I was just out of Lagos doing a bit of photojournalism, it’s what I do in my spare time. It’s amazing to see the culture and work ethic present in all parts of this country. I’ll be posting some shots soon.
People who know me know that I am not an emotional person. At all. I tend to photograph people, so I try to get emotions out of my subjects. I think a photographers ‘emotions’ do nothing whatsoever to how a picture comes out, However, it is important that you like everything in the process. To get the best out of what you do, you must connect with it. Your lens, Your camera, and most importantly, your subject. I think this connection is more physical than emotional, and it is paramount.
Thank you sir. I like the minimalism on your blog. Keep doing what you’re doing.
An employer once told me that there are two types of workers. Workers who will come across congestion on the way to work, and sit content because have an excuse to be late. Then there are those few who will hop out of their bus, get on a moped, and do everything in their power to make sure they get to work on time, despite their challenges. Those are the ones that get promote. My camera broke four months ago, and despite, I have been able to cover almost ten shoots. Without a camera. Why? because I always found a way around it. Life will always throw challenges at you, but it is how you handle them that will determine how successful you become.
Thank you ma’am, ‘preciate the compliments. Keep following, and stay tuned for more.
Watermarks are disgusting. They take away from the picture and people end up putting too much attention towards who took the photo, and not the photo itself. People have stolen my pictures in the past, but that’s life. People aren’t creative enough to make their own shit so they teal it from other people. Have a good day.
