chase it before its gone too far


After being away for the week from the countryside, it feels like things have completely changed around me. i don't think my feet are on the ground. You know the feeling when you feel like there are too many things in your head to be thinking clearly about one thing???

i'd been eyeing these fields forever now and have never had the guts to go there and start taking pictures like mad. but i saw they've started harvesting it so thought today was the best day to go. plus the sun was out! plus my nephew wanted to go and help me =)
i don't think i would have gone into the field if it weren't for him.

these aren't my favorite pictures...but then again, i think it reflects my state right now. i'm in a daze. i'm torn apart. so i can't be my best. i hope there's more sun where you are!

clich├ęs are fun


im going a little overboard with the film/vintage kinda feel today. i guess the grass IS always greener on the other side. i love the feeling of film images. it's almost unfair how (i feel) it looks like every film image can look awesome. 

these are the last images of Andrea that i'll upload from this session. although i can't promise so. i'm definitely looking forward to shoot some more. esp since we already discussed a little about concept for the next shoot. also i'm getting a couple of challenges from friends among which include emoting a favorite song through an image and shooting someone through skype.

i'm listening to this song today:

you know the kind of people who are just too cool to be anything else but a bartender? That's how i always felt about Kasia. She's Polish and she has a golden tooth.

we met at a norwegian language course !!

she bang


Andrea and i met off of this is the first time i shot a complete stranger. and it was complete fun. it was handy to have discussed our concepts a little bit beforehand. but most of the ideas happened on location. i promised i'd take only 2 hours but we ended up taking 3.
the best thing was that Andrea was up for anything. that water looks serene in the picture but to get there was seriously not a thing for the weak-at-heart.i love how we both liked the same shots. overall SO happy that i did this. can't wait to shoot more with her. <3

In the secret valley

there where there was no one
not even me
i finally found peace....

It's almost everyday and only natural that we think a lot about ourselves. But in this quest of finding the best for us, we often forget to see the bigger picture. that we are small. that these things we are after do not build our lives. that these to-do lists we tick off do not fill the void in us.
so today i take a step back. i walk without thinking about the things i did today. i listen to the songs without trying to relate them to me. i just listen to the lyrics. and it felt good. i stopped worrying, even just for a little while. nothing had anything to do with me. i was free.

you are more beautiful than you think

it's always a nice surprise to see people change while in front of the camera. i know of SO many people who think they don't have what it takes to be great in pictures. but with a little direction and warming up, i love how their personality comes out. that's why i love taking portraits. the beauty is not in the settings or the apparels but how the person brings out his/her innermost confident self. i love bringing that out in people. and the greatest feeling is when they see themselves in the pictures and get surprised. Always worth the effort.

i wish i could do that more often with strangers though. i see so many gorgeous persons on the street and wish i could go up to them and ask them for a picture. in that sense, i wish i were working for a talent recruitment company or something. as i've read somewhere, the worst thing that could happen is they say no. but that idea always holds me back! i need to work on that.

summer? What summer?
