Hey, I'm Felipe, 21 yo, from Brazil. I'm an architecture final year student. It's my first film camera and I discovered my passion in analog photography through a friend named Fernanda (she knows how I love her). [Yashica fx- 3 super 2000, pro image 100]
Ever start a project and then halfway through change course? Slide for videos 😁 That’s the case with my full body portrait I started last month... (go back a few posts to see what I’m talking about) 😉 So, I couldn’t figure out why I wasn’t “loving” the way it was taking shape, and then realized I wanted it to be on something more durable, plus I wanted a wider skirt, and the canvas allowed for both those options. Now that I feel better about the direction this is heading, I’ll be sharing the ongoing process more consistently.
It’s interesting how sometimes you can envision exactly how a project will go from start to finish... but then others, well you’re just not sure. That’s been the case with this one, I guess because I’ve never done a full body self portrait. And any time you’re trying something new it’s best to be neutral about where it’s gonna take you... I was trying to force this art project for two weeks, not feeling it... and then was asking myself why. Once I let go of my preconceived idea.... things started to feel right. Does that make sense? Okay friends, well that’s my update... I hope your weekend is safe, peaceful and relaxing. ❤️ #roxymarj#selfportrait 🎼 song: “Teddy Bear’s Picnic” - Bing Crosby w/ Jud Conlon’s Rhythmaires & Victor Young & His Orchestra
