Embrace your shadows. I’ve been doing a lot of photography research lately and I stumbled upon a great video talking about embracing shadows in photography and how that can be relatable to life. Growing during your darker times that WE ALL experience make for a richer story. If you can’t embrace the darkness then sometimes you completely blow out the highlights. 🤔 it’s beautiful in my mind.
This shot was taken at Aaron’s Point or Ty Cliff, depending on who you ask. ;) He was here first, but I was here more times. Who wins, Instagram? 🤷♂️😆
Kidding aside, this is one of my favorite spots overlooking the trekking town of El Chaltén 🇦🇷, and required a quick hour-long vertical hike followed by some scrambling.
In 13 days at El Chaltén, I climbed up here 4 times, and was determined to spend my last sunset at this spot.
It saddens me to hear that Adia, the lioness at the @woodlandparkzoo has passed away. Photographing her and Xerxes was always one of my favorite parts of visiting the zoo. I'll be sharing more of my photos of Adia soon. This one was taken in April.
Changing my physical environment from UK to Bali had the single biggest positive impact on my working life last year. However, I brought the same social & money mindset with me when It came to people & companies I chose to work with, part necessity as a newbie & part lifetime conditioning. I now place the greatest significance on being diligent in who I work with and whether their values align with mine (I basically chased the highest pay check with no consideration as to whether the client had a high tendency of being a dick, which in turn made me one).

It doesn’t really feel like ‘work’ when you check in on your mindset & the people you roll with 📸 @rolldrone@iamjoelbrown
Xijiang Miao Village, This village is located by the valley and surrounded by overlapping mountains and continuous row of houses spreads in line of the hilly area. These houses are unique and grand under sunshine and verdant trees. @Sonyalpha
To provide a simple definition, a JPEG file is « one » interpretation of the RAW file. The RAW contains all the information of the picture, and then the JPEG is a template of settings as low light, contrast, sharpness, etc that is applied to the file and then exported. The result is a picture that has fixed settings that you can’t really change.
By keeping the RAW file over the JPEG, you keep FULL control over those settings and can modify your picture in post processing as much as you want. This is why I recommend using RAW file if you want to become a better photographer, the post processing is one of the strongest power you can have to improve your already amazing composition skills.
The best software for post processing for me is Lightroom, and costs 20€ a month.
