Here we are again at the end of another year. Not just any year but the end of another decade. I don’t know about you but the year 2020 sounds so Star Trekkish. Usually when people say 2020 they’re talking about the news show 20/20. Considering that Christmas and New Years’ Day are both on a Wednesday, I’m not even going to write my blog for those weeks. Why not? Because you’ll be too busy enjoying time with your family or celebrating the holiday to even check your email, let along read it. Besides, I don’t plan on spending the days prior to those days even writing a blog. I do have a life, you know. Besides, I’ll be too busy making plans for my business next year. I’ve been thinking about switching things up, just a little bit.
You might be asking what I will be switching up. Well, you’re going to have to wait for that. Plus, I’m not really sure yet myself. I’ve had a few ideas run through my head but haven’t solidified anything yet. Whatever I decide to do, I do hope you all will join me on my journey. Like many artists, I want to grow and try something different. The only problem is I’m not sure what I want to try. As I stated previously, I do want to switch it up but that’s as far as I got. What I will say is that I am leaning more toward my artsy side. I love fine art! I really do. I like to think of some of my photography as traditional, fine art with a twist. Here are a few of my favorites from over the years that I feel fit that description.
I love photographing in this style. It’s just so classic. Besides, I believe it emphasizes that we are all works of art. As I’ve said before, I am inspired by my subjects and my surroundings. That’s also why all of my images aren’t like this. Not all of my subjects inspire this type of imagery. That’s not a bad thing. It’s just different energy causes a different creative path. Take for instance the image below:
I adore this image. She is just the cutest, roly-poly baby! This doesn’t say fine art. It’s just a cute baby being herself. One thing that you may see with this image and the others is that the sets are not elaborate. I know plenty of photographers who create beautiful images with all kinds of creative and elaborates sets, but that’s just not my style. I like to keep it simple with just a few props, if any. I want to photograph my subjects in a way that you concentrate on them and only them and make sure the image is not boring. I will try to make sure there is something that will keep your interest in the frame. Maybe it’s their expression or what they’re doing. Something.
Anyway, I just wanted to share that information with you. Not sure if I really shared anything, but I do hope you enjoyed this blog nonetheless. I look forward to another year. A chance to start anew and to create more. Opportunities to meet new people and reunite with not-so-new people. I look forward to the challenges, the lessons and the growth. I pray that you all have a joyous holiday, no matter what you celebrate or don’t celebrate. Make these last two and a half weeks count. I know I will. I said all of that to say, be on the lookout for some changes next year! Until then, be safe and enjoy life! Ayesha out!
