This was my second shoot since I copped the 50mm. Why do I state this? As mentioned in Castlefield Rowan, in the short time that I’ve been shootin’, my shots and edits have improved – so this is one of my earlier creations. I’m really enjoyin’ this foray into photography. There’s somethin’ fulfillin’ about shootin’ subjects – animate or otherwise. The subject in question here, Joe, is a dope creative in his own right shootin’ both images ‘n’ video. But we’ll get in to that in to that. Today I present to you: Demz Visuals: JS Visuals.
Let me fill you in on a little secret. My geography is woeful. And I mean woeful. I traverse the same streets on a regular basis takin’ the same routes whilst not payin’ attention to street names. Most of us probably do. However, if someone was to ask me how to get somewhere, automatically, my brain goes into ‘cease’ mode. It’s a little funny truth be told. Why am I mentionin’ this here? The location of this shoot has somehow eluded me for a while. Each day when I’m en route to the office, I go by on the train. I’ve been here before. I know how to get there. Or so I thought a few months back when I went with my cousin to shoot, somehow couldn’t figure out how to get to it by foot rather than goin’ by on a train ‘n’ ended up shootin’ elsewhere. So you can imagine my joy as I found it on my excursion over a week ago. Today I present to you: Demz Visuals: Andronic.
After I uploaded the images from the Dyno shoot ‘n’ made a bite-sized blog post, I asked myself one simple question: “Why don’t you just upload the images from each shoot to your blog rather than solely Insta?”. When I initially created this space separate from IBTC, it was intended as a platform to showcase all things Demz. As per the ‘bio’ on my page, I’m a man of simplicity – there’s only a handful of things that intrigue me enough to commit to on a somewhat regular basis. As per the #OperationIdris posts, I enjoy liftin’ weights. As per my sporadic trysts with music, I enjoy writin’ ‘n’ recordin’ music – that relationship status is currently set to ‘it’s complicated’. ‘N’ finally, as per my “you’re never too old to learn somethin’ new” post, I enjoy capturin’ images. I find it dope. So, in the aim of providin’ quality content on a more consistent basis, today I present to you, Demz Visuals: Platt Fields Rose.
At the point of writin’ this (22.08.19 @ 7:27pm), the decision to set up a photography Insta is probably about an hour into it’s new life. Upon speakin’ to a close one, the realisation was made abundantly clear, set somethin’ up seperate from my other projects to showcase multiple skill-sets. And I agree. As mentioned last week, “you’re never too old to learn somethin new”. I can’t stress this enough. I already mention the reasons for gettin’ back into photography last week so I shan’t bore you with repetition. Instead… lend me your attention for a few minutes ‘n’ let’s touch on somethin’ new. We won’t be here long.
This may be a quick one still. Who knows. I’ve got a Chet Baker playlist runnin’ thru the Beats whilst typin’. Actually we ain’t got time to be here all night. It’s been a long day, followed by a half-hearted gym session – (it happens), ‘n’ now my food is gettin’ cold downstairs. So let’s jump straight in.
For those that read last month’s entry, welcome back. For those that are new to #OperationIdris, welcome. You can check out the previous entries here. Last month’s entry I alluded to a situation where in frustration, an innocent bollard had the misfortune of meetin’ my already injured right leg. What’s the relevance you enquire? The injury meant I was bed-bound the first week of July, thus endin’ my perfect record of trainin’ every week since the Operation’s inception. Not. Impressed. One. Bit. That being said, the show must go on. I’ve just surpassed the half-way point in the year ‘n’ I’m still goin’ strong. Half full Demz. Half full. This month, I introduce to you: #OperationIdris – Month 7.
For those that read last month’s entry, welcome back. For those that are new to #OperationIdris, welcome. You can check out the previous entries here. After the shocker that was May, I had to come with some serious precipitation. Sh*t had to be as cold as a mid-mornin’ mist that came back with a bang… I know you caught that one! I always find a way to flex lyrical even when I’m talkin’ about the physical. Though there were some erm.. glitches, in comparison to May, June was a stellar month. This month, I introduce to you: #OperationIdris – Month 6.
