The other day I had a talk with a photography friend who "challenged" me in my work. He told me even if it doesn't come out good- challenge yourself. So I did. It was a great experience and showed me how far I had come, yet how far I still have to go.
In keeping that mind set, I have gotten a lot done lately that I feel good about. I think I'm finally getting to that point in my work where the piece has its own voice and I don't need to force anything upon it. I also feel like as an artist I am starting to find my own voice, and people are listening. I think that's bc after all these years I know what I want to say, and I'm going to say it whether people listen or not. Well, come to find out, they start to listen, and that feels good.
Here are a few shots I've nabbed as of late:
