I'm having lots of fun and adventures shooting some self portraits just for me, this was one of the more adventurous though..
I've wanted to take photos at this shell of a house for years and I recently plucked the courage to go do it (the sunshine had made me giddy)! I loaded the pram with my cameras, tripod, wattle wreath and my almosttwoyearold, off we trudged but when I got there I almost chickened out as it's on a main road, it was broad daylight so everyone could see me and trespassing made me feel a bit naughty. I recently read a quote which is something along the lines of - if you makes you feel like throwing up, do it. So with that quote in mind I psyched myself up and got out the tripod then a family (yes, a family of 4 or 5) came to ask me what I was doing! Turns out they own the property, I asked if it was okay to use the walls as a backdrop, which it was, phew! I was relieved to have their permission. I would love to shoot some more work there so hopefully that doesn't push the friendship too much.....
I love the final image (above), it is what I envisioned plus it's exactly what I wanted to express.
Geeky stuff: photos were shot on Canon 7d and Diana cameras
