The Waters by Brooke Shaden
After spending a lot of today watching Brooke Shaden’s videos and looking through her images (like the one above, click through to get to her photography on Flickr - it’s breath-taking), I got what I like to call ‘the photographical itch’ - I want to create, I want to bring to life something fantastical, something that sits on the borders between the real and the imagined. I have so many ideas, so many things that I want to do and I think it’s time to start creating them.
I love images that leave you wondering ‘how?’, I love images that make you ask ‘why?’ and that tell a story - even if it’s an abstract story.
I’ve been holding off, perhaps out of fear or doubt in my ability - maybe, these things are what I need. It would be wonderful to feel completely confident in myself but maybe I need to create these nervous images and ideas that I’m not sure about. It may not work but that’s okay; it’s experience. Everything is experience. Sometimes it’s best to just close your eyes and jump.
So that’s what I’m going to do. This summer, I’m setting a challenge for myself. I will create magic or I will try and learn and do better the next time. I’m hoping for the former.
Thank you, Brooke Shaden - you’re an inspiration. Let’s see how this goes, shall we?
