I’m working on a new music video to help support “Stand up to cancer“.
The song named “Jenny make ’em clap” is a fun love letter to Venice, California and free spirits everywhere, and is a part of the “If we live” project.
We have only one more shooting day to complete the remaining shots and then finish editing, I’m very exited.
All of the participants in this project volunteer their time and talent with the hope of helping others.
Until the video’s release, here’s a behind the scenes video, Shot by Mungai Nguku
Lyrics & Vocals: Jenny Moller
Bass: Karl Leiker
Percussion: Al Keith; James Alibe;
Production, Guitar, bgd vocals and keys: Kevin T. Williams

Creativity and creative thinking is a subject I’m always exploring.
I was happy to hear Cleese mentioning Edward de Bono (in one of his creativity thinking videos that was published and removed from youtube many times) , I began to find interest in De Bono’s writings about creative thinking when I was still a photographer’s assistant in training.

I like Instagram. I think it sends me back to the days I was listening to records, holding these colorful album covers and admiring the artwork, these covers allured me into the field of commercial photography. As much, it reminds me using Hasselblad cameras, that square window to the world that looking through it, made everything look beautiful.
Today, I don’t really need the camera to have a square frame, I crop to measure and it’s all good, I still use 1:1 frames when I see fit, but since the music business changed a lot, the commercial use of a square frame became more rare, until Instagram came and gave it a renewed breath of life.
Growing up into being a professional photographer, I trained myself to capture interesting frames, I could see them all around me, and went through many (many!) rolls of film, until I developed the “eye” for a good composition, slowly assembling a worthy portfolio, I wish I had Instagram back then…
Not many professionals are as “obsessed” about their work, enough to practice it in their free time, I can’t think of an accountant making calculations for fun, or a farmer plowing a field just because he likes it.
When you’re a photographer, that’s a different deal, at least for me, I just can’t help it, I need to be ready to click at all times.
I used to carry a compact camera with me wherever I went, when I found anything frame worthy, I’d snap it.
When Nokia came out with their Lumia 920, the platform was ripe enough for me to try, they also promised an excellent camera, promised and delivered.
Soon enough many photography apps became available, allowing some serious ways to manipulate images, many Instagram like apps too, but not THE Instagram, the one many people were on. I started worrying, I got the Lumia 920 for its camera, and I wanted to share it and Instagram wasn’t in site, until a month ago (*Nov. 2013). As soon as it was available I installed it, and it became my new composition playground.
Instagram is extremely limited, almost like a pinhole camera, but that’s why I like it.
I do miss some more options in the app, so I can make some mild adjustments, but, I like it anyhow, I shoot, I post, all done.
Flying above California’s electricity producing windmills makes for great photography opportunities, this is only one of a large series.
