i’m really asking. because i’ve now been futzing with it for over an hour and no longer have eyes that can see clearly. so, i ask: what do you think?
okay, lemme cut to the chase: does it bother you that the bee’s … face? … the front of the bee? … is blurry/obscured? because i think that’s what’s bothering me. and that’s not something i think i can fix in photoshop. no matter how hard i try. some photoshoppers might be THAT good. i am not.
so here’s my overwhelming personal dilemma of the day: the reason i don’t have more stuff done is that i spend too much time obsessed with the minutiae of getting it all perfect. however, if i don’t pay attention to such things, i feel somehow less myself. like i’m not trying hard enough. like i’m not doing my best. like, in order to finish this photograph, i NEED to learn more photoshop. or i need to quick! take an art class so i can draw the bee’s … face?
this is me. this is my devil. the details. the art of it all. putting it together. over and over again. until it’s perfect. to me.
my boys brought me some leaves to play with today:
also working on the bookmark series and the notecard series … had hoped to have put some up for sale by now in my etsy store, but life happened. aiming for mid-october now. stay tuned! here’s a sample:
i am fascinated by reflections. from landscapes to self portraits and stuff in between, finding and photographing reflections gives me an instant perspective change. my own journey through the looking glass. my world is transformed. my body is transformed. my mood is transformed. full reflections. partial reflections. infinite possibilities.
anyway, reflection photos:
(all images except the self portraits will be available for purchase from my etsy store soon!)
