I always believe in having a camera ready to react to any quick opportunity taking a great photograph. I believe this was one of those moments, when our cat was just going through a cleaning routine on the sofa. I just finished a shoot 20 minutes before and still had all the lights set up. I hope you enjoy….
I have decided to participate in this years Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize 2010. The image below is my submission, which got into the second selection for the exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery, London.
The image title is: Tamara, a pefume addict. This image belongs to a series, which will hopefully be exhibited soon. I will keep you updated.
I decided to experiment a bit more with infrared photography and have taken this shot in Clapham Common Park in London today. I have used a long exposure of around 5 minutes to capture this shot. Since the sun was not too strong at the time, the photograph has some extra noise, but I think it just adds to the character of the image.
I went to the World Naked Bike Ride 2010 in London and Brighton again to take some photographs. Every year in cities around the world people ride bikes naked to celebrate cycling and the human body. The ride demonstrates the vulnerability of cyclists on the road and is a protest against car culture. I have uploaded some galleries on www.bikewars.co.uk
Below is on of the images from the London ride.
Due to the second volcanic ash cloud, coming as a result of the eruption of Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano, our return flights from Lanzarote have been delayed by seven days. This gave me more opportunity to take photographs, including shots from a nightdive and some exciting kite-surf stunts.
I love freediving and Lanzarote offers a lot of different places to explore the underwater world where you can find school of small to large fish, Angel Sharks, Stingrays, TriggerFish, Sepia and more.
One amazing location for freediving is a spot between Puerto del Carmen and Porto Calero. If you swim about 70 meters off shore, you can view 2 wrecks in around 20 meters depth. I have managed to take a panorama of both of these, which I will include in my Lanzarote Gallery.
