Colours and Patterns

2016 – Project 52 / 52Frames / A Picture a Week Challenge

Week #8 – Complementary Colours

Week 08 - Complementary Colours: Getting dressed
Week 08 – Complementary Colours: Getting dressed

I’ve always loved the ‘sari’ (traditional dress of India). The variety of ways that we can tie one and establish so many different looks is quite amazing! However, one of the things I love the most about this dress is the details that can be found on one. For this week I chose to highlight some of the design work on one of my sari blouses while using the colours red and green to set it off. Yes, once again, the colours are not the focus for this challenge but background…

Week #9 – Patterns

Week 09 – Patterns: Constrictor

I have a love for nature and while on a walk with a friend found a lot in ‘nautre’. Some were more apparent than others. However, this was my favourite as the setting sun gave me such beautiful lighting.

52 weeks of me!

2016 – Project 52 / 52Frames / A Picture a Week Challenge

Week #1 – Self-portrait

Week 01, 2016 - Finding a balance
Week 01, 2016 – Self-portrait: Finding a balance

As is the custom, the first week of this challenge is to do a ‘self-portrait’. I’ve done a couple of these over the years but I always manage to hold a bit back. This is a favourite challenge of mine as it really makes me think about ‘who I am’ and try to represent this in one image.

Most people who now me would say that I’m a bubbly person, full of life – happy, optimistic, easy going, friendly… all those ‘sunshiny’ qualities. However, I do have a dark side that I tend to capture in self-portraits. It’s not pessimistic but it is a deep, contemplative side that embraces a darkness that might be troubling to some.

This year, I’m willing to crash through barriers and just discover who I am… Consider every image I take a ‘self-portrait’ in some way or another. Happy 2016 all!!!

What happened in August?

2015 – Project 52 / 52Frames / A Picture a Week Challenge

Now that I’ve finally managed to upload the images for July I can finish off August and I will be ‘caught up’ on my blog backlog…

Week 33 – Night Photography

This is definitely one of my favorite genres now. I’m definitely still developing the skills necessary for different settings but it doesn’t stop me. While most of my fellow framers were pointing their cameras to the sky and capturing amazing star trails and so forth, I decided to point min down from roof of a 4-story building. It was an overcast night and the light pollution caused the sky to have that tone. I liked the simpleness of this image.

Week 34 – Wabi Sabi

So, I have no idea what this theme was about. Google helped a bit but I don’t think I nailed it completely. According to research, wabi sabi comes from Japanese and basically looks at ‘beauty in transcendence.’ I’m just going to leave this here… I took this image from the train at one of the stops. It might be chaotic and it might not be desirable to all, but I found beauty in the doorway and the cloth used… I’ll have to try a bit more with this theme.

Week 35 – Fire

I love fire! I guess some might say I’m a bit of a pyromaniac. So, I was sad to realize that I missed the theme once again. However, here’s a picture of one of my friends from a photoshoot! Enjoy 🙂

Week 36 – Dreams and Fantasy

Some might say ‘another portrait’. However, those who know the backstory would know why I used this for the theme this week. This gentleman is one of the first professors for my department. This was him during our first ever Alumni meet as past students spoke about their time at university and what they’ve accomplished since then. He was thanked multiple times for his dedication. In a way, he’s seeing his dreams and fantasies as a teacher being realized…

Thank you Oanh for helping me out with this challenge (albeit at the last minute!).

I’ve never been big on model based photography but this week just called for that, in my head. I definitely wish I had more time this week to dedicate to the theme and my photography. I know I have a long way to go and I learned a lot as I was doing this shoot. I’ll probably try this again, but not in a hurry! 🙂

Here are some other images from this shoot:
