I’ve taken hundreds of photos over the years in Korea. I’ve noticed my style and ability to frame better pictures improve, and especially I’ve noticed that I take more better pictures (yes I know this is a matter of opinion).
I’ve always found Korea a fantastic and exciting location to photograph. There’s so much to see and it’s always changing, and while many parts of the cities and even countryside may not be aesthetically beautiful, there’s so much that can be done photographically. Over the past year I’ve increasingly found myself taking pictures of urban spaces, but before it was different. These photos mostly deal with the countryside and nature, with the occasional city shot. Maybe that’s because that’s what I thought photography was all about.
Since I came back to Korea in 2010 I’ve had this blog and I’ve shared many of my recent photographs as I take them. Before I left in 2008, I think that myself and Herself went everywhere in Korea, and sometimes to the same place twice. I think I always had my camera with me. I had a rummage through my old folders of photographs and pulled out some of the better ones. As I said, my ability to take more better quality pictures has improved, so it was hard to find some which I thought were good enough.
I’d like the to give a special shout out of thanks to the photographers whose photographs I’ve been enjoying which have allowed me to develop my present style. Notably in Korea, The Bobster and Liz Groeschen at Seoul Suburban.
I hope you enjoy these. I’ve tried to caption them with a location where possible. If you would like to know more about any of these photographs, please leave a comment below.
