"Jimmy blow horn, live in brussels"
All Hail.......! Just joking!
SKEE is BACK! Anyone miss me? It seems like I've been away for yonks, guys, it's just been a week!
So good to be back, peeps been asking stuff like, "Where's Skee at?"
I Have been on holiday and I also went last thursday to Brussels for 3 nights.
Over the next couple of weeks maybe, I will show you abit of my travel photography starting with Brussels!
Yup, Suby, Something different from Skee-dazzle!
hoping you guys will stick around, I've tried to take alot of pictures
from different and un-convetional angles, just to show you that, even
if you've seen it before elsewhere a little injection of creativity
makes a big difference.
I've also shot quite a number of my shots, actually well over 75% with wide angle with an off camera flash.
Often this with present the picture from a "3rd party" point of view... So join me as I present...
3 DAYS IN BRUSSELS...SKEE STYLEE!
ABOUT TODAYS SHOT!
day I walked the average of 8 hours minimum, with my full camera kit.
This was my first time in Brussels and I didn't want to miss a thing ;-)
But as they say, good shots come when one least expects, so be ready, always :-)
The fence, the trees, the background plus the lighting and of course the subject made my day here.
For alot of my work I tend to use flashguns to provide that extra
sparkle, Here is no different, the flash was held at about 45 degrees
to the camera with my free arm.
Thoughts of the day
In this shot, quite alot of compositional elements came into play:
• The direction of light
• The position of the fence.
• Contrast ( Light and shade )
• Diagonal and horizontal lines
As well as the element of space. These in their right combination make
the difference. The next time you go out snapping, try to add if your
not already doing so, some of these and see the difference it makes.
