The Art of Blur:

Long exposure

When we see things differently, it naturally fascinates us and that’s a significant factor in creating a compelling image.

Into the Shadows:

However, the play between light and dark and the contrast between different shades of light has a significant impact on composition. Knowing how to work with these elements can produce spectacular photos.

However, street photography will teach you how to react quickly while thoughtfully and creatively composing a photograph. Truly one of the most rewarding forms of photography.

Urban landscapes

When you hear the word landscape your mind will most likely conjure up images of lush valleys or looming mountains. The natural world can be a place of staggering beauty.

However, buildings of concrete and steel can be equally glamorous and interesting. Cityscape photography holds exciting and adventurous possibilities.
