The direction on my photoblog is going to change. I am from now on going to post my test shots on new techniques that I am developing. Up until now I've been posting mostly work that is complete of at least part of my artistic and commercial portfolio.

I think it's fair that I started doing this to keep me shooting and improving on my style. The shots that you may start seeing may not have any sense of appeal to you at first but as time goes on I am hoping you will start to get a flavour for what I am trying to do.

This here is a shot I took sometime ago, I think two years ago of the Alexandra Palace aka "Alley Palley"

Jide Alakija: Not necessarily a new direction, just that I'll be posting some of my experiments more often now.

Nice shot Jide. Particularly like the turquois sky with the turoise trimming on the building. Would like to see this in black & white against the sky/trim.

As you go through your morphosis it would be great for you to share what tecniques you are applying so we can provide you with constructive feedback.

My first visit to Shutterchance since the end of June and I'm reviewing some of my favourite and inspirational posters.

I've just seen the last half dozen or so of yours and I'm happy to see you continue to post some technically brilliant and beautiful work.
Love this
