First post I’ve done in days where it’s not after 10.30pm.
Today’s topic had me take out my gorillapod and get some faceless selfies.
Solitude is a state of seclusion or isolation, i.e., lack of contact with people. It may stem from bad relationships, deliberate choice, infectious disease, mental disorders, neurological disorders or circumstances of employment or situation.
I don’t have any of the above but I wanted my photo to look like I was lonely and isolated from society.
I look myself down to our local oval and tried a few photos sitting on stairs, park benches and against light poles. Nothing really looked spectacular and well, lonely. I then walked around to the field where I like to star gaze and walked past a horse yard. It was bland, dusty and covered in weeds. Perfect for a shot where I was supposed to look lonely and secluded.
I took a few closer up with my back to the camera but it was still quite bright and cheery. I moved further out and sat down with my back to the camera. I then added a few gradients in photoshop to make the mood of the shot dark and less cheery.
Here is my favourite final edit.
Below are a few other pictures I took but didn’t bother editing.
