I hope you've been having a good year so far, both professionally and personally. I haven't posted here in a little while but I've been busy these past few months working on a few personal things. As I mentioned last year, I've started experimenting with making video. I've been learning this new craft as a fun side project whenever I can. Admittedly it's a learning curve for me but I must confess that I'm enjoying it very much. If you've done some video, or just started, let me know what your biggest challenges are/were. I've uploaded a few of my attempts to my YouTube channel, "Nicky Highlander Photography". If you have any ideas, suggestions, want to collaborate or just want to discuss photography/videography, feel free to message me!
Here is the link to my channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9qeA1l42xbNfch6NOgLqtQ . I’ve included the link to my latest practice video, “Wind”, at the end of this post. You will see more of these from time to time.
I've also been making it to a few field trips with the Barbados Photographic Society as well as a few other places with friends. So far, I've been exploring the northern and eastern parts of the island again. We've been to Saint Peter, St. Nicolas Abbey's Heritage Train ride and Andromeda Gardens. Funny enough, video has really reawakened my love for still photography. That seems counter-intuitive but it's true.
Here's to more enriching projects this year!
