259/365 - Virginiaaahhh!!! on Flickr.© 2012 Eric Adeleye Photography.
May is my birthday month, so my license expired on my birthday.  Right before my birthday, I attempted to get a new license from the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles, but found out that Virginia had a block on my license from 2004.  I contacted the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles and asked them what the block was about, they wanted me to prove that I had vehicle insurance on my truck in November of 2004 or else I had to pay the fine of $550 to have the block lifted.  My insurance company doesn’t have records that go back that far so I couldn’t prove that I had insurance and ended up having to pay $550.  I’m still mad about having to pay the fine which I thought was unjust which is why I’m yelling about it.  LOL, I could have gotten a new SB-910 flash with that money.

256/365 - And the Winner Is… on Flickr.© 2012 Eric Adeleye Photography.  
This is a photograph of Belle, a pit bull owned by one of my co-workers.  My co-worker won a free photo shoot that I raffled off at the Christmas Party back in 2011.  I was finally able to have the photo session with my colleague and her family, we had a great time.  Belle is a true southern belle and likes my camera.

This is how I see the world as a photographer. I’m constantly looking at everything as a potential photograph. A moment that has been waiting for me to capture it with my camera. Part of the creative process is envisioning the final photograph in your mind before you take the first picture.

217/365 - Where Does the Water Go? on Flickr.© 2012 Eric Adeleye Photography.
When it rains it pours and the water has to go somewhere.  Storm drains have their purpose in the urban landscape to regulate water, prevent flooding, and feed local ponds that exist in various areas.   
How do you regulate your artistic passions within your life?  Do you challenge yourself on a regular basis?  What personal projects are you working on to continue to hone your skill set as a photographer?  How strong is your network amongst your fellow artists?  How are you allowing the water of creativity to flow within your craft?

172/365 - It Rained on My Proejct 365 on Flickr.© 2012 Eric Adeleye Photography. 
Don’t let the weather stop your Project 365!  HDR processed in Adobe Photoshop CS5 with HDR Efex Pro.  You are late to the game if you are not using Nik Software already.
After jumping around in puddles in the rain to get the shot I wanted, I had to retire my boots to the trash because they were drenched in mud and ready to go on to their new life at the dump.  Do not try this if you have on nice clothes or shoes you want to keep.  Fortunately, I have plenty of boots to spare.  You have to do whatever you have to do to get a decent photograph on a Project 365.  Trust me, the pressure of taking a photograph every day can be consuming at times, but it is all good at the end of the day when you have a new photograph to use.

131/365 - I Found My Missing Bluetooth on Flickr.
© 2012 Eric Adeleye Photography. There goes $100.  My bluetooth headset was MIA for a few days.  I found it one morning outside near the side of my truck, mangled from the tires of my mighty 2000 Ford F-150 truck.  Ford trucks roll strong and my tiny bluetooth never stood a chance.  I really liked this jawbone device, I’ll have to pick up a new one soon. Follow me on Google Plus | Twitter | Facebook | 500px | Tumblr | Website

130/365 - The Barbershop on Flickr.
© 2012 Eric Adeleye Photography. This was an excellent idea that I got from my cousin Dre, who is a barber in Philadelphia, PA (I miss you Philly).  I had been trying to line up this photo shoot for weeks at the Lion’s Den in Wilmington, North Carolina.  I wrapped this photo shoot up in less than 40 minutes.  Everything went well, my SB-700 put in some strong work with my Yongnuo RF-603 triggers and 60” Westscott umbrella.  If you need a haircut in Wilmington, the Lion’s Den is the only place to get trimmed up proper!  Post processing done to the single file using Adobe Camera Raw, Adobe Photoshop CS5, and HDR Efex Pro.  Seriously, I highly recommend you check out Nik Software for Photoshop.

127/365 - Basketball Cards on Flickr.
© 2012 Eric Adeleye Photography. Back in the day I was a big time basketball card collector and huge Charlotte Hornets fan.  I have always enjoyed watching a nice basketball game.  I was able to get a few of my cards autographed by players like Kendall Gill, Muggsy Bogues, Dell Curry, and a few others.  I’ll have to put those cards on display during my Project 365 at a later day.  I never know when I’ll have a rainy day and need a Plan B photograph of something.

123/365 - The Grind Continues… on Flickr.
© 2012 Eric Adeleye Photography.  My journey along the Project 365 has been amazing so far.  It has been stressful at times, but the Project 365 has propelled me into new areas of photography and creativity that I hadn’t ventured into.  If you haven’t done a Project 365, you are truly missing out on a self development project that will make you into a better photographer.  I’m using my camera ever day, non-stop.  My skills in post processing in Adobe Photoshop CS5 are growing.  One of the only ways to improve as a photographer is through the fires of experience.  Get out there and take a photograph today, it doesn’t matter what you shoot, just as long as you do something with your camera.

Brothers Sharing Knowledge on Flickr.
© 2011 Eric Adeleye Photography. The bonds that two brothers share are like no others.  I always enjoy photographing Donte and Keon whenever I can.  I told them to just pretend I wasn’t standing in front of them and I started taking pictures.  I like when people can just be themselves in front of my camera.  Donte (on the left in this photograph) is preparing to take the GRE exam for graduate school.  Keon (on the right in this photograph) finishing up his PHD program at the University of Pennsylvania in Africana Studies.  Both are undergraduate alumni of Wake Forrest University in North Carolina.  Yes, they are identical twins, it took me a while, but I can tell them apart from each other now.

© 2011 Eric Adeleye Photography. It was a pleasure to photograph Keon, Jalen, and Donte again.  They are always down for photographs and this pose jumped right in my head from out of nowhere.  Turned out to be the best idea for a pose all day.  These brothers are closer than close, they are always together.  I’m honored to call them my friends!

083/365 - Paul’s Place, Rocky Point, NC (Circa 2011) on Flickr.
© 2011 Eric Adeleye Photography.  As I was driving home, I rode pass Paul’s Place and saw a bunch of motorcycles.  This is an HDR photograph I processed in Photomatix 4 first, then did some further work to the picture in Adobe Photoshop CS5 and HDR Efex Pro.  I wanted to experiment with the vintage look and this looked like the perfect photograph to try some new things out on.  Paul’s Place is located on U.S. Rout 117 in Rocky Point, NC and has been around since 1928. Follow me on Google Plus | Twitter | Facebook | 500px | Tumblr | Website
