I’ve been having trouble deciding between these two images – and I can’t seem to get a constant answer between people I ask either! Some people prefer the color version while others prefer the black and white version. I think I might like the black and white version a little bit more, or at least I did when I was updating my online portfolio as I have selected the B&W version for it. What do you think?

We all take shots that didn’t turn out well, didn’t focus right, or our light reading was wrong… whatever the reason there can sometimes be a way to save the photo and turn it into something great. The shot I have uploaded was a result of me messing up and trying to fix it, it came out quite well, at least in my opinion.

I’ve decided to dedicate a bit of my spare time to uploading some of the photos I have taken over the past year or so to Shutterstock. The payout per download isn’t that high – 33cents US - but it will add up and will earn me a bit more than just having my photos sitting there on my hard drive! Up to this date I have mostly just uploaded vector illustrations and they have been seeling quite well – but I figured I should see how my photos sell!

Today’s shot is another photo which I took during my time in Jonkoping, Sweden. The photoshoot ran for about two hours and we came up with some pretty impressive shots, especially after a little editing in Photoshop. I would be curious to see how the images would turn out after messing around with them in HDR Max. The cloud patterns at the time were quite interesting and I would say that they would look striking after passed through and HDR editing program. However, with only one exposure per shot they probably would be quite noisy.

I am pretty hungry but there isn’t too much in the fridge so I have decided to post one of my food photographs. This shot was taken while I was living in Melbourne for a company called the Fruit Delivery Company. From what I understand the Fruit Delivery Company offers a service where businesses or individuals can register to have top quality fruit delivered to their address once a week. It seems like an interesting idea, I wouldn’t mind having a couple boxes of fruit delivered to my place each week! I am really missing the Australian fruit over here in Sweden, it just doesn’t taste the same!

Here we go with a different kind of shot; the image was taken of Tanya at a friend’s studio in Sydney. I had a few weeks in Sydney before I left for Sweden and decided to organize a few shoots to add some new images to my portfolio. I will add some more photos from my shoots in the near future. One the day I had Marika a makeup artist I had worked with previously come along to offer some help, she did a great job.

Band shoot in Jonkoping, Sweden.

Here we go with my first posted shot; it is one of my favourite shots that I have taken since starting photography. It is a photo of a friend Randy, the image was taken in Jonkoping, Sweden for his band’s CD cover, I will have to try and find their website’s link. I had been living in Jonkoping as my girlfriend was studying at the city’s university at the time.

After following a few blogs I figured it was about time that I began my own, I also have a bit of spare time now there is no excuse not to begin! I guess it might be a nice way to keep a diary of my work and might be interesting for anyone who has the time to visit and take a look. I will try to upload a new photo of mine each day along with a little information explaining the shot and any photoshopping or processing that went into it. Until the next update!
