Since Covid came into our lives, my creativity has been at a minimum. I think the virus doesn’t directly have that effect, so it must be me….
“It’s not you, it’s me”.
I think I’m not having a good attitude, I’m very negative, I don’t feel like going out, I don’t feel like taking the camera, I feel like this…
This photograph was taken for a Photography and Self-Knowledge Workshop for Brave Women, which I did a couple of years ago.
One of the exercises was to make a self-portrait that showed our emotion of the moment.
And I chose a very bad day for it. I don’t usually curse, but sometimes…
(as this blog is a bad-words-free space,
I won’t translate the word from the mirror…) 😉
I tried to encourage my creativity, just with confinement I started the series “Instaphoto”.
A project that is unfinished, I have 8 photos left to make and I have few ideas to realize them.
For the holidays I took all the artillery… Two cameras, tripod, macro lens… and I haven’t taken them out of the backpack…
Fortunately it occurred to me to take a journey back in time and go to the beginnings of photography. I did several tests of Lumen prints, in the previous entry of Lens-Artist “Under the Sun” I already showed you the first result.
I even got creative with what I put “cooking” in the sun…
Shortly I will show you how it went with the Lumen.
But I have to do something about my attitude, I have to stop complaining and get to work, which, it’s said, is the best way to find inspiration. I would rather be like this…
“If we do not have the capacity to change a situation, we face a greater challenge: to change ourselves”
