“Look to camera…”

I love this monster portrait by Theo Moye. This beetle would make a great fantasy portrait – I want to sit a warrior child on it’s back, riding to victory through this alien landscape. I’m sure that’s not what he had in mind when he beautifully captured this world we never see. Two more great shots below. You can see more from him at http://www.theomoye.co.uk/

Thanks for being there for me

Do you know 500px.com? Based in Canada but powered by creative people worldwide, 500px is a photo community for discovering, sharing, buying and selling inspiring photography. I joined recently and I’m loving the updates on ISO, their blog. Last week I was rewarded with this beauty!

Now you know I love a sky, but isn’t this amazing! It’s by weather and environment photographer, Kelly DeLay. I’d like to thank him for being there and capturing this. And 500px too because without them, I wouldn’t have known about Kelly and his amazing work.

I love this sliced panarama by Steve Orino. I can’t do it justice on this tiny page but if you click on the image, you can see it a bit better in a new window. I also couldn’t resist these two below. Find out more about Steve and his work through his website and instagram.

Photo of the week this week comes from Paul Holloway. I love the colours and textures he’s captured in this corrugated metal to make an abstract print.

I’m going to share some of his other work too. The lovely double-exposures below create wonderful juxtapositions and are some of my favourites.

I had an email this week from theprintspace about the Sony World Photography Awards 2016 (links below).

The awards include different competitions for Professionals, Students (studying photography), Youth (age 12-19) and an Open competition – with 10 categories judged on a single image, open to all.

If this image by Adrian Jaszczak is the quality we can expect, I can’t wait. Unfortunately, I’ll have to as the results aren’t due until April 2016.
