Today I am back with something a little different. It is not an update on how I am doing as an AuPair or on new adventures, it is more about a new passion of mine. As I already wrote in a previous blog post I’m getting more and more into photography. But that is not only because of the beautiful landscape Ireland has to offer as a motive to shoot, but also because I can somehow create my own art. I don’t need someone who takes my picture when I am travelling, because I can do it myself and at home I can play with different equipments to make more artistic photos.
I already showed some shots of myself while travelling, but I couldn’t share some very different photos I took, so I’ll use this blog post to share how I am creating art at the moment, not only behind but infront the lense.
And why going somewhere, when you find the most photogenic little spots in your own home.
Sometimes I can hear my dads voice in my head „Always find a good lightsource and play with it“ so why not play with the shadows as well? (well I am still working on the facial expression … but to my defense, a laughing one just wouldn’t have made it as dramatic, right?)
I am just glad my host parents were at work at that day, because how weird would it have been for them, finding me sitting in the shower with a little toy-cup drizzeling water down the shower door, just to get the shot, I had envisioned in my head. #Ididitforthephoto
„In the zone“
It was also fun capturing another passion of mine, which grows bigger day by day as well.
My latest series was one I wanted to do for years, but never had the right lights or camera for it. Who knew that some little fairy lights for 4€ could make me so happy.
I know this was a very different post to all the others I’ve posted so far and probably not everybodys cup of tea, I suppose, but it’s just something very fascinating and fun for me at the moment and I wanted to share that somehow and thought why not here.
Next week I am going to be back again with something AuPair related and exciting again. Absolutely looking forward to the following weekend.
