Day #2215Title: Catch The Pearl
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: Last Tuesday, I attended the first of four weekly workshops at GNPC to develop the Creative & Artistic Photographer. We are starting out by studying some art history and historical photographers. Each of us was given a different artist and photographer to go away an do a little bit of research on for our homework. Mine was a contemporary artist I have admired for many years, Roger Dean, who is best known for his album cover artwork for bands such as Yes and Asia throughout the 1970’s, 80’s and 90’s. My favourite work of his is from Asia‘s eponymous 1982 album, featuring a dragon rearing up out of the waves to catch a pearl. For my 21st birthday, my Mum commissioned one of her friends to make a full size 3D embroidery version of the cover which has hung on my wall ever since. Seeing as I was writing up my homework today, I thought this would make an appropriate image for the day. To be honest, I’m a little surprised it’s taken me 2215 days to get around to taking its picture!

  • […] Title: Not For The Passport Location: At home Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM Strobist: 1 x YN560 from tight front LHS and RHS, through softbox @ 1/16 Notes: I need to renew my passport, so today I went to the Post Office to pick up an application form. Of course, I’ll need a new photo to go in it, so I made an attempt at taking some when I got home. They are all an improvement over the existing picture (which makes me look like a serial killer), but sadly I don’t think any will pass muster for the passport. I guess I’ll just have to get a professional to take a proper picture of me! Today’s PAD: Day #2215 […]
