contemplative

Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled Untitled

I been reading this book lately in the effort to improve my photography. I feel that there is still something that is lacking from my images. I'm constantly searching how to make it better. When I take a frame I hardly ever think about the elements of design and I only shoot what I see and feel good at the time. The aim this year is to work on that. Work on incorporating elements of design for a much stronger composition. At the same time practice comtemplative photography, I know this is hard to do when you're working under pressure, however I'd like to use it when I practice shooting 2 or 3 times a week.

  2. Your photos are very good, actually. I'm no pro but I love these photographs. Especially because I want to have succulents in my home soon. :)

  4. book sounds great, l.

    you need to play with your holga! and you know what else works? going to the art gallery of nsw and seeing what's on (without your camera), just spending an hour or two really looking at other kinds of pictures - paintings, prints, that sort of thing.

    that said, your eye is so beautiful - just as it is.

  5. I have this book Luisa. And your words and pictures have inspired me to actually get it down to from the shelf where it has been gathering dust and have a proper read so thank you for the nudge.

    I love your composition (and the colours) on those photos of the succulent plants (if that's what you call them in Aus?)

  8. I am in a total rut with my photography at the moment. So thank you for the tip. I do love mindfulness.

  10. Your photography is already quite contemplative Lu, but I understand very well your feeling of lack. Exploring new points of view and styles is the destiny of every artist, and I'm sure that you with your innate optimism, ability and perseverance will arrive to the moment when you'll see your work and feel it full and rich in its message and composition.

  12. It's so funny that you say that - every time I see one of your photos I think, I wish my perspective on the world were that beautiful. I feel like it really requires a certain insight to take the kind of photos you do. But it's always good to be trying to improve, I guess :)
