this is a softer expression of eleanor veter. this one took longer to edit, so i’m just now posting it. I’m still mostly busy with music, so photos are done very selectively these days. thanks for watching - mojokiss
i edited this one a lil different than others - every picture just gets me a different way and that bleeds into how i interpret the colors of the edit - roarie - mojokiss
hope you like this. I just got my studio set up a little bit and here is my first new old scan. i have a lot of old film im goin thru. this is crash. my index finger hurts so bad i can hardly type with it today. not sure why. too much coffee.
I’ve decided to start promoting myself as a professional photographer. I’ve done a few weddings, gone through the publication process with magazines, built a network and put in 5-6 years of practice, hard work, sacrifice. I’ve learned how to take cameras apart, put them back together better than they were. I’ve shot with both film and digital, mostly film. I have the camera I never thought I’d have, two cameras I never thought I’d have… and I’m starting to learn how to compose, expose, process, and publish without messing it up along the way. I have a standard method now from start to finish. Only just tonight did I finally figure out one of the last things that was bugging me… and it was a problem in my digital not my film. My scanner was applying an Epson color space or something to my scans and I needed to switch it to sRGB. It’s like I had cancer or something and now I’m cured. What else… well another thing is I’m not all into shooting alt girls anymore. I still do it, ya know, but not because they are alt, but because they are my friends and I think they are pretty. I dont count piercings or read tattoos, I never cared about that stuff, just if the girl looked good wearing them. It was a visual thing to me, and form thing. Now I’m also more into the story behind the image, and the subtle questions the image poses. I don’t care yet what those questions are, just that they are there. I dont want to shoot anything too obvious. I want it to grab you, but then take time to sink in, if it ever does. I dont know what I’ve been doing for the last 5-6 years except one thing - trying to learn how to be a photographer. Everyone made it about so many things. All I ever cared about was getting better at photography and shooting people with my camera, lights, whatever. For a while it seemed to get simpler. It seemed like I was being more complicated than I needed to be, and for a while I was. I was tryin to do too much that i didnt even need to do. But then I let go and played with just natural light, and came back to the techniques fresh. Now its like I’m free. And what’s so bad about promoting yourself? No one really knows much about me, who I am, that I exist. I’ve always hidden. I’ve known better than to jump at too many opportunities. I’ve starved myself willingly because i haven’t been ready. How could I be ready when I don’t have my analog digital conversion ironed out? I could still shoot… no troubles there besides getting a sharp focus, and remembering what iso i had in my camera. But when it came to turning that film into a print, or a final product, i had some problems. I’m finally getting there. I’m like… not a kid anymore, at all. I have to do something with my life, with my investments in photography. I do feel like I’ve been on a merry go round. But I’m excited, and that is the best feeling ever lately. I’m excited like a kid going to the beach for the first time, or the rocky mountains. Wow, like another world waiting right in front of you.
