Flirting with #Photography

They often say that “one picture is worth a thousand words”; and on that note, I bought a camera. A Canon 1100D, I fell in love with it from the moment I got it out of the box. Even though most of my experience with photography is in front of the camera and not behind it, I was still very excited to start taking pictures myself.

I’ve always loved photographs. To capture a moment, to be able to record a memory for an eternity. I’ve seen a lot of people work with cameras so I sort of have a general knowledge of how they work, but the details are mine to figure out. I’ve already been taking a lot of pictures, and capturing something beautiful is easier than I thought.
Below you’ll find some pictures that I’ve been taking since I got the camera. Please let me know what you think. If you have some tips or comments about things that I could do better PLEASE let me know, I really want to improve my picture taking technique.
(If you want to use any of the photographs please let me know first by commenting on this post)

SHORT REVIEW: The National Theatre’s Othello (Live from London) #NTOthello

26/09 – 20.00pm:
I’m in a comfortable chair sitting in a Pathé theatre in The Hague (Holland) about to watch the premier of The National Theatre’s Othello LIVE from London. I don’t yet know what to expect. Remakes of Shakespeare plays can be absolutely amazing, or absolutely not.
The show starts, I was surprised to see subtitles on the bottom of the screen but it was a happy surprise. From the first moment on, everything was right. The interpretation of the characters, the acting, the music, the setting, the stage, the humor, everything.
Rory Kinnear did an absolutely amazing job portraying Iago. His performance was spot on because from the moment Iago started planning his frame-up I did not like him.
Adrian Lester did amazingly as well. Lester has a really calm but assertive way of acting, he just pulls you into the story. His performance of Othello and his undergoing was breathtaking.

I would gladly go to the theatre tonight and watch it all over again.
Congratulations to all the cast and crew, I really enjoyed the rendition of Othello and I recommend it too all theatre and Shakespeare lovers.
