Half A Wheel
Hello again folks. Yes a rarity these days, Sinem & Suby posting 2 days in a row. We thought we should just remind you guys that we do also enjoy other forms of photography. Yes majority of our work is people based, but we do also get work from so many diverse clientelle.
This is an image taken hand held about a year ago. We sometimes comment on blogs and sometimes are quite critical of the work we see, this is not because we think we are better photographers, but because we genuinly believe only by us passing on the little knowledge we have, can we help others improve on their art.
We say this cause sometimes we see that some do not think outside the box, photography is not about how much Photoshop/retouching one can do to the imagery, it starts of being about how you see & capture the moment. Some of the most famous and poignant images the world has seen are straight of the camera, no fancy retouching, but the basic elements for a stunning image is always there.
Don't stop at taking a picture of a kid staring at the camera placed centre of the image,
Don't stop at taking a picture at a wedding where the bride is always smiling into the camera,
Don't stop at taking a picture in the studio that looks similar to a million other images you have taken or seen.
Don't stop at taking the norm, capturing the same, doing what everyone else does.
Let your mind have fun, make your camera an extension of your mind:
have fun with the moments you capture,
how you capture them,
why you capture them and
how you intend to present them 1st to yourself and then the world.
Are you reinventing the wheel? NO
But you darn are going to give it a good bashing to make it your own.
We definitely are still Suby & Sinem - Creative Photographers
