Ugh, getting out my post late in the day is not how I like to roll, but this picture pretty much sums up how I felt the past few days with regards to my photography. I have been on a couple expeditions with no results and it’s very frustrating. I figured since I wasn’t finding anything out in the world, I would bring the world of photography to me.
My initial intention was pretty close to my end result. I wanted a black and white photo of my eyes being all angry like. I snapped a few pictures with my camera on a tripod and using a remote shutter release. This was more challenging than I though, because I needed to make sure my eyeballs were the items in focus. I just let the camera rip and deleted all of the garbage images.
When I took this photo into post, things started to take a big change. I noticed the effect of blowing out everything buy my eyes. It really gives that “No Fear” look. Anyone who knows that line will know exactly what I’m talking about. I was really happy with this end result, as it relieves some of that built up angry toward my bad luck the past couple of days.
This also knocks off another part of the scavenger hunt off the list “Abstract Self Portrait.” I am not normally an angry guy with normal things. When it comes to silly things, like not finding a photo, or video games, or driving, I can become the Incredible Hulk with rage, but normal every day life I am a calm and collective individual. Keep on hunting!
