"James Nel - the world through my eyes" jhnel's Profile

capturing the moment...

I am a minimalist and believe that “Less is More”. In photography, the challenge for me lies in capturing images with the least amount of photographic equipment.
I use a compact point-and-shoot camera, with one Leica lens only.
No additional lenses, extra lighting or filters. I get by even without a tripod.
In short: only a basic camera with a memory card and a huge amount of passion for photography & travel.
I hardly do any post processing and do not us Photoshop. I might only crop and/or straighten an image if absolutely necessary.
I believe that “If you cannot capture the image the way it presents itself at the time, leave it for somebody else to capture, and move on”.
