About

Why “Half a photograph”? Because I’m never fully satisfied with the photographs I click. As Imogen Cunningham said — “Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I’m going to take tomorrow.

I have an interest in photography, but I do not fancy carrying around expensive (and expansive) equipment everywhere. I own an old Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28, and enjoy working with it, but I also love clicking pictures on my cell phone. Let’s face it — opportunities for photography are everywhere, and I’ve captured more shots on my cell phone than on my camera. I’m also not ashamed to admit that I love applying Instagram-like effects when I feel they compliment a photograph.

I do believe in technique, but I also believe that photographs are more about how they make someone feel.

This blog is a fun pursuit for me — a record of thoughts associated with my photographs. I’d appreciate it if you’d honor my wish of keeping it award-free.

Hope you enjoy looking around!

  2. I agree when you say (or write?) “…I do believe in technique, but I also believe that photographs are more about how they make someone feel…”. That’s the same for me.
    Keep on shooting (with your camera oe cell phone, of course).

  3. Cool to see like minds, I totally stopped carrying around bulk equipment after my Sony video camera literally flamed out in the middle of shooting a political campaign in 2010 in 108degree Yola temperature, my second pro cam that crapped out in a month. I turned to my iPhone 4 and shot the rest of the campaign including campaign videos with it. Haven’t looked back since, here is one of the videos I shot with the iphone4 http://jujufilms.tv/2013/08/05/nuhu-ribadu-for-igbos/

    • So sorry to hear about those cameras, and wow how hot it must have been! I agree with you about your choice to use your phone finally — so not worth risking the death of another camera…

  4. Despite having bought a DSLR, I always use my panasonic super zoom along with it. Reason? I have learn quite bit using it, zooming in is easy-no change of lenes, it clicks super sharp pictures – most of time you can’t differentiate pictures between both. Best of all? well slips in easy anywhere, no hassles!
    Yes, photography is more about seeing and capturing, your composition matters the most!
