A landscape from my Maine excursion last June. Besides the bright (infrared) grasses and the large rocks, I like how you can see the rocks through the shallow water, yet see the reflected trees near the far shore.

Hiking Skirrid Fawr, Abergavenny, Wales

Skirrid Fawr, Abergavenny, United Kingdom

Flag of GB

Instead of promised blue skies, we were met with poor light, fog and low clouds along the way that moved in and out as we circled the mountain and until we reached the sunshine and promised blue skies.
This was a favourite image from the day. "Favourite" is defined differently by us all and for different values. So here's why...
It was a tough climb to get to the top of the mountain and tougher for my 12 year old nephew but along the way I believe he learned a lesson about effort, reward and achievement and their relationship. His adventurers pose is therefore well earned and a fine memory of a great day.
The image is also a lesson in technique and chance, not necessarily in equal parts:
- getting your subject to stand as you want them to (if you can persuade them long enough);
- using light for silhouette
- and here's the chance - when the light is so varied that you can't clearly see the camera settings - set up and take a chance...it could end up being a favourite image.

Chinese puppetry is a tradition that is slowly losing ground and becoming rare in Singapore.

The faces and colours of these puppets, together with the intricate details of their costumes has always fascinated me, not to mention the skilful art of manipulating a puppet by the puppeteer from above to bring each puppet to life.

Thus when I come across this rare performance near where I lived, I know I have to capture some photographs of this intriguing craft!

I love shooting during the golden hour at dusk, always looking out for backlit subject and lens flare in my composition.

Chanced upon this scene when I was walking around the neighbourhood one quiet evening.
Was actually hoping for a subject (insect, animal or person etc) to come into the scene "silhouetted" to give more visual context and a more interesting composition but no luck.

The sun was setting fast and guess I would have to make do with this for now.

On our approach

Devon, United Kingdom

Flag of GB

On our approach to land at Dunkerswell airfield in Devon, we had flown down from a grass airstrip in Somerset to refuel. I had become friendly with a former Royal Air Force pilot who owned this historic Auster. It was built in the late 1930's and saw service during the 2nd World War. I was only visiting to look at the Auster and a few other aircraft kept at the airfield but as it needed fuel Mike asked me if I would like to accompany him, and I jumped at the opportunity. This was doubly a pleasure as not only had I never had the experience of flying in a light aircraft, but also it was multiplied with the fact that my dear departed Father had flown in an Auster while he was in the RAF during the 2nd World War. Even more amazing during the flight back to Somerset Mike gave me the opportunity to fly the aircraft for a while, something I was absolutely blown away by.

Isle of Lewis, United Kingdom

Arranged in a cruciform pattern with a central stone circle, the Callanish Stones are on the Isle of Lewis in the Hebrides Islands of Scotland. Believed to be built in the late Neolithic era, they were used for Bronze Age ritual activity.

We visited twice at sunset. I took this the first night. The second night looked even bleaker, so I was wandering around taking other compositions when the sky magically turned pink, and the more patient photographers in the group got a better shot than this!

Street editorial photography

I want to merge the style of street and editorial photography when photographing the subject. Thus I had her positioned before this traffic junction along this busy street, blending and putting her in the comfort of the crowds she sees everyday.

At the same time, I made her stand out from each shot by keeping her still and dragging the shutter to blur out the crowd and traffic both in the foreground and background to achieve the effect of a "layered" composition.

The light was pretty complex at this martial arts meeting. The main light was backlighting and on the other side there were two spotlights which, appart failing to really light the scene, made it very difficult to take pictures. After spending a good part of the evening wondering how to counter this light, I ended up realizing that rather than going against it I could try to play with it.

Behind the funeral home... The front of this building had an entrance and signage for a funeral home, It was closed when we passed, but there was no indication that it was out of business. Out back, these three vehicles implied a long closed establishment. The peeled paint is not an "overnight" development, and the flat tire also indicated disuse. I darkened and desaturated this a bit to make for a more somber mood.

Winter Benches

First real snow of the season which was just enough to cover the ground and trees. As a result, we drove to one of the private parks for some landscape and bird photos. This happens to be one of our favorite areas.
There were only three sets of footprints in the snow. One set on the road and we were the other set of footprints. In other areas our foot prints were accompanied by deer and turkey prints. We seen only two deer which promptly ran away. They were very skittish this day.
Although, it was a dark cloudy morning, the storm clouds gave way to sunshine in the afternoon. I wonder if anyone sat on the benches when the sun came out?

With a little help from a light projector, I managed to travel back in time to create this street scene of old New York without the need for a time machine.

Decided to take things a step further by merging "street photography" with a fashion theme.

The experimental concept/idea here is to show the contrast and juxtaposition of the what's new and modern against the old and rustic New York city street.

Unlike other cinemas that were decorated simply, the Capitol featured elaborate decorations on its walls and ceilings.

Levitation fashion photography

Singapore, Singapore

Flag of SG

In this series of photos, I experimented with the combination of fashion photography and the concept of levitation photography (made popular by Natsumi Hayashi) to create a series of levitation photo that seems to defy gravity.

Timing is critical as the model actual jumps and I have to take the shot at exactly the right moment to create the natural levitation look.

I worked with this fashion designer and decided to shoot his entire fashion collection (for this series) against a black and white checkered setting which gives a sense of distortion of perspective and yet is able to make his collection/design stand out.

For the Aminus3 prompt Nightfall.

I took this on our amazing trip to Norway. We were on a cruise to Tromso in November last year in the hope of seeing the Northern Lights. We took a coach trip into the countryside to a dark sky area the night we docked and as we were traveling the coach driver stopped the bus and suggested we get out and look. We were treated to this incredible sight, and to add to it one of the nearby farms must have had dogs, because when the lights began to show more vivid the dogs began to howl like you would expect a pack of wolves. This really was one of the most amazing things I've ever witnessed and for my wife and I a bucket list event ticked off as well as something we will never forget.

A Crested Caracara perched on a fence post by a farm in rural Okeechobee County, Florida. The Caracara is in the falcon family and largely feeds on carrion, birds, reptiles and amphibians. You often see them around Vultures. Vin and I just read a fascinating book about Caracara. It is "A Most Remarkable Creature" by Jonathan Meiburg.

Sunrise from Mt. Fremont

Mt. Rainier NP, United States

Flag of US

After visiting the First Borough for sunrise a few years ago, Dad (https://steveinjapan.aminus3.com) and I planned to visit Mt. Fremont as the trail to the lookout intersects the route we were on, and it looked promising. Unfortunately, he never made it to Mt. Fremont as far as I know, although he might've been up to the lookout in his younger days. The trail features stunning vistas and a fire lookout. When I was there, a ranger was at the lookout. While no longer active, the lookout is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Anyway, I think he would have enjoyed the view of Mount Rainier from there.

It's a shopping mall in Geneva. I took 2 photos in double exposure mode of my Lumix S5 with 50mm 1.8. Some work with the shadows in Neo, that's all.
