Hey y’all. Really appreciate the support on my last written piece two posts ago. As I write more - I want to know what topics YOU would like me to dive into. My next post will be about a topic someone recommends, I’ll tag you here too. Can be about anything- not just photo! Let’s do this.
Every time you shoot, there’s the potential that you’ll pick up some new little trick, some hidden technique, that you’ll add to your creative toolbox. It’s the layering of these variables which unlocks the city for you, which turns the streets into a song that you can play with chords and harmonies. You’ll mix the light like paint on canvases of double-paned glass, and see every widening ring of turbulence in a puddle where the drops hit. You’ll move yourself, in your mind, two feet this way, two feet that, and all of the practice you’ve put in will allow you simulate those compositions, projecting yourself through space and time. . The way you use those layers, those variables that add up like some beautiful equation- those choices are what eventually define your style. Because the combinations are infinite, every eye is entirely unique, informed by a steady evolution towards the combinations that you’re drawn towards. You’ll never master the craft, no one ever will- because every new technique you absorb exponentially increases your potential. And anyway, the world changes all around you, rushes like a time-lapse, and introduces its own avenues and barriers to overcome. . It’s a beautiful way to move through the world, always looking. A hypersensitivity to the details of things, to the overlapping of circumstance, the random, synaptic firing of the world around you.
Looking to feature cool artists in my story today. Who’s doing the coolest stuff right now? What blew your mind this week? Tag names here, DM me, let’s surface some 💎s for everyone.
Every day holds a new promise, the same potential as an unbloomed flower, open your heart to the unfurling serendipity of it all, you’ll be amazed at what will find you.
Archive dives... one of my favorite things about photographs is that they can be a catalyst for a cascade of memories, a key to a locked memory or feeling.
