‘Negative space’ – what a loaded term.
Luckily in photography it’s an awesome concept.
Unluckily in everyday life right now, didn’t have a of time to explore it. Went with the first idea that came to mind.
Week 30: Negative Space
Seeking: a partner
Lots and lots of talk of men this week.
Week 29: Men
Be the kind of man you want your daughter to date.
After attempting a lot of set-up shots that just didn’t work, I made a Hail Mary pass when, while juggling 3639846 things, I noticed Bebe standing at the window.
Week 28: Women
After three years of working from home, I went back to an office this week. The week that war threatens my kids, I’m no longer a 5 minute drive from them. I’ve been struggling with this fact, and then I remember my original intent: I can show them, my boy or girls, what a woman can do. A woman can work, and parent, and move, and care, and thrive, and love, all in one day, all in the same moment. Since having a second daughter four months ago, the kind of example I set them has been a constant thought. And then there are moments when I see how my older girl can move, can care, can thrive, can love, that I realize… she’s on the path to becoming that kind of woman, too.
A spray bottle of water was used in the making of this photo.
Week 27: Wet
“I like pleasure spiked with pain…” – Red Hot Chili Peppers
This was a total shot in the dark for me. Week 26′s theme – which was a big ole photographic list of concepts like ‘The Golden Ratio’ ‘Fibonacci’ and ‘The Golden Spiral’ – way too resonant of mathematics to my brain.
I was so concerned with getting the theme right, that my picture loses.
I gotta be honest. I totally did not understand the Golden Ratio. I read a handful of pages about it, looked at plenty of images, and I still don’t get it. I think I’m overthinking it. So I kinda went with some kind of idea of what I thought it might be, which I still can’t even articulate.
Week 26: The Golden Ratio
“If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe.” – Carl Sagan
True story. Way back in the day, when I had my first full time job in Israel, and I was a part time student, living in a raggedy apartment with great friends… this is what I had to come home to.
And now… you can’t possibly beat now.
