I always find myself holding photo sessions amidst the woods or some place taken over by nature. In a previous post, I mentioned how nature has this calming effect over me – as if an affinity for it is present in me and I don’t find this hard to believe. The greens give a “I’ve got my shit together, thank you very much” sense to my photos and, yes, I take it as a compliment. I’ll stop babbling here. Toodles.
Jolted by the intensity of the wind swung by life, I’ve been in a rut; in a slump; stuck, if you will. Things haven’t been clear (when have they ever been?). Especially with the type of photography I want to do. There’s fashion, travel, photojournalism, and fine art. I simply can’t decide on what I want to specifically focus on. I know, I know, I shouldn’t succumb to society’s rule on just doing one thing. As much as I’d love to be a jack of all trades, it wouldn’t hurt to be a queen of one kingdom for once, you know?
Anyhow, I’m babbling. Here are a few photos I have re-edited in lieu of the self-teaching I am doing for Adobe Lightroom filters. This self-teaching is being done just so that I don’t impulsively buy filters available online for thousands of pesos. Sure it’s an investment! But it’s not the investment I need to make at the moment.

We are our own entity, our own mind, our own soul. We have a voice too loud to ignore, so speak up.
We are not to be shamed on by society for we are society. We are the people. We matter.
Women will not be chained down by irrational proclamations, made by the small-minded few. We will do what we want when we want it and how we want it.
You are woman. You are strength.
