A blog about design, beauty, and a little creativity
Last one I promise!
This is the second in the series, and this is the first image I created. I didn’t really like it overall so I decided to try again.
This is my second attempt, and I was happier with this, but after seeing both, I can’t decide. I like the fist one because of the rich colors, and I like the second one for the simplified aesthetic and how the peacock tail stands out.
Oh well, I am not as happy with either of these as I am with the leopard image even though the peacock images are a lost crisper. I’m also a little shy about posting any of these because the bare back feels like I am exposing too much even though I’m not exposing any more of myself here than I would wearing a bikini….maybe I’m just too much of a prude, but I do hope that I don’t offend anybody.
The Leopard and its spots
I have finally started what I resolved to do almost a year ago. This is the first of 365 photos I will be doing (hopefully) in the next year. This photo is about being comfortable in our own skin. I haven’t always been happy with who I am or how I look, but I am taking control and doing what I can to become happy with myself and accepting the things that cannot change as part of what makes me unique. This is actually going to be part of a series, more to come later.
Testing the Water
This is a practice piece for another self portrait I want to do later on. I love fairy tales and would like to do my own interpretation of fairy tales through the 365 project. I love how photography and digital manipulation can help to create a new world, a world of your own with a thousand interpretations and possibilities. How many people can say that they were a mermaid for a day?
Edit: Yes I changed the theme again. I thought a fresh theme with a fresh start would be nice.
Man I have been slack in keeping up with this blog. In my defense, school must always take a priority and it doesn’t leave much room for anything else. But now that I have had some time to unwind I have been thinking about what I want to do in the New Year and what I want to accomplish. Finishing up school this spring is first on the list, but beyond that there are a few more items on my list of resolutions:
1. Start a 365-I really want to continue taking pictures, and this is a great way for me to improve and grow as a photographer as well as a person
2. that said, following through is the next goal. I wrote about this in an earlier post, but I plan to finish everything I start
3. Start and finish the project ideas that have pile up on my desktop.
4. de-clutter our apartment and revamp so it doesn’t look so much like two college students live there.
5. Get healthy and become more active.
6. Cook at least 3 meals a week.
7. Get a job
As you can see, it is quite a list but shoot for the moon right?
Also I am considering moving my blog from wordpress to tumblr…. I will post the link if I do.
I hope everybody has a wonderful New Years!
