Earlier today, Facebook did one of those “let me remind you of something” posts and reminded me of this photograph I made about 8 years ago. It’s a really important photograph for me as this was one of the first times when I thought about maybe quitting my job some day and becoming a full-time photographer. It’s definitely a photograph I don’t identify with anymore in terms of style (there was a lack of a lot of photographic knowledge which I tried to hide with post-processing), but nevertheless, it’s a photograph I will always keep close to my heart as it pushed my life into a direction I am really grateful for!
And talking about photographic style, as I mentioned in the last few posts, I’m definitely going through a bit of a change with my way of thinking about photography and because of that I’ve been making an effort (which I hope I will continue for the next few months) to shoot very different kinds of subjects than what I normally shoot. The image above represents exactly that – a very early morning walk through Deira looking for interesting street subjects and learning to shoot more from the hip, rather than so structured and planned.
