I’m not all that excited about the photo for today! The color is alright and everything, but I’m just not all that enthused about it. Depending on the weather, I really want to find some time tomorrow to go to a new spot in my area. Maybe I’ll find something new. I want to get excited about taking pictures!
Sometimes I think I have something cool as I’m shooting, only to find that later on when I return home to really get a good look at them, they aren’t so great. I’m pretty sure that the pictures I’m posting are actually relatively decent, I’ve just taken so many photos (literally hundreds over the past few months) that I think I’m a little burnt out.
An idea I had before I even got started on this 365 day challenge, was that I could do some drawings on paper – like designs or doodles or whatever – and then take some photos of those. I still think that could be a cool idea, and it might be something to try in the coming days. We’ll see how I feel tomorrow!
Here’s another long photo for the day. I’m not sure how I’ll share it on Instagram with it being rectangle and all, but I’m sure I’ll figure it out. I’ll find a decent square angle that Instagram will accept.
Earlier today I spent a lot of time updating my Year of Creative Habits 2017 page. It took an hour or two (I didn’t keep track of the time, but it was awhile!) to finish it all up, but it seems to be looking good! It’s nice to have all my artwork and photographs on a single page for easy viewing. Click an image to make it larger, click the day number to view the original post for that day.
Here’s the direct link to that page 🙂
It’s a bit rainy today. I decided it would be a fun idea to add a bit of art to my photograph today, and I’m quite happy with how it turned out! It almost looks like a huge looming sun in the background. I also like how the colors turned out on the top and the bottom there. Although, I guess I could have made the orange a bit more orange-y!
I was contemplating a few things last night; I wonder if it would be a good idea to put every post on my Patreon. I mean, that’s where I get my financial support, and I really like that platform overall. Though my stuff is easy to find (right? I feel it is), I still think having it all in a single place is beneficial to everyone. What do you think? I’m not seriously considering this yet, but the thought did cross my mind. There has been some confusion in the past on where to find my new posts. So perhaps a change would be best.
Hello! Gonna be random and yell GO LEAFS GO!
When I was sick there for a week it really messed me up. I have to find some time to get back into my usual creative mode because I just haven’t felt like doing a whole lot of drawing lately. I mean, I’m still doing creative things with my photographs, and I do a little doodle on each one, but I’m talking about the bigger projects.
I’m not going to rush it or force things though. I’ll take my time and see what happens throughout the rest of this week. Maybe an idea will hit me, like something that I just have to put down onto “paper”. Oh! Here’s an idea, during the hockey game tonight (did I mention Go Leafs Go!?) I’ll have my sketchpad handy and do some doodles. Real paper for once! We’ll see what I can come up with. Maybe it’ll spark something.
It’s creepy hallway time!
The photographs that I took today of this apartment hallway ended up a little too grainy. So I felt that I had to artify it up a bit. Remove the color, add a bit to the exit sign there, and get some kind of interesting angles going!
It’s kind of funny, you know? I’ve never been all that much of a horror guy. Movies or otherwise. But my absolute favorite thing to photograph is creepy stuff. Well, whether you think some of my stuff is creepy or not, I’m trying real hard to get it to look this way. I wonder if I’ll ever look back at 2017 as the year I discovered this about myself. It’s certainly very new to me! And I’m not trying so hard (yet) to accomplish the dark imagery where I’m doing my research, or figuring out how to best build tension into an image and things like that. I’m just going with what feels right as I’m taking pictures or editing them.
