Not quite what they appear.
This year I’ve been telling myself I need to reconnect with my inner creativity and enjoy photography as an art away from client work.
Don’t get me wrong I love photographing weddings, but I also love photography as an art form and have felt this year I need to take on some personal projects too.
Personal projects for me means its a chance to play, experiment, be creative and learn new techniques that can all be put into my client work too, but to escape into photography, explore and be creative where there is no pressure to produce something for a client or for money, is something I believe every artist needs to tap into regularly.
Earlier in the year, I had been chatting with a photographer friend about doing photo walks, where we wander around taking photos for the sheer pleasure. We also decided to set ourselves challenges each photo walk. And I have to say the first one was a goodie and something I’ve wanted to experiment with for a long time.
So yesterday we headed out and walked the pavement of Teneriffe in Brisbane, a place I’m very familiar with as I lived in Teneriffe for 3 years after moving to Brisbane. In fact, I moved to Brisbane this week 8 years ago, and I haven’t looked back.
Our subject for this challenge is Double Exposure. I had an absolute blast yesterday and here are some of my favourites.
Can’t wait for Photo Walk Challenge #2 in a couple of weeks.
