Shadows of Doubt

Will it go in or will she commit another fault? The shadows hide her face as she ponders this. Caught the ball as she was bouncing it. I felt like this shot would be better in black and white to convey doubt. The other players face is too far away, but he ponders the same question. I believe you need to breathe and simply focus on the task at hand. Forget the last shot and keep going. 

Pose of Victory

A tennis player showcases how he slices the ball. When it does it, it’s a pain to hit because you have to guess how the ball will land. We took a tennis class together, so I was able to see his grow from the beginning. I may edit this photo, I’m still experimenting since I want to improve as an artist in general. I’m still new to action photography, but whenever I am not playing I am capturing my friends playing. 

Natural frames with natural light

A frame within a frame featuring very little light. Working on a simple principle featuring things I normally take photos of but in a different way. I moved somewhere new and was inspired to capture it. It is very enjoyable to take photos even if some are bad, I will improve with each shot. My eyes are changing to suit my passions which helps me recognize better compositions.

Thinking about studying interior design a bit to better understand the inside of buildings. I will have to see if I can fit it into my schedule as taking photos, writing, other studying and doing social media is taking up all my time. I like the hustle but got to learn how to love it. Despite my struggles, I’m staying positive and not quitting even when the thought comes to mind. 

Stay true to who you truly are and never give up,

Into the Unknown

Traveling to sign paperwork and not knowing what kind of building I am walking into. Thus the dark shadows on the doors and how most of the second story windows don’t reflect anything. I like the shadow and how heavy the building feels. 

Working hard to go somewhere no one has been and leave a path. Got to do more than one step a day. Can’t live in the present anymore, I have to do more in my life and produce more. 

When Life is Cold

We have have a time in life when everything bad that could happen did happen. Right now, I am in this period. I have a lot of problems that are slowly crushing my shoulders with no real solution in sight. Thus this is why I decided to capture an appliance isle in a hardware store. It repersents the coldness of life through lifeless objects surrounded by steel. I feel a certain coldness from this shot like a few other of my photos. 

When life is cold, you can’t give up. Instead of sitting on my ass, I’m changing for the better. Going through self development and discovery while tackling each of my problems one at at ime. There are moments where I crash but I set up motivational objects all around me. My wallpaper for my Cellphone is a motivatonal quote, my tablet is the same as is my ps4. I have photos of my own hanging on my wall to remind me of my artistic goals. No where in my room or life can I be without being reminded of what I am suppose to be doing and why. You may slip but get up. If there is a wall, smash through the wall. It’s all a journey, so its not going to take a day to fully change but it all starts with one step one change. One simple change can lead to more small changes that end up becoming a big change. 

Baby steps turn into giant strides,

David

Be Different

I love taking shots of subjects that don’t “move”. I grew up taking shots like this and never sought to capture things that are extremely popular subjects to take photos of. I don’t try to be different, I just am. Instead of trying hard to be different just be yourself. 

Stay true to who you truly are,

David
