Guest Artist – Bernard Chatikobo

I met Bernard this weekend in Durban after he enquired about the use of my sturdy tripod.

We spoke of my love of HDR photography and he told me of his oil pastel paintings.

Bernard sent me photographs of two paintings below and enjoys painting from a printed picture i.e. commission him to paint your family pets. His contact details are shown at the bottom of this post.

Why we love Durban: The Bluff, Durban – 8

It all started with “Why we love Durban: The Bluff -1“.

This is the final post for now – The Bluff 8.

The background:

I woke up shortly before 04:00, made coffee and then Roscoe (the dog) and I left to catch the sunrise at Brighton / Anstey’s Beach, Durban South Africa.

I took 291 bracketed photos on various settings, as I am still trying to get the hang of HDR photography into the sun or at night.

Photomatix worked overtime when I got home as I tried various settings once again.

The photos below, in addition, had a sort of “painting” effect forced on them.

Read all about the oppression, riots and now hope right here.

The old house shown below in “painting” form featured in post 1 and post 2, and is a source of fascination every time I drive past.
