I cannot believe how long has it been since I last wrote a journal on my deviantArt; one more month and it'll be two years! Can you believe it? You should because I checked the date. To my dear watchers, if you are still there, how have you been? I hope all is well for you. As for me, I am very well. We may not be half way through this year and I've experienced new things, both good and bad. I lost someone very dear to me and the painful part about it is I cannot go back to see him one last time. A relative sent us a video but until now, I can't bring myself to watch it. Fortunate things happen to me and my family after our loss. But of course, it's still does not cover up the lingering pain and guilt.
Art used to be a hobby for me. Photographing small objects and children was fun but as years go by, the frustration of not being able to do what I want the most took me. I did not touch my camera for almost half a year on 2011, save for the moments of my brothers that I just had to document. I don't see any improvements on my art. They don't speak to me and it angers me. So I made a vow last year that I will photograph people and people only for 2012. I will work harder and interact more with people. My being introvert will get me nowhere, I said.
2012. I lost someone while I gained new friends. I am a major in Graphic Design and taking a Commercial Photography class every Friday. The instructor is a fashion photographer much to my delight since that is the type of photography that I always want. He told us stories of his twenty years experiences on the industry; he gave us an overview of what its like, and how to get people to like you and your art. Since my interest lies in fashion, I always have questions for him which he never fails to answer. I began to scout for models online and on the street. Despite how nerve-wracking it was for me to approach a total stranger, I did it because it was the only way for me break my own shell that I incarcerated myself in. My obsession over photography is far stronger now compared to how it was when I first started. I am more confident with my new work because it is what I want or rather, close to what I have in mind. Because of the changes on my art style, I created a new devianArt account solely for it. So far I only have three new photographs put up for I want most of them to appear on my blog. I will not be posting new images here anymore. I hope you my watchers will support the new me.
Forgive me if it looks so empty to you, I am still working on it.
