Hope from the Lamp

These are one kind of photos I create when I’m bored inside the house, minimlistic black and white abstracts.

I took the photos. I edited them. And I had no idea what I was creating; It was me killing time, that’s all. However, now when I look at them, there is too much blackness and it feels like it’s trying to envelop the little bit of light left which is strong enough to hang on and actually manage to stay within the frame.

If I saw that much hope in these extremely simple frames then I guess I’m not as cynical as I thought.

Lines Between Shadows and Light

Technically they’re mostly midtones but I’m sure you get the idea.

I’m still in search for my own style. For that reason, I’m not shying away from shooting anything, and I mean anything! That’s the beauty of photography; it encompasses an infinity of subjects and meanings. The simplicity of this photo series might be its depth or it might be just a photo collection of a plain wall.

It doesn’t really matter much to me. I love shooting anything exactly because there’s no real meaning for it or there is something to it and it just sits there waiting for someone to see it.

Perhaps that ambiguity is how I want my photography to be in the future; I don’t know. What I know is that I’m going to keep putting my heart into exploring the realm of photography.

Roofless

Weekly Photo Challenge: Atop

I’m not very fond of this perspective, being above the subject while shooting, unless it serves my idea for the photograph such as the following photo for instance.

I wanted the photo messy and with layers of subjects so shooting from above serves that idea. If I had captured it from eye-level, it would have been a little bit flat. For someone else, it might have been a better photo. It just wasn’t what I was looking for.

This shot was taken from a window of a house in the second floor (right on top of the house in the photo). The house in the ground-floor has a sort of a hall/open space that’s roofless which is how most of Tunisia’s traditional old houses are. I lived in one for quite a while and it gets troublesome in rainy winters!

 

Picks from March, 12th 2017

Taking photos while going through my boring daily life is the only thing that makes it a bit interesting.

This is a new black and white collection with a softer feel to it than Ingrained in the Night and maybe more optimistic.

I didn’t care much about what subject to shoot. I simply avoided all the things I’ve already photographed before and focused more on composition and structure in most of the photos. The end result gave me an idea for a new photography venture (new for me, of course. I’m simply trying to find my own style by doing everything that’s been done first.)

Anyway, I hope you find these photos interesting and enjoy them. Taken yesterday in my family’s holiday house.

the next ones are a mix of the usual and the new. also, i didn’t forget to convert the colored one to black and white. I kept the color because it has value in this case, at least in my eyes.

 

Ingrained in the Night

These are a few sample photos from my humble first photography collection titled Ingrained in the Night.

The idea is to capture my hometown in all of its roughness, dirtiness, and imperfections. This is my hometown the way I see it.

The series is unfinished but once it’s complete I will post it all again. I hope you like the photos.
