First off, Merry Christmas everyone! And happy holidays and wishes to those who don't celebrate it, I hope you are all having a wonderful time and looking forward till the New Year and wish that 2017 will be a great fresh start. This year has been difficult, it's been a bit of a mess but 2016 has been surprisingly successful for me, it's been so much better than 2015! I want to thank everyone for making this such an amazing year for me. I feel like I have grown so much, with all your comments and feedback, all the support has been overwhelming. There are so many of you now watching me and I hope I can continue to impress you.
I never thought that doing this 'photo a week' challenge would bring me so much pleasure, it's been so much fun! I'm on the final week now and I've not got a photo yet but I'll come up with something. And since that's coming to an end I've no idea what I'm going to do for 2017 and that terrifies me. I feel like if I don't think of something my anxiety and depression will come back and I really don't want that too happen.
I'm gonna ask you guys, if you'd like, to comment and show your three favourite pieces that you have created this year and tell me a little bit about them. It's another way to share art work. I'm not very good at these journals, nothing very exciting happens to me, but anyway........please show me yours!
1) The photo was done super quickly on my living room floor balancing the natural light and my flashgun together and with a filter and some editing I got this. Like the whole took me about fifteen minutes and the reaction I got for it was so unexpected! A freaking DD! It was only meant to be a silly wee image! 2) Yet another rushed photo cause I was running out of days, I had roses that I was going to use for something else but they were quickly dying so I got an empty notebook and sat everything out on my mums bed and stood on a stool. My friend gave me some of the filters she had on her laptop and I played about with it for a while. Again I was completely surprised with the response I got and also with the number of views it has! 3) If I could go back I think I would have left the matches out. I remember being stuck for ideas so I went through my dads photo collection and I suddenly got this cool idea for a crime/thriller story and this was the cover I imagined for it. The set up was lit with natural light and the props are sitting on a white shirt and I stood on a chair to take it. This was the second composition I tried, the first one was way too symmetrical.
Like I said, I'm not good with words but believe me when I say I'm super grateful to have all of you and I love you guys so so much, and as always I'll leave you with a feature of some of the recent stuff I have faved. Speak to you all again in 2017!
