Took this shot while resting in my hotel room in Bodega Bay, California. Was trying to piece together a short photographic film about alcoholism. I still might do it but for now it’s a work in progress. The bottle is actually just a bottle of water. I don’t drink anymore nor does my friend. However, my friend was on the level on being an alcoholic so I thought he would be the perfect model for this shot.
Again another shot in the hotel room. Was trying to find good angles and the right poses for this particular area of the room.
I like this shot a lot but I wish I did something to the windows to add more of a horror element. I did end up drawing a smiley face on the window for the hell of it. It wasn’t until I started to edit the photos did I realize the horror opportunity.
The last shot of this set. I like this shot only due to my friend’s expression with his eyes and mouth. It was a great shot, I don’t remember what we were talking about it but we did drive a long way so we were both tired. I believe you can truly see emotion in this shot and that is what I chase after.
Doing my best to evolve as a writer and photographer. I have some things like social anxiety to overcome but I am making the effort. I’m going to start to focus on editing more and trying to learn to retouch photos. I can see how I can improve my shots with better editing. Going to try to branch out into interior photography as well. I’m still exploring this bittersweet world of photography and I hope that I can reach the end of the path without giving up even if I never make enough to go full time. I rather try and fail than not try at all. I will be the greatest photographer that I can be and will not stop until my last breath.
