have you heard of the concept wabi sabi? wabi sabi is based on the concept of the discovery of beauty in the imperfection. whenever i see a freelensed photo i think about this concept and how it relates to this concept and to us as artists. letting go of perfection, creating what our heart feels instead of what our mind or a client tells us to. shooting without thinking, just shooting with feeling from our soul. taking the time to breathe and to be present. i love this quote i recently came across:
sometimes i have to remind myself
that i don’t have to do
what everyone else
every week the beautiful work that graces the page of The Freelensed facebook page just reiterates that, that is what you’re doing. these are my favorites of the week. thank you for inspiring me. xo,
With new blossoms and longer days, spring seems perfect for freelensing. But then we quickly move into summer, and the unlock of our lens gives more depth to the campfires and river days, and children playing late into the night. Then we roll into fall and the setting sun is even warmer. We photograph the details of crisp leaves and golden light. And with winter, rosy cheeks buried between hats and bundled scarves. Every season becomes the best for freelensing…somehow it takes a firm hold as we let go of perfection.
Thank you for continuing to share your images and we look forward to seeing them with each changing season.
First off, let me say sorry!! Sorry that I flubbed the post and didn’t get it out this past Friday! –Now we are into May and our next Freelensed Friday is days away! But I couldn’t pass by all these beautiful images from last week. They are just way too gorgeous!
