The Changing Seasons is here again. Like they say: “new year, new possibilities”, or perhaps you’re one of those people who don’t want to get out of your comfort zone? In that case: “New year, same, same”. Either way you’re welcome to join this challenge that will run throughout the year.
How you interpret “the changing seasons” is all up to you: a painting or perhaps a digital manipulation? One photo, a gallery with plenty of photos? Photos of the same place each month or different spots? A recipe (with an illustration photo that you’ve shot), your aging face, your declining health? Street, flash or portrait photography?
Be creative or don’t.
Mara Eastern said in a post on my other blog that she wanted to see some nude dudes. Well, tomorrow I’m shooting a friend (he won’t be nude – sorry Mara), so today I decided to clean the camera, test the flash, charge the batteries etc, etc. The photographer’s Mise en place. Which again led to this self-portrait.
Mise en place (French pronunciation: [mi zɑ̃ ˈplas]) is a French culinary phrase which means "putting in place" or "everything in its place." It refers to the set up required before cooking, and is often used in professional kitchens to refer to organizing and arranging the ingredients (e.g., cuts of meat, relishes, sauces, par-cooked items, spices, freshly chopped vegetables, and other components) that a cook will require for the menu items that are expected to be prepared during a shift. - Wikipedia
Akrobaten Bro: Went on a photo walk and made a new acquaintance here the other day.
My entry for this weeks photo challenge: Anticipation
Edit: Here’s a lullaby to go with it.
I’ll admit that this portrait is shot using artificial light. I might also have altered the image slightly using software. If you ever come across a woman looking like this, then quickly head for a new horizon..
