Suby In The House
I am starting a series today I am calling "Dark" Child Series. Why the "Dark" in inverted commas I hear you ask?
Okay a little explanation here.
I love photography, I do not claim to be the best Photographer/prosumer or Photoshopper out there, I do not even claim to know what I am doing, all I know is I have been bitten by this photography bug for years and I have followed this passion thus far and I AM LOVING EVERY MOMENT I SPEND ON IT.
Now this brings me to my images, I love people photography, I love capturing images of people in their natural states, be it laughing crying, smiling etc. I love presenting my images in a certain way "DARK" I really do not know why but I just like the look of a slightly darker image to that of a bright image. In the "Dark Child Series" I am taking that a little further and presenting a series of kiddy shots a little darker than normal.
WHY? Well because the Subster Likes it, because I CAN, because even though I know it may not be the cup of tea or some, I also know that some others will love it. Blogging is not the easiest thing in the world, we invite critics from any & everyone, but sometimes (I have been guilty of this also) we seem to forget that the image may have taken or edited the way it has been presented for a reason. I now tend to look at the archives of blogs I visit to see if there is a pattern in the images, then I think I am in a better place to comment on the image, no use telling someone the shot has to much colour when his/her last 30 posts have had a theme of bright colours is there?
One of my favourite blogs out there is NoWords
not only are his images stunning, I appreciate the fact he only lets the image do the talking, no titles, no comments, no explanations, he lets his photography walk the walk. I wish I was at the stage of my photography where I could do this
, I do not feel I am at this place/stage yet, but I am aiming to get there sometime soon. He has a certain style, what is his style? Quality shots being posted time after time
So to those still reading, I bring you this little series, I hope you all enjoy viewing these images, please feel free as always to drop your comments, positive, negative & constructive, but please before you drop a comment that the images are too dark, look at my archived images, I do this intentional. Let me know instead how I could improve this style.
