I think the fear of creating bad stuff, bad art, bad images is the worst of all fears for a creative person, professional or amateur....
Husband Best Friend, Father, Amateur painter, Creator of stuff, Lover of the sea. Human Being, generally rational, forgetful, careless and sometimes totally irresponsible.
Rest of the time, I am a Maternity, Newborn, Family and Baby Photographer based in Hyderabad at Clickbaby Photography.
Since I have had consciousness, my happiness has always been in creating… Whether it is a painting, a sketch, a photograph of my little ones, a simple life quote with some wordplay, it is in creation that all my happiness lies.
My journey with making images started in 2010 with my first baby purely out of necessity because there were no baby photographers around. It was not a thing… I’m fairly new and consider myself still a learner in the craft. But I’ll tell you this, life has absolutely changed since I started seeing the world through my lens.
Photography has made me see the beauty in the world around us and also share with the world what I see.
I have always loved to paint. Since childhood. Even as a child I always wanted to be a painter. Needless to say, things didn’t turn that way. But since I left my job, I have tried to rekindle my relation with brushes and canvas. I aim to make some art every now and then, an aim in which I fail regularly but will like to do better.
So coming to the point why this blog. Why this blog now…
Because I am scared.
I’m just going to say it. Maybe if I keep saying it aloud it will become less scary. Maybe if I say it aloud it will increase the odds of it happening. Maybe if I say it aloud it will work. Or maybe I will just fail with all of you watching. Okay, I thought about it and I’m still going to say it.
2018 is the year SK (me!) takes his artwork to the next level.
It means I paint and photograph frantically, passionately and furiously. It means I dare and show my work to people. It means I take risks and attempt to build something from all of the things I’ve learned over the past few years. It means I take all of these concepts I’ve had floating around in my head and make them real. Make great images that make me happy. Make art with a plan.
This is really terrifying… I need some chocolate.
I tried to copy this beautiful piece by this wonderful artist Jamel Akib only to quickly realize that its not as easy as it looks. It was fun, but the end result hardly stands(doesn’t even kneel upto, crawl more like it) up to the original......
Travelers carry little and take away lots. Tourists carry lots and take away little. Tourists go to see something, cross off a bucket list, travelers loose themselves somewhere. Oh, the aura, the romance, the mystique of the ‘traveler’. But, I can scarcely spit out the confession, so painful is the suspicion that my own travels were really more ‘tourist’ than ‘traveler’.
