Today in class my group of aspiring young photographers, videographers and I researched a photo/portfolio sharing website called One Eyeland (oneeyeland.com.)
From our research we gathered that the website itself could definitely use a nice make-over as it is pretty bland and boring to look at, however the quality of the work is outstanding. With 50,000+ active members there is always someone on to see your photo. One of the main downfalls is that you can only upload five pictures a day with a free account, but hey it’s better than one!
More specifically we researched three different photographers on this website: Hartono Hosea, Jasna Boudard and Todd Antony. The person I mainly focused on was Todd Antony, and wow! All I can say is this is a unique photographer!…Well I guess I have plenty more to say as I can’t end the blog post right now can I?
Todd is obviously a wiz with using photoshop as most of his pictures are incredibly stunning yet seem to be mainly artificial. He seems to be extremely varied in his techniques, and he uses plenty of different subjects, spanning from an elderly cheerleading squad, to a Ferrari or Mercedes Benz, soccer players, and some of the craziest landscape shots I’ve ever seen!
Here’s a link to Todd’s One Eyeland portfolio so you can take a look at some more of his work!
It’s hard to say exactly what style of photographer Todd is because he can take, and is so good at taking, such a wide range of photos.
Todd definitely doesn’t like to stick with the same style for too long, which to me seems to be a really good way to stay interested and get educated in as many kinds of photography as possible.
So I guess I would say Todd’s style is a go with the flow kinda style, doing whatever he wants, when he wants.
If it makes for this good of pictures, it’s definitely a style I can see myself using in my own career.
