Flickr a Week 42a: ‘Style Icon’

There is “no cuter bird than a puffin”, says Rob Oo, who captured self-titled “Style Icon” in Vestur-Bardastrandarsysla, Iceland, on July 21, 2018, using Pentax K-S2. Vitals: f/8, ISO 1600, 1/350 sec, 250mm. The bird portrait takes the Sunday spot for bokeh, clarity, color, composition, and creamy grain that adds a dash of artistic authenticity.

“A camera helps me to be a different observer”, Rob says of his shooting style. “I try to photograph how I see, less what I see. I am looking for depth in images. My main focus areas are landscapes and architecture”. He joined Flickr in October 2013 and remains a committed, active member seven years later.
