Black and White Photo Challenge

I was challenged by Sadie Scissors to do the Black and White Photo Challenge. I thought it was great. It kept me consistent with posting photos, which I’ve been quite terrible with lately. I didn’t finish it in the end, but it was a good effort. Here are the results of what I did manage to accomplish:

1/7

2/7

3/7

4/7

5/7 – FAILED

6/7 – FAILED

7/7 – FAILED

If you haven’t tried this challenge yet, I suggest you give it a try. Perhaps, you’ll do better than me and actually complete it!

New Year, New Things, and Instant Explorations. 

It’s been an adjustment process the past couple of months. I’m using the start of the new year as my starting point for new beginnings. 

It’s been much quieter this past year with posting photos despite my intentions of actually posting more. I suppose that it’s more from stepping back rather than stepping away. 

As I dive deeper into the World of Photography, I’m finding myself looking for more of the bigger picture. My technique and approach fall under my lens of self-scrutiny. Because of it, I guess I just ended filling my brain with more than enough information that I just divert from the original thought completely. 

So, here I am with an overcrowded head full of concepts entangled with unnecessary information and a wardrobe hemorrhaging with creations just waiting for their moment in the spotlight. 

Despite seeing and knowing this, I decided to try some instant film photography instead. Of course, I could easily incorporate some of the concepts into instant film. Alas, I am a muppet and shot other things instead. Silly me. 

I’ve been keeping it fairly simple the past month or so and have just been shooting instant film. It’s still not a lot nor as much as I used to shoot before, but it’s definitely more regulat than what I’ve shot in the past year. Perhaps, it’ll be just instant film things for awhile…?

This year, I definitely want to do more photography. Ideally, I’m hoping to photograph more of other people than of myself. I’ve got projects that I’d like to get off the ground. We’ll see how things go, though.

I think I’ve babbled enough for one post. Back to some sewing things…

All Dressed In Blue

I’ve started working on creating a little set in my little space, building a scene. I’m not quite sure what I’m going for yet, but it’s been a slow process. Ideally, it’ll be a spot where I can shoot most, if not all, of my photos. The background in the photo here is the start of this creation. It’s not much at the moment, but it’s simple and effective. I’m still working with blue light spills, working to perfect it, and enjoying the cooling effect that it gives. 

The dress in the photo is one of my more recent creations, an original and fulfilling my subconscious love for blue dresses and lace. I’m not quite ready to part with this dress just yet. So, it’ll probably be at least two more shoots with this before I put her up in my shop. 

But that back opening…ugh! Maybe I’ll just end up keeping it. 

Until my next adventures…!
