The digital age is definitely here to stay!
The invention of photography has been traced back to the early 1800 when Thomas Wedgwood made the first known attempt to capture the image in a camera obscura by means of a light-sensitive substance. Since then its only gotten better and easier.
So let me present a scenario: You book for a photo session with your local photographer. A few days to your appointment he calls to inform you about a location for the shoot and also throws in some suggestions for wardrobe. In your minds eye you go ‘but its just an ordinary photo shoot.” But because he’s your friend and you trust him, you sluggishly go with his request.
At the scene, you’re given awkward positions as poses and made to stay still for only God knows how many painful minutes, and God help you that’s the moment when your nostrils begin to tickle and you just cant scratch it. You’re wondering whats going on in his mind and the outcome of your session.
A few days later you get an email from him with your package delivered and the outcome:
You go ballistics in the office, your colleagues run in to check up on you only to see an over grown adult smiling like he’d just been handed a lolly pop! Your photographer made your day, you didn’t expect it. Simply put, ‘He blew your mind away.’
Meet Nigeria’s budding photographer Kureng Dapel of Kureng Workx Photography. He’s taking Composition in photography to another level.
He calls the first the first portrait “Fallen Angel.” It depicts the fall of the first angles banished from heaven who became the curse giants to first roam the surface of the earth.
The second he calls it “Dancing in the rain.” Instead being angry with the heavy down pour, take a minute and soak it in and possibly drop everything and just dance in the rain. When was the last time you did that?
And finally, “The Chronicles of Queen Amina.” The Hausa warrior queen of Zazzau.
