WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT ‘LADY BIRD’

‘Lady bird’ is a love letter in the form of a film. It’s about the love for the city of Sacramento, family and friends from a lost, struggling soul – Christine “Lady Bird”. Lady bird left me feeling like I’ve just watched a film that somehow managed to capture all of my feelings about growing up; like it somehow showed snippets of my life even though it took place on the other side of the world, with completely different people. Even the way the movie was filmed and the way the story drifted felt like my life… I watched this movie twice already, and will probably watch it more in the future, but it was the first time I’ve watched a film in an independent cinema, and it made the whole experience even more memorable. Going to an independent cinema doesn’t even compare to going to grand, popular and very futuristic-looking multiplexes. It adds so much to the experience, because when I walked into the building, I could feel the history of the place. It …

AN ART SKETCHBOOK FLICK THROUGH

I took a week break but now I’m back with awesome posts planned! I was always a creative individual. As a child I was always covered in colourful paint and create an endless collections of drawings. Before I knew what a camera was, I always used to draw. I didn’t care about how good or bad it was or what techniques I was using or how realistic it was… I just picked up a pencil or a brush and went for it. However as soon as I started school everything changed. Once someone started telling me what and how to draw I lost all my interest. I drew because I had to, not because I wanted to. It’s not like it didn’t bring me joy anymore, because it did, but I found myself only drawing for school. When I finished my Art GCSE, at the age 16, I felt relieved – I would never have to go to that class anymore or draw how the teacher told me to. But a few months passed and …

CAPTURING FEELINGS

One question that haunts me as a photographer is, “how do I capture the beautiful moments of my life? How can I document the place, the people and the feeling that creates a perfect moment?” It’s easy to take a photo – we do it all the time, it only requires one click on our phones, and we instantly have the option of sharing it with the rest of the world. But how do we take the perfect photo? The one that makes people feel something, and is that even possible? According to Jabez Hughes, there are three types of photography that exists: mechanical – a simple representation, art photography – where the photographer determines to diffuse his mind into objects that he takes a photo of, and the high-art photography – photographs with a purpose of stimulating the person who is looking at it. There is a big gap between the photos I currently take, and the photos I want to be taking, so this post if a sort of reminder to me as well …
