lupideloop – Photographer – YouPic

lupideloop is sharing some inspiration on YouPic. One may say that photography as an art is to be used to pass on a message. Through one’s image this message must be transmitted to the viewers while transporting the person along a journey of discovery as their eyes roam. I see photography as a means of capturing a moment in time, an instance that otherwise would be lost for ever. While the essence of the image is determined by the subjects making up the image, the feel and the mood of this is what a photographer may influence through his choice of composition and processing.

About a month and a half ago I discovered, through a recommendation on Facebook by an acquaintance, Youpic.com (a website which offers photographers of all levels an opportunity to upload their work and receive like, repics and comments from others on the site).

Within a week I had received a number of “starred” nominations which put those particular images on the prestigious Inspiration Flow. The website has an interesting format for recommending, commenting liking and interacting with other photographers and their work.

I suggest you give it a once over. You might be hooked – like I have become. 🙂
