Life’s a Blur, Live it!

The typical phrase, that gets me going is “get on with it!” which is exactly what I’m going to do from now on. Really, what I’ve been doing is looking at photo’s, thinking should I or shouldn’t I post them; should I or shouldn’t I put them on Flickr, but caution is officially being left in the cold puddle outside, and there it should stand.

If we don’t grab life with both hands, nobody is going to do it for us. Here’s to sharing the good stuff!


A picture I took using a very cool effect where long exposure is used and the camera is rotated while the picture is being taken.

That being said, did I mention that I’m in final year Fine Arts this year? That means I probably won’t be the most reliable blogger and am likely to increase stress-mode and decrease blog-at-leisure mode. Just can’t do it all at once.

But I will try. See the sidebar? that doodle challenge is something that will be carrying on for much of this year, so if you get bored looking at stagnant photo’s, try the doodles. Doodling is like my best friend and something I can do at leisure and in stress mode. It’s my happy place this year:)

Hello all!

It’s official: Flame.Photo.Lens has been born and I hope to learn terabytes of information from other online photographers and people who are interested in the creative world of image-making.

We are all students in this world and no day passes by without opportunities to learn and enrich our lives. The world of the internet is the ideal platform to share ideas and opinions and, above all, learn. The aim of this blog is therefore to learn from others and to teach others what I have learnt, in terms of photography. Various topics surrounding photography will be discussed and I will even share some Adobe Photoshop tutorials, get onto some tricky questions, and endeavor to answer them.

The first Photograph:

It was my birthday, and I had just received my first digital camera from my parents and we had breakfast outside; just the three of us. The flowers were also for my birthday and who could ask for a more beautiful subject to photograph? This was taken in my extremely amateur days (I still consider myself amateur but am learning more and more each day) but I was happy with the result. It captured a beautiful memory and the joy that I felt, receiving my first camera.

Now, years later, I have a more advanced camera, more knowledge, and more memories, but the first camera will not be forgotten. It was an integral part of the journey.

It is only appropriate that this should be the first blog post.
