iPhone shots. Winter break is almost over…
I think I’m going to start carrying my point and shoot around and taking more personal, day-to-day shots. I’ve been looking at the work of Thomas Prior and Lina Scheynius and I’m starting to get into kind of Eggleston-esque diary photos. The problem is editing: I’d like to do more with color, but can’t really get the look I want. I love color film, but it’s difficult to get processed frequently: would people recommend saving up for something like VSCO?
Happy new year!
I’m not really one for resolutions, but here are some blog related ones:
- Post more
- Take more photos
Pretty simple, huh? Well, I’ve been doing some thinking. While I’d definitely like to become a professional photographer, I’m still going to try to post here regularly, and not go so crazy about self-editing. I’m also going to try much more to get out and actually take photos (despite the snow). My current goal for posting is once a week, starting TODAY! In the same vein of being a professional photographer, maybe I’ll try and rent out my portrait services!
In the spirit of not going so crazy about self-editing, here is a semi-abstract photo of one of my friends. Personally, I like the photo a lot: I feel like it is kind of reminiscent of the work of my favorite photographer, Daido Moriyama.
Winter break has finally arrived!
