Logos, Anyone...?

Sometimes I think the very things that define me are the things that serve to confuse me.

Scientists will say I am Right Brained - uses feelings, "big picture" oriented, imagination rules, symbols and images, present and future, philosophy & religion, can "get it" (i.e. meaning)believes, appreciates spatial perception, knows object function, fantasy based, presents possibilities, impetuous, risk taking... phew!! Thats some serious BS! Simply put am an artist... thats all I know.

Over the past couple of years I have been trying to figure where do I go with my Photography. Perhaps the era of thinking of it as an 'elevated hobby' is slowly coming to an end as I realize am delving deeper in to the science and business of it. Graphic design has been my bread and butter for a few good years. It comes naturally... yet I truly despise it.

I am working on my aspirations for 2010, all about growth and more redefining. Lets see where this rabbit hole goes... Below are just a few logos I have created over the past 10 years, for personal clients as well as with an ad agency. These were done using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, and even by hand.

2 Wheels, 1 Love...

I have passed by Yanic's workshop a few times before, and was drawn by the MotorCross action posters he has on the walls. I stopped to ask about possible dirt track locations as I have been seriously thinking about exploring some photography in that field. I ended up taking his picture and a first lesson in the Theory of Bike Riding. I later went to Barnes & Noble and found the November 2009 issue of Digital Camera World featuring... guess what? see for yourself... especially on page 20!!

Tech info:
 The photos were shot with a 45 Watt A/C flash at front, with the SB-800 at in the ceiling at the back fitted with an orange gel, both triggered by PWs. Camera, Nikon D300, with Sigma 24 - 70mm f/2.8 lens @ f/4, shutter 1/250, ISO200...
