Picks from Phone Gallery 2

This was at a wedding venue last year. That’s the ceiling.

My nephew found a snail. Told him to put it back; he said he liked how it felt as it crawled on his skin! January this year.

A Body of Work-in progress-

Samples from 3 of my photo series. I put them up on a wall. I just look at them from time to time!

I did that on a whim but now that I’ve lost my work laptop, I’ll have more time to just print the already finished photos and cover the whole wall with them. I’ll definitely post update on this later.

Currently, making do with my oldest PC, a pentium 4 that’s only good for browsing right now (not even that works well – current browser versions are way beyond it!) I can at least do minor adjustments with photoshop 6 and send my photos to a print shop.

I’ll still take photos following my newly-adopted no-processing method. I’ll upload more of those photos soon. just a heads up: they’re weird.

Picks from my Phone’s Gallery

I usually hate using a phone as a camera because I don’t have as much control compared to an actual camera. BUT, my new approach to photography (which I’ll write about in another post soon) takes care of that issue. I don’t want control anymore! I only want to point & shoot. back to basics, I guess.

Here are a few recent picks from my phone gallery.

To me, using the phone as a camera feels like cheating. I can’t deny I take some good shots sometimes! Still! Cheating! I really hate smartphones!

Blurred Vision – Path

Sometimes, technical perfection can go to hell!

I like this one. On my way to the beach at around sunset, I shot this with the phone which was already on b&w mode (my standard).

I didn’t give the phone time to breathe. It’s probably why the photo is blurred a bit. Just wanted to snap a photo and send it to my girlfriend before I lost signal!

This kinda proves my belief that a photo doesn’t have to look all neat and nice for it to mean something to someone.

Blurred Vision – Lost

Hello again!

it’s been a while! (It seems that I’ve been saying that a lot in my recent posts! Of course, I post once every few months or so… )

Life knows how to shew a person then spit him out, I can tell you that! (ok, maybe that’s a bit too dramatic for my case. it sure feels like it though.)

I’ve always felt lost, it’s been one of my many struggles trying to deal with uncertainly and lack of determination. Recently, that feeling strengthened itself and took more of mine than ever before.

I don’t want to go through my negativity in detail here. I know nobody wants to get depressed. I just thought I’d share a couple of my recent photos that perhaps do better than my words.

DSC08810

No post-processing done. set up the camera to B&W with a slight increase of contrast.

My laptop is broken so I had/have no way of working on RAWs anymore. I got the idea of going back to basics (Well, as basic as I could afford; I’d have preferred a couple of Tri-X 400 rolls but no resources where I live so I had to settle with digital JPG.)

I wanted to shoot without intention or vision (really, really difficult!), Something will come out of me and into the photos one way or another and that what I was looking for. I believe I was successful at least in the photos above.
