Wednesday, come at me.
I promised a few more images from my recent photo session, and here they are. I hope you enjoy.
I wanted to do something completely different, and focus on the textures of nature. It was such a thrill getting close up shots of things close to the ground, or high above. Thankfully the sun was supplying a plentiful amount of light and warmth, so it was quite a pleasant evening.
At one point, in the midst of taking a picture of the tree trunk (which is the featured image), I turned to my mother and simply said ‘You’ve now taught me to always look up’. In a post I shared recently, I discussed my Mother encouraging me to try new things, and just look up and aim my camera at what lies above. And now I’ve kept that advice with me. I suppose it’s also quite metaphorical, in ways. But can be especially applied to my photography. Thank you.
I tend to be in my own little world whilst venturing off with my camera. Perhaps it appears quite manic to strangers, because I may or may not be talking (or singing) to myself, during the process. I often find myself saying ‘Oh sorry’, to whomever accompanies me. It is quite hilarious, and most enjoyable.
I like doing new things, such as this. I find that I’m really intrigued by this aspect of photography. I like that I’m exploring many things, and not just focusing on one specific thing. It’s important to broaden your horizons, and try new things. It’s the only way you learn what you truly love. Yes, mistakes are inevitable, but that’s life. It’s also something I need to remember. Note to self: Listen to own advice.
Anyway, enough rambling for one day. I’ll see you Friday.
‘Anyone who has never made a mistake, has never tried anything new.’
