R.I.P. Amanda Sheputis
You ever have a feeling that something isn't quite right when you wake up. On my birthday I had that feeling. I thought I should be happy for the most part and I was but not as excited. I went to work and did my usual thing.  After work, I went out and hone...

Ok, so here is my two cents on the Beyonce shoot. I'm seeing opinions range from it looks tacky to being unique. Some people are criticizing the photographer and his vision. In my opinion about photography and why I enjoy it is because there isn't a right or wrong way to YOUR vision. People can have an opinion about your work, but overall as long as YOU and your client are pleased with the work, that is all that matters.

The beauty of Photography is that you can choose your own path. You want to be strict and follow the guidelines? Do it. You want to be adventurous and try something different? Do it. As long as in the end you are doing YOU.

Furthermore, after reviewing this photographer's body of work, this isn't the first time for him to express his way in this fashion. In fact, this looks like his "stamp" for his work. So regardless of how you think about it. He wins BIG because,

A) He is working with Beyonce
B) He is bringing HIS vision
C) regardless of how you think about it, you are talking about his work, which translates into more work for him in the long run.

Also keep in mind, Beyonce doesn't follow trends. So in all honestly something like this makes absolute sense to me for her to do. Because guess what? Whether you like it or not, You are still talking about it. Which is free advertisement for her in the long run. So go run and buy you some fake ass flowers from Walmart and get those creative juices going. lolol

With me constantly learning about photography, if there is one thing I have learned is dare to be different. My biggest hangup is still trying to figure out other people's styles and sometimes wanting to duplicate. I'm trying to break out that mentality and trying to learn what works for ME.

So to Awol Erizku I say kudos. People might like your work, other people might not. But overall, they are talking about it.

In the words of Beyonce,
Always stay gracious, best revenge is your paper.

2017 - What will this year bring?
Happy belated New Years to you all. 2016 will be remembered in epic proportions for many reasons. A lot more bad than good in my humble opinion, which weighs a lot for me. This year I have things on my mind that I want to tackle. I don't want to call them r...

Trying something a lil bit different
Back on the 10th, I decided to do something that I had not done since high school. Get some color in my hair. Now for some people they might think what is the big deal. So what? Well for me it's pretty big since I'm usually somewhat conservative when it com...
