T h e A l p h a


OK since this is my very first post, i decided that it seemed ideal to start with a post about my
favorite photographer. He has inspired me greatly for the past few years and i have been
following his work since hi
s recent rise in the world of photography. This of course is
Akif Hakan Celebi.

When i first come upon his work i was blown away, his images are just full of different emotions
and his work in general can be explained as fashion expressionism. His documentary-style
fashion images have an almost 'Lomography' like quality to them, a dream light effect.

never uses studio flash. to me this is incredible and is something that i would love to master, the
art of creativity with ambient light.

If you do not already know about this photographer, i urge you to go and check out his body of

For the first part of the year, i am going to try to use more ambient lighting within my shots as i
feel i would love to master this technique.
Whether or not it will work?...i'll keep you posted ;)
