Any of you photographers out there ever feel like you are having a photo identity crisis? Deep down you know your style is always going to come out in your photography, but then you find yourself looking through too many other photographers blogs and all of a sudden you don't know what you like anymore? One moment you like the clean look of film, and the next minute you start enjoying those VSCO presets and muddy black and whites. Just when you feel you are into the classy look, you start feeling a little funky and weird and want to, I don't know, throw your subject right in the middle of the frame with a wide angle. What if you like contrasty photos..... or do you? This is how I have been feeling lately. I have been obsessed with photography as of late (good thing since it's my career path and all) so I have been lying awake at night asking myself, WHO AM I? So what am I doing to deal with this you ask? I am getting back to the basics, spring cleaning if I may. I've whipped back out the old 35 mm film camera (I now have a Minolta AND a Mamiya) and I have my eye on a Hasselblad (Christmas 2013 come to mama). I'm going to try and shoot more and see where my instincts take me. Here are a few digital images that I shot a few days ago with my friend Andrea. I am obsessed with this girl. Her skin is FLAWLESS and the fact that she is a professional ballerina... well. So anyway, not much has been done to these few photos. Just a few adjustments in Lightroom. I can't wait to get the film back and see how my new (old) camera worked.
Also.... do I have a photo blog you ask..... yes.... but I just feel like posting on this one lately.
^^^I'm totally mad about that light turning on in the background^^
^^^ Seriously, her skin is PERFECTION. This is not edited at all^^^^
