epicwelshman.com is a daily photoblog featuring images from wherever I may be at the time, usually between eastern Canada and the Bahamas. It was started in September 2006, and is powered by PixelPost.
Technical details for each photo appear under each daily entry.
I was born in Cardiff, Wales, and moved to the Bahamas when I was 12 years old. I attended Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick, where for the 2006-2007 academic year I worked as the photography editor for The Argosy, the Mount Allison campus newspaper. After earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature and Philosophy I spent some time visiting friends and family in England and Canada, before moving home to the Bahamas in January 2008. I am engaged to a wonderful girl, Iona MacDonald, and we hope to marry next year.
I love comments. Positive feedback is always gratifying, but constructive criticism is particularly appreciated. Preference is in essence personal and varying, and in art it can be even more illusive. What I may find appealing may be to you stark, busy, overly sharp, or dull and lacking. I want to know. Welcome to my site.
I digitially edit my photos. Some are edited extensively, some are edited very little. It all depends on how I feel the photo should look. That being said, not all of my photos are meant to necessarily capture reality. Sometimes I decide the mood of a photo or how I want the scene to look in my mind to be more important than realism. I believe that photography is an art form and should be open to interpretation, aside from in the news media where unaltered, unbiased images are essential in portraying the truth of a situation.
