A World of its Own

I don’t have much to say about this little collection. I found a subject then I proceeded to take photos of. I kinda got tired of this method. I will soon be posting an article on my new approach to photography.

The following ones are taken with a phone and lightly-processed with Lightroom mobile – also something (post-processing) I don’t want to do anymore.

I noticed that the sharpest of my photos are the ones shot on film! Or maybe they look too sharp because I initially never had high expectations for film quality so when they turned out sharp, I immediately saw them as the sharpest! I still don’t know. What I do know though is I definitely prefer film, sharp or not!


A Snail Shell on A Tree Trunk

Today’s photo is rich in texture and contrast. A white snail shell I placed on a tree trunk with darker tones.

I like it a lot even though it doesn’t mean anything. I like the contrast between the fluid spiral line and the sharp and broken texture of the trunk suface. It looks like a photo that I can happily print, frame and hang on the wall. So I guess I’ll do that!

Speaking of printing photos, are you the kind of person who prefers prints or is satisfied with having the pictures on your computer or your phone? snail_shell
