Sometimes we take decisions which lead us towards a less comfortable situation, pushing our boundaries so that we can grow into e new version of ourselves. This often takes some kind of courage and, therefore, it’s not an easy thing to do. We like our good and bad habits because we know what to expect. But the nicest things happen when we thing outside the box.
In the past three years I’ve been learning about how to become a teacher, which at first felt pretty uncomfortable, in the same way I had some issues calling myself a photographer after twenty years of experience shooting in studio. But learning to become a better teacher might have made me a better version of myself, and perhaps a better photographer. I don’t know, but I’d like to think so. Anyway, it feels good to look back and realize that we are not in the same place we were not long ago, as a really good friend said to me.
There is something cool about the way in which you can use texture in photography.
Sunday morning spent looking up…
Easy, relaxing shots. My kind of yoga exercise…slowly getting into my daily routine!
A 50 mm lens changes everything, style and prospettive, getting farther away from the subject and giving the opportunity of using empty space, to draw the viewer attention through the composition.
So I went back to find this, rather than what I was expecting…
I used a 105 mm and 50 mm lenses, shooting with narrow depth of field, natural light, at 250 ISO and no tripod. Decay fascinates me, it’s definitely one of my favourite subjects.
I’ve finally got in the studio to work on a new project. It’s a work in progress, but I had this idea in my head for a while now, so I had to try it out. Plastic is quite challenging to photograph, as it’s not a beautiful subject and you’ll end up with plenty of riflections to deal with…But I love challenges and hate pollution…so I had to give it a try!
