Wanted to share some shots that i took when i was in Lviv, Ukraine during Euro 2012. I got my dslr a couple of weeks before i took these shots , so was't entirely familiar with the settings yet so forgive if they are a little rough around the edges. Will try to do more portraits, really need some more practice in that respect. I really like how black and white gives a whole different feel to an image and makes things really stand out, well okay sometimes it does, not always.

Took these shots last week. Woke up around 5am in the morning and couldn't really get back to sleep so i decided to head to the coast to do some beach shots ,well it was something i wanted to do for sometime already but never really got to it. So in the end , i managed to drive down and found a pretty sweet spot where there are less people around and plenty of space for me to move around to get a satisfying composition and not look like some weirdo. Anyway seems like things turned out quite well.

Took these a couple of weeks ago, when i was out with a couple of friends visiting the new gardens by the bay that opened this year. Quite an impressive feat of architecture and engineering and absolutely beautiful at night when the lights are on. First time playing with long shutter speeds and small apertures so didn't really know what to expect, but i guess things turned out not too shabby.

Big things have small beginnings..well that's what they say

Ever since i bought my first Dslr (Nikon D3200) and started getting interested in photography a couple of months ago, i always wanted a place where i could showcase some of my work. Well at least those that i think are presentable enough. Tried instagram, but it quickly ended up as a collection of random photos of friends ,food and other things. Flickr was not a bad idea i thought , until they decided to charge people to upgrade to their pro accounts. So i decided to just start this simple blog and just post photography related content on here. It wont be an insight to my day to day life and what i am having for my meals and what i am feeling or doing at 4 am in the morning ,but just the pictures of my photographic journey and anything i feel that is related to my little blossoming hobby of photography.

Most of my photos can be found at my flickr account http://www.flickr.com/photos/grievor/
