If you’d like to follow my personal tumblr, drop me a message.
This is my photography blog, which I post on every few months, and will only be used for photography. My personal tumblr is where I post every week/every day (should I have internet access). If you’re following me, or you’ve found me through likes, asks, or some sort of commentary or ask on another blog, it’s likely you would benefit more from following my personal tumblr and not this one (or both if you wish, this one isn’t intrusive).
For those of you following my photography blog because it is a photography blog, I thank you.
I am currently working on challenging myself with two different series of photographs.
The first project is to photograph things that make me uncomfortable. I have tactile-emotion synesthesia and some textures and appearances make me feel disgusting and unclean. I am going to attempt to capture that in a photograph. I may also try to photograph situations or ideas that make me uncomfortable. I already have a few done, but I think I’m going to wait to post them until I have a better idea of what the series will be as a whole, and then I will post the final images I’ve selected together.
The second project is to take portraits of people or photographs with people in them. When I am taking pictures, I am almost never around people. This will be challenging because I know how I like to photograph arthropods and nature, but not people. I’ll also have to be around people more in order to photograph them, and I will most likely have to interact directly and communicate with what I’m photographing, instead of manipulating the angle from which I’m observing something occurring naturally.
