To continue the self-portrait series, I introduce you to episode 4. For more than a year and a half, the COVID pandemic had been raging. We have to be at home a lot at this period, so we normally pick up a new activity or do new activities that we haven't done before. This was the time when I purchased my first camera, which opened up a whole new world for me. I'm started to teach myself how to take better images, and since I'm at home a lot, self-portraits are an excellent method to practice.
These are some of the best creative photos taken by me, I think. Some of them are from last year, some are from just a few months ago. I arrange them in order by time to compare how my style has changed. Enjoy!
These three were captured in the initial wave of COVID in Vietnam in March of last year. At the time, I was figuring out my style, and I wanted my images to look precisely the way I wanted them to, distinct and different from everyone else's. And I realize that all of our ideals are based on someone's ideal that we have seen before. So I strive to make it more "my" on the inside.
These three were still taken in July of last year. That was a remarkable occasion because I was stuck in Da Nang alone during COVID's second wave. So I'm stuck at home 24 hours a day, and photography is the only thing that can get me out of it.
And these are from this year. After watching a video called: "The Healing Power of Self Portraits" - Sean Tucker, I'm getting more into portrait photography, therefore I've got more bravery to attempt new things like half-naked in the middle of the woods, which takes a lot of courage for me.
