Meaning behind everything

architecture photography

I’ve been declaring my intentions every morning recently. Declaring a general theme for the photos I take during the day. Thus I can grow as an artist and photographer. It helps expose the stories I want to tell. 

This shot is basically about reflection of self. You can find unique aspects if you look at different angles and notice the little things that make the big elements. 

Taken with my Samsung Galaxy S3 on a cloudy day. 

Declare your intention,

David

Lonely road 

street photography

I attended a webinar on how to use photography to help people with depression and anxiety. I do suffer from depression but it’s not as bad as it used to be. I take photos that please me and each one has a certain meaning for me. I love to tell stories but i would rather show them. 

I’m on a path like the woman in the shot. It’s lonely, dark, and cold. But it’s the road I’ve chosen to go as it’s the path I have chosen to create. This photo represents the story of the path we must go through to get where we want to go. Often we are alone but that doesn’t mean you don’t have support. If you need it I’m sure there will be a hand to hold on. Real friends and family shows up when you truly need them no matter what. 

Go down your path and do better,

David

Unstoppable

You should be unstoppable you are motivated and dedicated to your craft/ or goal. You need support and you need that drive. Spend hours on your craft and you shall rise in skill and positive thoughts. You will be the best version of yourself all it takes is you to get started right at this moment. 

This is a wall you use to practice your tennis. The more you use it the better you get. Taken with my cybershot early in the day.

Be unstoppable my friend,

David

Wandering around

architecture photography, nature

Sometimes I simply keep it simple but I try not to do anything easy. Was exploring my college and find this building near the athletic area. It was behind a fence so I had to adjust the camera to take the shot without the fence intruding into it. 

I wanted to capture the lines and shadows present. I needed up enjoying the shadow more than the detail of the building. Why? Because I’m a weird person:p. 

Basically I like the position of the shadow and the presence of the tree in the back. This was taken with my Samsung Galaxy S3

Go explore your world,

David

Experiment

nature, street photography

I am always experimenting with anything creative rather just stick the same old thing. I love to capture normal things in different ways thus a black and white photo of wet roses. I love the shade of black and the detail of the water drops. 

Moral of the story. Experiment with your creativity and your selected crafts. Been heavily experimenting with editing techniques and thus becoming a better artist and hopefully storyteller. This shot remains me of a tv show called Cowboy Bebop.

Till next time,

David

Know your influences

nature

As a child I was inspired by anime being broadcasted by Adult Swim and other channels. When I grew up I fell in love with the beauty of cinematography. Especially when I saw still frames from black and white Japanese films. The construction of the scenes and use of the background was stellar. 
This was beauty in each shot this love was furthered when I started to which Hitchcock films. Everything in the shot is controlled and felt like it was a true photograph rather than a film. Thus helped me understand some of the choices I make and what I truly like. It helped me realize many things about myself and my life. 

You need to know who influences and most importantly why? Are you a dentist but all of your mentors are politicians maybe you have a strong interest to have a political career. Sometimes it truly makes you a better artist to understand what influenced your creativiy. 

Find your mentors,

David

Study smart not hard

architecture photography, interior architecture

Studying hard is irrelevant if you are not doing it right. Everyone has a different way of learning effectively. Some people are able to just grab a book off the shelf and simply jump into it. Others can’t do this, some need to listen to someone talk about the subject etc. Once you understand what style of studying suits you you will have an easier time studying and thus studying hard won’t apply to you anymore.
Took this inside of a college library. Wanted to capture the detail of the interior focusing on the desks and the space present all around them. This was done with my Samsung Galaxy S3.

Knowledge is power,

David
