As a photographer I have always wondered what I liked to shoot. I finally realized that I was intrigued by darker photography. Whether it be about lighting and interesting shadows, to dark fairy tale story montages, to emotional pictures, I love it all.
Lately I have been going through some struggles. I have many things going on through my head. It’s not easy, and it is sometimes difficult for me to figure out what it is that I need at the moment. Sometimes I feel in need of help, sometimes I feel hopeless, other times I feel fearless, alone, at peace, happy, stressed, lost, and confused. There is so much that goes on, and I wanted to show that. These are all pictures of me, and they all show the different parts of me.
I did this in my living room with a snoot on a flash and thought to myself’: “I started out the semester doing a SQUIBB, might as well finish it the same!” I also did very minor editing. I enhanced my eyes in Photoshop, and I took out one little blemish that was bothering me and was very distracting. I left all other imperfections because that was part of what I wanted: I wanted to show my imperfections and how they make me beautiful.
