Lifestyle: How Photography Got Me Through Some Of My Most Stressful Days .

Thursday, February 11, 2021

It's been a while guys and I do apologize, thankfully most of you know how hard it is to multitask and juggle so much, but I always say we each have to find a way to cope, no matter what it is you do make sure it's something that keeps you positive, optimistic and ready to seize the day. 
Strange as it may be to some - I have discovered that photography helps me stay calm and distracted.
Photography has been my go-to medication lol, I even decided to give in to my cravings for darker aesthetics and I realised I was enjoying it more and more, every time I set up a little section for photos and take the picture with the darker filter, etc it gave me this satisfaction (Its like watching ASMR videos) that satisfaction you get.

Photography is the story I fail to put into words, In photography, there is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality. To me, Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever, It remembers the little things, long after you have forgotten everything that is why when taking a photo appreciate and enjoy that moment.
Many people think it's just a simple act when one brings out a camera to take pictures. Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.
Like this lovely quote i love from The Late Karl Lagerfeld - What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.”
You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved, the things have seen around you, the feelings you have felt on a deeper level and you bring all that into one photo (That is magic-Trust Me). This is how I cope when it all gets too much and overwhelming, I just whip out my old school camera and take photos of anything that inspires me or has a meaning to me.
No one know tomorrow or how long this pandemic,lockdown and phase will be but if we don't all start finding ways to soothe our minds and anxiety.
This was just meant to be a short post so you all know I am still here, I have not abandoned my readers, it's just I am trying to Mix n Match and Merge other projects together and it's time consuming.
