Did my first shoot of 2019 yesterday with @mayamacpherson_. I’m restarting my feed because the old edits no longer reflect where I am now and it’s keeping me from moving forward. I’m going to be flooding my feed with photos from this shoot because I just need to get some movement going. I never gave up trying to get the colours in my photos right and I feel like I finally have my edits down now. It’s taken a long time for me to get here. I don’t think I could be doing photography for over a decade if I wasn’t in love with it, or if it wasn’t essential to my mental and emotional wellbeing. You can try your hardest to get something right for the longest time and still not get it, but all it takes is for things to click one day and it’ll feel as if you’ve been doing it that way your whole life. It’s like riding a bike. It’s been a good journey of growth for me and I just want to keep learning and never live a day of my life on autopilot mode. Here’s to more cinematic edits, and a new start.
Kanchanaburi, in Myanmar border, is home to the famous Bridge River Kwai. During WW II, Japan constructed the meter-gauge railway line from Ban Pong, Thailand to Thanbyuzayat, Burma. This is now known as the Death Railway.
Do notice finer details like statue of ‘Buddhist Goddess of Mercy’ in the middle of the frame and a man fishing at the right side of the image.
I never knew a person sitting for fishing can maintain the same still pose naturally for atleast 5 long exposure shots that I took. So sure I am that he would have continued being a statue whole night 😅
