This kind of reminds me of the song "Set Fire to the Rain". I definitely love the shot, especially the right half, which reminds me of summer nights and a fiery sky. Awesome work. :)

Everything has probably already been said about this, but I think it's fantastic.

i never rrrreally play around with shades of orange so figured id give it a go ;) and yeah , it was one of the better profile shots however so i had to decide on the positive or negative lol

I love these double frames (double meanings?) pieces! And the answer you gave to ~AllegroDiRossi makes me say: You Are Awesome :worship:
petebritney's avatar
the double pieces are deliberately coherant and the images represent things about/to do with me :) sometimes i will share the meaning , sometimes its just more personal that i dont care to .
and LOL thanks , just being honest as i said ! :D

Great. I think most of the times it's better not to share the meaning and leave the viewer to her/his interpretations. The same should be done for songs, I guess.

i removed the iris and pupil in my eye , perhaps that has thrown you off my normal look ?

Aah, this is so nice! How do you get the ideas for your photos? I'm taking a photo class this year and I'm having a hard time taking compelling photographs. Any advice?

music lyrics , other images , my emotions at the time , but usually the death of night is what inspires me ? LOL it sounds crazy but the early hours of the morning is when i prefer to do my photography and editing . it inspires me with a curiosity of another world , the slightly eerie yet tender hours . a photo in the night can be so romantic , but then could send chills up your spine with fear .
but all my pieces have EXTREMELY personal meanings !! my gallery is a secret timeline of my recent life .
so do things for you , thats my advice ! take a photo YOU want to , put across a message YOU want to , if someone doesnt like it they can take their own photos and admire them lol
sorry , ranted a bit there . .

Hehe, it figures that its such a personal process. I guess there's no such thing as a step-by-step process for art! Oh well, I can only hope that I develop an eye for it and find my way to make stuff as interesting as yours. Thanks for the advice!
petebritney's avatar
its not a step by step process in that its all laid out for you , but it is a one step at a time process in that you just make the journey and discover as you go along :)
youre very much welcome btw
