This is the first installment of a weekly segment I’ll be covering called Flickr Photostream Friday.
Not all photostreams are created equal. When browsing through millions of users on Flickr, its easy to get lost in a sea of mediocrity, as discussed here. Once a week, I’ll be bringing you the best of the best (according to me) of the photostreams that never get stale.
User Nerboo has been my contact for about a year now, and I’m always enamored with his work. He focuses primarily on self portraiture, with dedicated attention to various 365 projects. Typically, when taking pictures of the same subject every day, for hundreds of days, its easy to lose focus and interest. Its easy to get bored and lose your audience with the same boring shot of your face day in and day out. Not the case here. Nerboo is fully conscious of these pitfalls and stays on course. He manages to hold attention and interest with every single shot. His use of lighting and texture are often flawless and always complementary. Also worth noting is the variation in colors, contrast and framing in each successive picture within his ‘stream. We’ll never see the same background two pictures in a row, nor the same scale or perspective.
Nerboo is a user that has attracted many followers over the years, and because he shoots alot, his work is always getting better. Head on over to and check out his latest here:
