Unless You Will issue 24

Unless You Will issue 24

Blogging about this today, it’s an Australian online photo magazine. This issue is concerned with landscape photography and how artists connect to the land and photograph it.

The issue features 10 photographer’s practices on landscape photography and a really nice quote from Seneca in “Letters From A Stoic” –

“Are you telling me

not to investigate

the natural world?

Are you trying to bar
me from the whole
of it and restrict me
to a part of it?
Am I not to inquire
into the identity of
the artist who created
that universe?
Or the process by
which the huge mass
became subject to
law and order?
Or the nature of the
one who collected
the things that were
scattered apart, sorted
apart the things that
were commingled,
and when all things
lay in formless chaos
allotted them their
individual shapes?
Or the source of the
light (is it fire or is it
something brighter?)
Am I supposed not
to inquire into this
sort of thing?”

Photo shoots I’ve loved #11

This week it’s Oleg Oprisco’s incredible images. I found his portfolio on Photography Served and was immediately drawn to the images. They are ethereal, dreamy, soft focused with lots of bokeh… just what I like, really! Not much else to say about them!

What do you think of them? Do you like them as much as I do?

PS: I started my photography course proper today so I’ll have work to show soon… keep in touch with the links to Tumblr and Flickr, above, too!

Thursday post series #7: updates

 

Apologies for not posting yesterday, I don’t feel very inspired at the moment! I’ll be sure to write a post on what inspires me next week.
So, now on to the seventh post in this series. I’ve been so busy the last few weeks. This week has been quiet (thankfully). I got an interview date for a Photography course (it’s on the 29th) so I’ve tried to put together a portfolio for that, I’m going to get prints tomorrow so I’m nearly finished. I need to plan and shoot one more project and print it and I’ll be finished. Chai Media finished filming Aisling Conlan last week so we need to get editing on that soon! The photography studio where I’m interning asked us to film a promotional video for them so I wrote a proposal for that the other day, I need to edit it and see what they think.

Busyness is good :D

How has your week been?

PS: I followed back all my followers (that’s a mouthful!) to show my appreciation, thank you!

Monday post series #8: photoshoots I’ve loved

 

Apologies for not posting on Friday. I was mega busy filming and I didn’t have a chance to sit down and write a post. Anyway, without further ado, here’s the eighth post in the “Photo shoots I’ve loved” series (can’t believe I’ve done this for two months already…). This week it’s “Calla Lily” by JP Terlizzi. This is a fine art photography series on a lily (obviously ;)) and it’s amazing. The photographs are lit by a single flash unit and are in black and white. They depict one single lily in a new, fresh, unfamiliar way.
