A Creator Needs Only One Enthusiast to Justify Him

Pretend Photographer


"Pretend Photographer," I like that title. I have always had a hidden interest for portrait photography but never got around to pursuing it. The photos above are self-taken, which is kind hard to do but the outcome tends to have such  interesting composition, just the way I like it. In high school my art teacher literally hated when we put our subject in the center of the paper she said "it is boring composition," and she is right. You see, the second photo is off-centered and cut off a bit but ended up very eye-catching. I like to think of myself as a pretend photographer because I have never jumped on this interest before, therefore it is fairly new.  I add many textures to my photos to make them the way I like them, usually with an antique, grungy, worn out, water stained look. I have a film SLR camera but never use it. I take all of my photos with an ordinary digital camera and distort them to fool others. When it comes down to it, these photos were only taken to showcase what I can do and hopefully send local models my way...decided to post these on my blog to share with you some of my hidden passion.

Hopefully...you like?

You obviously have natural talent. I hope you develop it. There are many valuable lessons we can learn to improve our images.

I agree that the composition of the 2nd is a bit more interesting, though I love the effects you have touched upon in both.

You're so pretty :)

I love that backdrop...and the fun layers and filters! I love that effect, too...but all I have is Elements 2....I haven't found any aged looking borders and layers like that :(

Advertise on Craigslist for models and trade for pics. I did this when I wanted certain photos for references :)
