I haven't blogged in awhile. Sometimes I'm in the mood and other times I feel like I'm just tooting hot air to anyone that will read the words I write. I'm in between road trips right now...the last one I did I still have a ton of film I need to develop from but my lab here only runs twice a week.
I love shooting roadside attractions and things that make you laugh or go “WTF” lol. I also like moody, dramatic, almost horror like images. I guess that makes me kind of a retro/rockabilly/goth kind of lomo girl I don’t know. Then there’s the architecture, the landscapes, the travel images. I feel the need to shoot every hotel in Vegas and the insides so it can be brochure-like. I’ll be at a roadside oddity and want to capture the same image in b/w, cross process and with different cameras.
I’m interested in doing portrait work but afraid to ask people to do it for me. I feel like I’m intruding when I get in their faces with a camera. How does one go about this “shooting shyness” as I call it?
Candid street photography is something I feel I could be good at, but when people stare at me with a camera and ask me to go away or not take pictures it’s pretty depressing. Anyone else have this experience? Discuss.
