“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.” ~Frida Kahl
it’s that time again. time to showcase a few of my very, very favorite freelensed photos that these lovely artists shared on The Freelensed facebook page. Thank you so much for sharing a little glimpse in to your daily lives. Every single one of these make me feel as though I am there… thank you for allowing that feeling of escape for a few moments ❤
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.
