Simon Says -- SimonSawSunlight Photo Technique From time to time its been suggested that RFF have a mentor Photography help section in terms of Technique - how to shoot this or that. 1st of all I had to find someone whose work I really like. 2ndly that photog had to be willing help others. That's the catch: so many excellent photogs just are not wiling to make the time for that, or just as likely, simply don't give a damn about helping others. SimonSawSunlight is an excellent up and coming photog whose work seems to go well beyond his 24 years.

You can view Simon's work at http://www.simonbephotography.com/  and www.facebook.com/simonbphotography Simon has been published in in FAZ (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung), LFI (Leica Fotografie International) and more recently in Radiate Magazine. He also recently had a large solo-exhibition in Berlin. Not too Shabby! So, let us begin this adventure and see where it goes. Thank for taking this on Simon!

scotland, 2013

i am slowly working my way through last year's backlog, and i have put together a little series from my short stay in scotland last august. it is not extremely interesting or good, but what i do find remarkable is that it unwittingly brings forward the deep "stagnation" and lack of control and initiative that i dealt with personally in the last 12 months or so, photographically and in some other respects... inside and outside world informing each other (blablabla), maybe to the viewer's disadvantage, but valid nonetheless.

hey Simon
I do like the work, I saw some last year I think when you first started posting and wondered why you hadn't shown more. To be honest I find what you did from Vancouver or Berlin before to be more interesting.

Are you back in Berlin now or still in Istanbul ?

Love this one - great placing of the 'wee laddie'.

I missed this when you posted it; these are really good. I love Scotland, especially its darkness.
