Association

This sunbird first looks to the left and than to the right before ‘going on air’; exactly the way I learned to look before crossing a road many, many years ago. (BTW: My day yesterday: Client ‘complaining’ he’s getting too many customers via Social Media….  AND an enquiry for a photo print from a client in New York, …

Photography and Social Media

For one of my social media clients I recently did a photoshoot during Mother’s Day. The idea was that the pictures would be published on their blog before the extended buffet lunch was over. That was fast work and hurrying up during photo processing. The result however was great. Within 12 hours after the blog …

The Jazz Singer

A week ago I published some pictures of a jazz concert on the blog of one of my clients. I only gave myself 90 minutes to select 12 pictures and process plus publish them on the different social media. It took 93 minutes and the blog post alone got within 2 days more than 600 …

The last Dinosaur of the Sea 2

Exactly one week ago I posted the first study of an imaginary of which the end result will be displayed in a gallery later this year. As I won’t post my gallery pictures on social media let me tell you that at the end there’ll be a picture with me riding the ‘Dinosaur’. Another picture …

THE META SELFIE (rough cut) and the ‘About’ change

Sometime ago I changed my Gravatar with a new self-portrait. This picture is one of many in a new YouTube which I officially launched that day. Although it’s a ‘rough cut’ the tube provides you with an idea of all the processing that goes into the final selfie. The Gravatar image represents the halfway stage of …

The exception of the rule

With an overload of cat and dog portraits on social media I’m reluctant to pollute cyberspace with more cat and dog pictures. But of course there are exceptions. First of all is our own dog but that does not count. I love dogs and, honestly, I’m not a cat person. So it is very special that …

Flickr

And I’m back on Flickr again. Lost my inlog data and so did Yahoo/Flickr … Had to start a new account. You can find me there. Hope you will like it!

In the meantime …

I have changed the blog theme. The new theme -Forever- has a more refreshing look and is one of the themes that allows a slide show. See the right column of my blog. Still have to work on the colours (background, etc.) but that will come in due time. In the meantime also I got …

In the book shop

‘Hemingways’ in Hermanus (South Africa) is a real collectors bookshop named after the American writer Ernest Hemingway. I just got the assignment from owners Beth and Noel Hunt to make a photographic document of this unique shop. Once you enter you go back in time. Not only the old books but also the ‘bric and …

My Passion

In response to those who think (and recently expressed via diverse Social meda as some local wannabees did) that Photoshop (and other photo-processing software) is no better than ‘violating reality’. In that case, I should have ‘violating the reality’ more throughout my life.  Come to think of it, black and white is also manipulating… the world …
