X Marks the Spot

May 13th, 2009

My friend Burstmode stopped by earlier today (at this journal, not my house- although he’d be welcome anytime), and found an entry about coupons instead of what he had hoped to find, a photograph or two.

I commented to him that I’d dig around in my archives and find a photograph to post in his honor, and the following is what I came up with. I changed it from color to black and white, and when I did- the way the lighting was in the photo, it almost has an x-ray effect. I kind of like it just as it is, although I know improvements could have been made.

Burstmode and I share a love of photograhpy, and a love of macro photography. I always want to be ‘closer’ with each and every shot that I make- sometimes it works for me, sometimes it doesn’t, but I never stop trying. I could write more about how I feel about photography, and how it makes me feel as a human being, but it’s difficult to put into words that people would have difficulty understanding anyway- so I’ll just leave it at that I love it.

This year, I have plans to start developing more portriats- working with various lighting and backgrounds, and hope to experiment and come up with a few good shots from the ideas I have. I may or may not share them here- depending on the wishes of the subject matter themselves. I have a deep respect for a persons right to privacy, and lets face it- some people don’t want their faces plastered all over the internet, or even on my little space. I respect that, so it remains to be seen whether you’ll see them or not.

In the meantime- the shot I mentioned of a beautiful orchid.
