as many of you have probably seen, over the past few weeks I have been constantly engaged in the life-and-death struggle that is the assembly of my final year-portfolio - pretty much  culmination of all of my best pieces that will determine whether or not potential employers will see me as a feasible asset once I have been unceremoniously booted from tertiary education :icondummyplz: ahhhh fun times

It was a major struggle when I first started compiling images, and later on I figured out that it was because of the fact that I was taking images simply for the sake of bulking up my options, instead of creating things that resonated with me personally - it took me a while, but I have since reverted back to my conceptual roots and portfolio has become that much less of a stress factor on my life :faint: it turns out that I've actually passed the minimum amount of required images, so now whatever I shoot is purely to eliminate the weaker pieces

And! As I'm sure most of you have noticed, this has spawned my recent obsession with levitation photographs - a few things on that note:

1. Photoshop is the be all and end all of life itself 
2. The pen tool will be the death of me one day
3. Watch!! Your!! Shadows!! (or you will be sobbing in frustration later)

Now that I think of it, I'd be happy to make a tutorial for those of you interested in making your own levitation images if I get enough feedback for it! Hi

:camera: About the photographer: :camera:

I've had a camera in my hands since I was ten years old, and I've never been able to see myself doing anything else with my life (unless you count my wanting to be a paleontologist when I was seven). My main interests lie in wildlife, documentary and portrait photography. Formally studying my passion full-time has caused me to push the boundaries of the medium itself, and as one of my lecturers so eloquently put it: "If you become comfortable with where you are as a photographer, sell your camera and start doing something else."

:camera: What I do: :camera:

Portraiture (both studio and environmental), documentary and wildlife, as well as beginning to branch into event and fine art photography. In my spare time, I'm an amateur novelist and practice art as a hobby (painting and pen-work mostly). I'm also an avid reader, with more books in my possession than items of furniture and clothing combined.

:camera: Long term goals: :camera:

:bulletred: Branch into professional documentary work
:bulletorange: Travel as part of my career
:bulletyellow: Do work for Time, National Geographic or Getty Images
:bulletgreen: Backpack across the world

:camera: Ultimate dreams: :camera:

:bulletred: Create social awareness through my documentary work
:bulletorange: To have one of my works featured on the covers of Time or National Geographic
