Today I came home and felt pretty strange. Did this, did that and then I noticed that I took my last photo three weeks ago! Three! It really didn't feel like three weeks...and like I posted on my facebook page I wanted to shoot so bad - I have planned some pretty cool concepts! But therefore I have to got out...no time today. Anyway I had to take a photo today. HAD TO. but no idea what I could do at home...so after a lot of thinking I did this. The original looked horrible to be honest. Photoshop I love you! Actually I do like it a lot now! Galaxy wooooh! Strange girl hm?
I often feel the urge to take a picture even if I have no concept but the need is so big that I can not concentrade on any other things. It is only about the process of creating something...do you have that need too?
Well this photo has been created because of that feeling. I think it is one of my better photos I took under these circumstances^^ Besides I do like the concept a lot! Even if it emerged durring the last minutes of shooting^^
The jar I snatched at something called hopping (read more about it here [link] - yes, I finally did it^^ and want to do it again!)
Please give conctructive critiques! I haven't gotten any critique for too long!
Sometimes when we dream we have really strong feelings. So strong that they seem almost real. But then we wake up and the dream is over... but there is still a tiny bit left of that certain feeling...it becomes less and less, it fades away and then you forgot how it felt, forgot how it was...because it is gone.
my first attempt in creating something based on real feelings...
for the smoke I used this stock [link] and some brushes
"»Von mir willst du den Weg erfahren?« »Ja«, sagte ich, »da ich ihn selbst nicht finden kann.« »Gibs auf, gibs auf«, sagte er und wandte sich mit einem großen Schwunge ab, so wie Leute, die mit ihrem Lachen allein sein wollen."
the idea was that I started building up a lego castle and gave up...but the photo didn't turn out like I wanted. you can not really see the unfinished castle, the lego bricks in my hand and so on still I uploaded it because my boyfriend and me spend a lot of time on building the castle...I forgot what playing with lego means. sitting on the floor for ages, looking for THAT brick in a heap of other bricks, trying to understand the instructions. ooh I got old...my whole body hurted because of sitting on the floor xD
I really had no concept in mind when taking this. I just thought it would look interesting - even if it actually didn't turn out like I imagined. The title came afterwards, so you still can interpret it in a specific way I think^^
I could have put this for S in my alphabet project but I haven't planned it for this letter. The photo is inspired by the video of the new Linkin Park song Castle of Glass. There is this one scene where Mike is standing in a rain of glass. Since I don't have shards at home and don't want to cut myself I used kitchen foil here^^ it doesn't look like glass but I like the effect of the light on it!
