Not shooting as much has me thinking of the exact reason why I started portrait shooting. To show the uniqueness in everyone and I mean that in the least cliche way possible. To explore these awesome places, have such great experiences with people I’ve just met hits me hard. Everyone has a beautiful quality about them and no one can take that away from any of us. My photography isn’t even about the quality of photo anymore, it’s the experience of the day. The quality of that day means the world to me. My point is, at least for me, is that I’m not taking my photography quite seriously as of recently. I just love doing it and experiencing new things, meeting new people etc. Make it your mission to be happy doing things you love and not stressing about things that aren’t meant to be stressed over. I guess the goal of life is going through it the happiest way possible, and I’m realizing what makes me happy and what doesn’t and so much stress has come out of my life. We’re all on this boat together, make the most of it.
I could only stay in the house for so long today. The leaves are starting to change and it’s starting to look more like fall. After a phone interview I had to do for my Journalism class, I texted Sage to see if she wanted to go explore for a little. My phone GPS led us to the wrong location but with light going away fast, we decided to explore the woods around where my phone dropped us off at. Didn’t shoot for very long but made the most out of it. I guess I have to say hello to the day ending at 6 now.
Yeah Yeah I know it’s the same as the previous photo but this is different. With digital cameras, we rarely print out work. The act of touching a photo is going away slowly, and it’s really depressing. Today in my photo class we were practicing printing and seeing my photo and the feeling that I haven’t seen my work printed in a long time really hit hard. Now I really don’t even want to look at it on my computer screen. I’m telling everyone, please print your work.
This one I did about a month ago with one of my friends and it couldn’t of had better. With so many set backs, like the tent guy not arriving so everyone having to walk down the isle in the rain, to losing electricity on the top floor of the venue, it still ended up being a great day.
I’ve been so interested in fashion other than American for awhile now. I’ve been looking more into British and Italian fashion and it’s really been catching my eye. Well my mom won a gift card to Barnes and Noble the other day so we headed there today. My brother got some books and I picked up Italian Vogue. Its like buying a text book, this magazine is huge but I look at it as inspiration, to what I hope to be, a published fashion photographer in a magazine like this. Now I don’t want to get too full of myself because I’m far from that dream but it’s nice to know progress is being made. Always keep your dreams alive.
