We're going on 13 weeks, and so far I have noticed two things, the two projects I started the year out has seen a cut. What I mean is, I have cut out one of the two projects. Yeah that's better.
So as a recap I started out the year with a wildlife photo as terrifying as a Cottonmouth Water Moccasin and a four days later caught a multiple exposure titled "Triple Palms". This led me to think of how I started my photography journey and how I have grown throughout the years. With this two Projects emerged - "Wild Florida" and "Lights, Camera, Abstract!". I had given myself guidelines for each of these projects, in Wild Florida I had to take one new photo weekly for 2015, showcasing wildlife in South Florida. So far I should have 13 new photos but unfortunately for one reason or another and after adding older photos just to catch up; I have made the decision to stop the project.
"Cottonmouth Water Moccasin"
"Triple Palms" From the Project: "Lights, Camera, Abstract!"
In the project "Lights, Camera, Abstract!" I gave myself less guidelines and more of a series of keywords for my project: Lights Streaking Bouncing Bright Color Shapes. From these 6 words I have opened a project with endless possibilities for images. So as anything goes in life - one door closes and another door opens or stays open. In this case my mind as expanded beyond any expectations I had when I started taken simple photographs. I'd like to clarify something a lot of people seem to not know, all of the multiple exposure images I have in the gallery have not entered photoshop of have been photoshopped. As with the old film double exposures occurred with marking and manually winding film, I too have accomplished this in camera digitally. At times I will photograph an object and look for another subject to add the first image with and 90% of the time it will happen when I least expect it. Recently I was explaining and demonstrating in camera how my project is evolving and during this brief explanation I captured an amazing photo that has given me the most satisfaction that I have rarely seen in other parts of my work. Granted that a lot of these images have more underlying feelings that most people will never truly know, but in the end if I don't feel something your not going to feel anything.
