I decided to start blogging about my photography in the hopes I can meet up with similar minded folk.
All of my Burn The Witch Photography is taken on my smartphone (Sony Xperia) and for a while I really didn’t feel comfortable calling myself a photographer..or rather an amateur photographer.
And then I thought balls to that, I’m going to show people my photos, they got a good reaction from my friends (biased as they me be) and despite some self doubt I made a Facebook page, a Twitter account, a Flickr and Foap account. I was going to show people my art..even though I cringe a bit when I call it that (I’m working on it!).
I like to take photos when I’m walking my dogs in the woods, so my photographs are mostly of trees but I edit them (on my smartphone) and add a magical touch.
I have so many ideas for my photos beyond just prints but for now I’m happy to post my pictures. I entered a photography competition for Dark Beauty Magazine and it was accepted! I’ve got a few votes already but if you’ve got a spare minute please vote for me or one of the other very talented photographers. You can vote here. You are allowed to enter 2 photos, you can vote for the other photo here.
These are the photos I entered. I think they give you a good idea of the sort of photography I do.
I love taking pictures of trees, they never look the same twice. There’s no such thing as an ugly tree and the more time I spent taking photos of trees the more I really got into it. I fell in love with trees, which sounds so pretentious but I’m always listening to music on the dog walk and I promise you, with the right soundtrack be it natural woodland sounds or a band you love if the mood is right you feel something, a connection. I love editing my photos, it’s so relaxing and and the same time creative so it’s the best of both worlds.
When I post photos on Facebook or wherever, I like to post a quote or lyric that I think fits with the image. This blog means I can get a bit more personal and talk about things a bit more indepth.
I look forward to building a #CreativeCoven with people who make the sort of art I like. Things on the dark or mysterious side, the night owls, the coffee addicts and together, talk about and promote some cool shit.
