Waiting

Its easy to fall into the ‘waiting’ trap, Waiting for something to end, waiting for something to start, waiting in line. But here’s the thing: that ‘waiting’ bit, is called life. Live life, through the good and the bad. Don’t press pause, you miss so much.

My original idea didn’t include the bubble, I decided to add during processing. For me the bubbler symbolises my own life, and how it can become quite insular at times when I focussing on the wrong things.

Construction: Nikon D700, 50mm lens, self timer. I took the image of myself run my bedroom using a step ladder. My body is multiple composites, layered in Photoshop. The background is one I love from the house I used to live in, such beautiful light and space. The bubble came from an image @unsplash, a cool website where photographers share free images.


Ice

Sometimes I come across as cold, rude or disinterested. I am none of these things. I have anxiety. I am afraid.

This image came about through a bit of playing around with ice. What I was trying to create didn’t work so I used the ice as a textured layer instead created this.

Construction:

Nikon D700, 50mm lens. I photographed a block of ice and layers it over the top of the original image using blending modes in Photoshop. Image shot with natural light. Self portrait.
