This afternoon I spontaneously decided to go shoot since it was so warm out. I had no ideas really, I just knew roughly where I was going. I wasn’t even planning on shooting a self-portrait, and then this happened. It took more than a few hours to edit (by far the most I have spent editing in ages) and is around 6 images combined.
It also sparked an idea for a new series that I am pretty excited about. Hopefully I will be able to get shooting for that soonish.
After being in such a stunning place for the past few days, I was struggling with motivation for today’s 366 now that I am back in Kansas. I got this in my head and decided to go with it, and it ended up turning out much, much better than I had hoped.
And I am all caught up now, which I was not expecting to happen today!
I wasn’t free from everything until fairly late, and so was stuck with shooting in the dark as a result. I originally just wanted to see how my holga lens reacted to long exposures, but decided to switch over to my standard 50mm for some as well. I just started messing around with flashlights, and of course my cat got curious and had to get involved.
I completely forgot to take a picture today until well after dark. We had just finished adding on this front patio to my parents’ house, and so I thought it might make for a nice photograph. I didn’t think of adding myself in until I started shooting.
I have had this idea in my head for quite a while, and finally got around to it.
I seem to be stuck on flames at the moment for some reason. I really want to incorporate these into a self-portrait at some point, but I’m not quite sure how yet.
