9/52 "silence in between" on flickr
N°2 on flickr
this image and "silence in between" are part of an ongoing series, "a longing to be completed" inspired by the film "Stoker". :) check out the Flickr set here.
these are the images from this week that i've created! :) i'm particularly fond of the third one despite its flaws.
since i've started going in a different direction in photography, i've been spending more time on a single image instead of just a few minutes on dozens of images like how i used to. this change in my creating process somewhat surprises me and in a good way too, i feel a deeper sense of contentment in everything i've created this year so far. i'm not quite sure how to categorize my recent images but i'll go with fine art/conceptual, it can take as little time as 2 hours to as much as a few days for me to come up with a final image of what i had in mind. these photographs stem from an idea, a thought or a concept that has a significance to me and i want so badly to be able to create the image exactly or as close to as what i see in my mind. everytime that i finally get an image that i'm happiest with, i am filled with happiness and warmth (and fuzziness) inside.
i think these images make me feel most satisfied, proud and happy than i've ever been able to feel with my photography. i feel more in tune with my emotions and it encourages me to create to how i feel and also helps ease my cluttered mind a little. i hope that all of you would love, enjoy and appreciate my work now more than ever before because i think that these images of mine are some of the most meaningful and sincere than anything i've ever done before. for all of this, i have endless inspiration from photographers and Flickr that have kept me going.
i'm at a very good place with photography right now (knock on wood) and i am so in love with learning and gaining a better, deeper understanding of conceptual photography.
