Welcome to my first blog post!
This will be one of many, where I plan to utilise my journal to convey and discuss my journey within Digital Photography.
Calisthenics is a sport that I really enjoy as it can be independent or collaborative, it also sculpts the body in a proportional muscular order. In other words; it is just street gymnastics.
I went to Kennington Park for a regular training session. I decided to take my camera, as by experience I tend to get the best shots unintentionally. I had the pleasure of seeing a regular face: Roo Hamer, a calisthenics inspiration who I have been meaning to take photos of for a few weeks now. Needless to say, we finally collaborated and I got a lovely shot of him performing a handstand.
Furthermore, Roo introduced me to Emily Cohen, a yoga instructor and nutritional health consultant. An enthusiastic soul who was a pleasure to collaborate with!
The sky was fantastic and as you can see in the photos below, I was able to have a great balance of exposure to bring the attention and focus on the subject.
As a calisthenics enthusiast and a photographer, I have found that merging my two interests together to be a fulfilling experience. I plan and intend to create an epic photo series based purely on this underground street sport that I love.
