Skylar, 2016 // I'm always hesitant to post shots that I've edited like this because I know it doesn't match my normal style and that bothers me. I'm annoyed at myself because of this so I'm posting this to make a point. Most of the time I like making images that are smooth, crisp, and yet still soft. But there are other times when I want harsh grain, movement, action, saturation, and darkness. I don't know why but I feel like there's this unspoken rule, that as a photographer you just can't do both?? I feel like everyone (including myself) is just so obsessed with maintaining a certain level of aesthetic and so we pick one style and it dominates us creatively! But honestly y'all, the best thing about being a photographer is that the only rules that you have to follow are the ones you make yourself. And even then, sometimes it's good to break those self-made rules too.
Admittedly, I'm still kind of nervous post this. They aren't perfect images, but they feel right to me and I'm going to try my best to hold on to that. Note to self: remember that people aren't perfect, memories aren't perfect, life certainly isn't perfect, and photos don't have to be either!
