- Tuesday, 06/27/23 ** 22:11 Back to work, back to journaling. Back to photos.
Got a new photo editing program - Capture One. Sure, tech doesn't hold you back per se, but using this program makes so obvious that Darktable really did not fit my needs. The raw profile just isn't there; Darktable everything looks flat and dry, but Capture One is so, so vivid.
Gus, Margot, Phoebe, friends... finding Trevor Wisecup and Poupay Jutharat today... feel really re-inspired by photography. Photos should be about people, about friends, about space, about people I know intimately. I've been thinking about space over the course of this whole trip - my photos have felt so flat, so cramped, and I want to see how wide I can open them, how much space I can explore through them. That's how I've been thinking about my framing - leaving tons of negative space for people to breathe- but in other ways I've been thinking a lot less. I love the experiments with lower apertures, with slower shutter speeds, with friends; I want to capture my friends, new peopl,e in space, giving them the opprortunity to breathe. ** 22:53 On starting career from 0 - Poupay.
Go to tourist spots and find weird people. Document weird people. Go to events. Make a series for a mag and a first pitch to a mag.
Your first pitch needs to take time; spend time and energy building personal projects. Show what you're interested in. Make that series and publish it. ** 23:56 Time to get serious about series of photos. Not sure if I'm up to doing this daily - but grouping a lot of photos with a theme and posting them together seems like the next progression for me. I want to tell stories. Taking photos is the best way I know how. (Writing is the second best way I'm aware of, but it takes a lot more time..)
