures, editing them, working on several new projects… I’m tempted to share everything I do right now but for various reasons I can’t yet (at least not for another month or two) but if you’re interested you can take a peek at my “analog” flickr account where I post new pic here and there :)
