creative digital projects
music | video | design
If you follow me on Instagram
, you know I upload daily, have composed music, make the occasional YouTube video, and design & maintain my own website. All of this creative output is not my day job, and life gets busy sometimes but I try to do as much creating as time and circumstance allows.
I enjoy creating videos, mostly from the images I have taken, and I always include at least a snippet from one of my songs (click the link above to visit my music page). Creating videos is something I’ve been toying with for a few years now, and my goal by the end of the year is to do some truly creative video projects that really push me beyond my comfort zone.
It was important to start separating my photography from my music page (even though I have used, and will continue to use them together) - as a result, I’ve designed these pages specifically to focus on imagery I create. These pages are not limited to just showcasing photographs, but also video creation and any other design work that I do along the way. My Instagram is a good place to revisit for news on my newer projects.
Constantly learning, constantly dabbling. I’ve learned a lot about photography recently and have been practicing a LOT to a point where I am happy with and confident in what I am creating (not quite there just yet). Understanding photographic terminology and techniques has made a huge difference in how I take and edit a photo.
I now exclusively use Affinity Photo (iOS) to edit my photos - basically the Photoshop equivalent for iPad. For video editing, I use LumaFusion (iOS), a very robust app (almost perfect). Affinity Photo and LumaFusion are frequently mentioned together in reviews and tutorials. Graphic for iPad is useful for other design work that I do. And of course, I am always looking for ways to up my web design game.
I hope you like what you see here - as I mentioned, I’m always working on better ways to do every creative thing that I do. I’m contemplating creating some tutorials based on my own creative processes. Interested?
