The Journey is still far...my quest

Every photographer... eventually find out something... what actually they are good at! I still search, and critique my own work.

For some it's that unchanny ability to capture the moment,
others... can bring out that "special side", of their subject.

Some can play about with light and exposures, like paint and a brush running wild on a canvas.

Creativity balanced with a firm technical know how can produce artistry, that makes you say "Wow!"

I've set a Challenge for myself... If by the end of this year, my work dosent produce that effect..." I will stop taking pictures, ( I am my biggest critic ).... Skee no more!

The above shot, was taken while on a fashion shoot, I was in a crazy mood, so I jumped in a bush and shot through the leaves, the backlighting on the models hair was quite tricky, if care was not taken, the strong sunlight would have bleeched out all the colours.

I like the blur patches of green, makes the scene feel very magical. The best shot you've posted so far!
Hey it's Bebe. Nice concept. I bet Tosin will be very pleased with you on this shot.

Nice shot ... VERY ANTM ("America's Next Top Model", for those who aren't in the know and have better things to do than watch mediocre but compelling TV on Monday nights) ... though [going into "Mz Tyra" mode] a little more expression in the face would have given it that extra bit of "ooomph". Not the fault of the photographer though, so I say well done!

Wow! So now you don't have to give up. For heaven's sake, please don't give up.

This is a really striking image. The model and the composition are wonderful and the out of focus leaves, (courtesy of f2.8), that complement the facial art are a master stroke.
