Night drawing...

Sunday. 3 A.M. Taking a break from drawing on the stone.
Looks like I will still have a long night (morning!) ahead of me *yawn*...
Why did I take Printmaking again?! And doing Lithography on top of that -_-;
Ahh, the espresso from earlier no longer has an effect on me now *pull out hair*
I can't go to sleep yet, but I'm so sleepy *yawn again*...
Oh well, lol.

She who yearns...

... for love

... for control

... and, for acceptance

I decided to do something with more fantasy elements, but my first attempt was not short on frustration. The ideas weren't quite thought out, the location I chose was just too tiny to do any sort of landscape pictures, without having a piece of wall or a electric plug somewhere in sight. I took the same kind of composition one after another, and my friend was frustrated for not being able to produce the kind of pictures she wanted to, but having to listen to my requests on and on. In short, both my model and I were disappointed and frustrated as neither one was able to do the sort of pictures we had in mind initially. The shoot ended early in silence *sighs*... but it was a great lesson for me, as a photographer, it'd be nice if my ideas are more concrete, and it's very important to establish a comfortable environment before shooting any serious photos, otherwise, both the photographer and the model will be reading one another's thinking and become so self-conscious... At least, we tried. This is the first, and there will be many more to come. This is one area I hope to explore more. Lots of thanks to be' Huong for putting up with me for almost two hours, in a tiny white room with no windows, and a grouchy and demanding photographer. And thanks to her for pointing out that I've been making the same kind of composition over and over, to be honest, it kinda hurts, but it's the truth... I've got so much more to learn.

Tựa cánh hoa rơi...

... like a rose petal in the wind

I was out and about on labor day, and took the camera with me for some quick snaps. This was a spur-of-the-moment sort of photo shoot, therefore there was very little preparation, though I guess we were lucky to arrive at Haymarket just in time for some gorgeous lights.

I love these indoor portraits, will try to photograph more indoor pictures when I have the time :).
I dislike how school and work consume most of my time for this hobby, but I'll be sticking with it no matter what.
