Reintroduce myself: for the naysayers

in #introduceyourself6 years ago

I know there are followers there on my list, that doesn’t really believe I am the person behind the camera.

I also know that many people out there even think that I am not the one in the pictures and that I’ve done nothing to prove my identity, be it only steemian way.

So to all of you naysayers, I give you my first, EVER, photoshoot! And because it is about me I decided to have a version of each photo I take, in monochrome. I like to play with compositions and digital manipulation sometimes.
I took the shoot indoors last night and I took the time to make the best compositions I thought suits me.


I am quite an introvert because of my former way of life. I am still learning to open up to new people. Though I ask for the opposite when I shoot, I am shy in front of the camera.
During my younger years, back home, I saw the same things for hours, days, months. The trances I was sometimes getting out of Church and prayer, took me far away in my mind. I traveled a lot back then, somehow in my own virtual reality.
Today I have the luxury to discover those places really exist. While my television access was strictly under control and in very small doses, somehow my own mentality took me to places I never saw until later.

Through the lens of the camera, I find different situations, different styles of life that both interest me and frighten me. That's why I buy different lenses. That's why I need to buy a tele as I said earlier.

Now this post for me was a challenge. My appartment is pretty small and I had to find different interesting situations in which to pose. Both me and my tripod went through a series of critical situations during the shot. What's more to add is that I think that this could be a self portrait photo-challenge and maybe, why not, I could make it once I have some more steem power.

I have to say that this steemit thing got me all excited lately and I am starting to take it more seriously. So I'm waiting from you guys to give more feedback on what kind of photography YOU think I could take on and why not, point challenges for me. I'm still young on the platform and I'm always looking to explore more on socialising in this new, cool way.

Haters gonna hate... and lovers gonna love :). Don't worry about the haters we lovers outnumber them on steemit

Lovely post. I find that many photographers, myself included, find it difficult to feel comfortable in front of the lens. Probably, because we dont trust anyone else but ourselves to take the shot. Anyway, seeing your self portraits I can say that you have no reason to doubt yourself. All the best.

Welcome! I look forward to learning more...

The thing about naysayers @vargart is that they are only relevant if you respond to them. Cut your own path and leave them bleating behind you like sheep.

well said.

I love these pictures @vargat, you're just so far away, I woulda booked a session. nice meeting you here on Steemit

Hi Vargart, do you enjoy shooting in nature? One thing I haven't done yet is trying to shoot at night with over exposure.

You should do more selfies, you seem to have a very natural appearance on camera. Plus I'll follow you if you keep doing that! Do you have someone helping you take the photos or do you use timers?

I'll check your blog posts out. I also do photography btw if you want to check out my most recent.
