I’d never come across his name or local Durban work before. Seems I had been missing out.
He showed me some of the lengths he goes to… to get “that” shot. A mix of 3/4 submerged in water, up on & in a camouflaged ladder / platform hut and so on. It made my standing in knee deep seaside waves look easy.
Also find Ryan on Instagram.
During our chat we spoke about getting the “one” shot, layers in Photoshop, blending and beautiful landscape opportunities in Durban.
Friday morning was perhaps a good example of my standard modus-operandi.
I like to find my “one shot” when I get home. Therefore, on Friday I shot 258 RAW files (one below and one posted yesterday). The rest of the files will be now placed in storage. They’re not bad shots but on this occasion only two “caught” my eye at home.
Everyone has their own way of doing things and that’s good. Ask Ken Payton.
Well, it’s now time to go shower and get amped up for EFC 60: Lino vs Trosee 2 later today. I’m there to support chaps I’ve photographed: Warren Richards and Dansheel Moodley. Also Amanda Lino who I hope to photograph one day.
