I chose this theme because it speaks to me at the point I’m in currently. I wanted my photos to convey a sort of fun-loving and reckless feel, yet at the same time hold a longing for something more. That’s what this means to me; we (as in my generation of youth) are so used to following rules and trying to fit molds that others put us in, so sometimes it leads to rebellion. This is what I’m hoping to convey through my photos.
In my creative process, I usually didn’t think of a lot of the shots prior to seeing them in person. Once I saw a location, I would know if I wanted to shoot it or not. Most of my decisions came as what way I would shoot from, what exposure/shutter time/contrast I would use. I really enjoy shooting from unusual viewpoints because it helps me convey how I want my photos to show an unusual perspective of life.
