It’s still freezing cold here that talking about more snow is the last thing you want to do. Until you see some pretty amazing photos that make you think “Gasp, wowww”. So I am showcasing yet another person’s work that I’m rather jealous of. His name is Ta-Wing Poon and all the photos shown here are his.
Now I am a huge Canon lover. In fact, all the cameras I have ever owned (both film and digital) are made by Canon. Ta-Wing here uses the Nikon D90. This makes us sworn enemies and we will never get along. But in the interest of art and photography, I shall put our differences aside. For now.
First up, we’ll start with some seemingly lost and wandering sheep.
Then a gorgeous river dotted with ice.
Now for my favourite. Killer icicles. I like the composition in this one.
And finally, the photographer himself. The photo is taken by Hao Chen, whom I have previously showcased.
That is one mighty high Taekwondo kick. I think I’m going to keep all comments about Nikon to myself now.
Now for the Photographer’s Snippet. A chance to delve into how their mind works in creating great photos.
“I care too much about the technical details such as the exposure, ISO and shutter speed. After I have these settings in place, I think about the composition. As much as possible, I follow the Rule of Thirds. I took up photography almost two years ago because I wanted to be able to use a DSLR well to photograph my kids when they are born. And of course, I think the Nikon D90 is a great camera.” ~Ta-Wing Poon
If you just read that and thought ‘Whaaaaat?’, don’t worry you’re not the only one. All the talk about apertures, ISO, shutter speed etc. may be mind-blowing at first but it’s not as complicated as it sounds. I will hopefully write about that some other time. Though it does make sense to get the technical side out of the way to then focus on the creative.
But for now, I leave you with this wonderful winter showcase by Ta-Wing Poon.
