Dipping my toe

Leave a reply

Funny isn’t it? I never expected to make the jump into YouTube and yet, here we are.

After writing my last post on Light Painting, I found that I really enjoyed sharing what little knowledge I have with you. When I was starting out as a CG artist, I used to write tutorials, and I loved it. This mini, let’s call it an “explanation” of a photographic technique took me back to that.

Words aren’t always the most effective way of showing you how to do something, especially when they are sprawled out in printed form across a screen. Hence the natural jump onto YouTube. And here it is, enjoy…like…comment…subscribe…you know how it goes.

What can you expect from me going forward? Well, to be frank, not much. This is new to me, it requires enormous amounts of conscious thought to do. I have about 9 videos that I would like to make but don’t hold your breath. However you can subscribe to my channel here if you so desire.

If I do finally pull my finger (tripod, microphone, lights and camera) out then there are some areas that I would like to cover. I’d like to show retouching tips and tricks. Different photography techniques including lighting techniques. Possibly gear reviews, this is actually something that I used to do. I may occasionally try and make some travel videos too. But my initial plan was, is to show you what goes on behind the scenes at a shoot and through the editing side of things.

My thinking about this whole thing is that I am currently dipping my toe into it. I don’t want to buy any new gear for it yet but if it does start take off, then I will try and focus more time, money and energy into it.

Let me know what you thought, I’d genuinely love to hear what you have to say.

Drift Allstars: Setting the scene

Leave a reply

Drift Allstars has FINALLY returned to London and this time the setting was the iconic Olympic stadium in Stratford. I for one was positively shaking with anticipation at what would be unleashed this weekend and it looks like I wasn’t the only one. The excitement in the air was thicker than the tyre smoke. Well almost, some of the drivers were reducing visibility down to a few meters. And more than likely shaving a few years off of life expectancy due to smoke inhalation. Did anyone mind? No! If anything it only amped the crowd up more! This time the paddock was restricted access only mean that spectators were straining to get a glimpse of the favourite drifters, during the event people were clambering on any obstacle to gain an elevation advantage over the deep crowds stacked against metal railings. The pressure was momentarily released when punters were allowed in for the drivers signing session and to get up close the weapons on display. Then nerves were once again fraught as the Top 16 battles began. I will leave the report for you to find over on Drift Allstars but it had to be one of the strangest finishes I have ever seen in drifting but congratulations to Piotr Wiecek who drove PHENOMENALLY all weekend!
