    Photo 9 the 2016 Collection

    With the coming Pretoria wide-angle photowalk, I thought it would be wise to scout the area and make sure everything was accessible, that there is enough subject matter to shoot and that we can get the sunset!

    It would have been nice to have clouds as clouds make for better sunsets but this image of the monument speaks for itself, I think we are going to have loads of fun.
    I am also practicing my Photoshop skills with a tablet, it is so much easier that a mouse.
    Layering 6 images manually is not the easiest thing in the world though.

    Photo 1 the 2016 Collection

    It has been months since I posted anything, I was working on a large project and it took all my time, working and spare.
    My contract has now ended, the project has a life of its own and I have some time off. Well not quiet that simple as I am looking for the next job now but it is quieter.
    If you are wondering what I was doing go here Minibus taxi industry pilots card payments. My team built the cash to card switch and the Point-of-Sale software on top of the custom built device developed by the company I was working for.
    I am proud of the final package the team put together, it has now taken a life of its own and no longer needs me, my job is done.

    Onto today’s photo, fellow Joburg Photowalker Sandor Oroszi thought it was about time for us to do a Lensbaby photowalk, so we did.
    Next few photos, I will post are going to be Lensbaby or as I call it, the art of purposely degrading a perfectly good sensor…
