Creating Portraits of people is becoming challenging for me. I’ve become more concerned about creating an image that “looks” like the subject I’m photographing than just taking a picture of the subject. I want to be able to relate with and connect with the image and not just say “oh it’s a fine picture”. This takes a lot and adds so much pressure a-times; so imagine how I felt when KIKI reached out and said she wanted a “grown” portrait. In her own words “I don’t want clean and fresh, I want something that shows GROWN”. My immediate thoughts were; that I’ve photographed her more than 5 times , what else do I want to do differently 🤷🏽♂️. What does grown even mean sef 😂. #randomthoughts
I’m very pleased with results we got from this shoot.
I took out somethings from my experience photographing @kikiosinbajo.
1: Shooting your friends is hard work 😓 😂😂
2: People Evolve and it’s ok to capture that in the process
3: Challenge Yourself : you grow as an artist by doing so
Here’s wishing you a wonderful day as you turn a year older today. Continue to shine in all that you do . May God bless and cause you to flourish in all your endeavors @kikiosinbajo

#randomthoughts i’ve been thinking a lot, and tbh, almost all the friends that i had made here thanks to this acc, are gone, have left or are inactive. and it’s sad to think how, in 2016 the hype for marshall was so fucking cute and we were rly like a “stan family”, as corny as it sounds. and now, i feel really alone here sometimes. i know that my friends still have personal ig’s or i have their numbers, but i refer like here, seeing them post and create content. maybe that’s why i’m feeling so unmotivated to create my own. plus, right now i define my acc as an eminem news or like, i just prefer keep updating my followers on what marshall is doing, rather than keep editing the old stuff about him. so, i rly want to be here as an eminem acc when he is touring or having interviews etc. but, when marshall is in his cave, is hard keeping the content flowing. cuss he’s just doing nothing that we can see, i mean, you can’t not even see a paparazzi pic of him going to burger king, cuss he doesn’t let other ppl to recognize him, and is totally fine cuss nobody would like to have a life like that. so, idk, i’m just writing my thoughts here. i’m not leaving, and i’ll be posting here till the day (lord forgives) that marshall dies. cuss this is my way to tell him how much he is appreciated. maybe in the future it could be one pic per year, or whatever. but i hope to have this acc and i hope that ppl follows marshall till the day this man goes to hell. (or heaven), or reincarnates into a dog. ya know what i mean. 💛🧡 ...
Би 14тай байхдаа өөрийгөө суга өсөөд том болно байх гэж бодоод нэг зун баахан томдсон хувцас авч байсын. Манай гэрийнхэн чи одоо л 15 насандаа л аймар өснө нтр гээд. (эрэгтэй хүүхдүүд л тэгдэг байх) ТЭГСЭН ЯАСАН? Яг хэвэндээ. Харин ч агшсан шинжтэй. 5'2 гэж авжийлээ намайг 😂😭Тэр хувцаснууд одоо ч хамаагүй томдохоор. Би 15тайгаасаа хойш өсөөгүй л дээ.
Би ойрд нэг зүйл анзаараад...бодоод байхад би 15тай байхдаа өөртөө итгэлгүй байсан, тэр зүйл дээрээ одоо ч өөртөө итгэлгүй байх үеүүд байдаг юм байна лээ. Хүний нас явж, ухааждаг ч ер нь дотроо байнга хүүхдээрээ л байдаг мэт санагдав.
———————————————————————— One summer I bought a bunch of oversized clothes, thinking that I would grow into it any minute. My parents kept telling me “15 is when your body suddenly starts growing, you’ll be as tall as your dad any minute”. Yo, I’m being serious, I didn’t grow since 14. if anything I shrunk. Those clothes would still be baggy. (I swear, my parents thought I was a dude) 😕
Recently, it occurred to me that I have the same insecurities which I had since I was 15. I am still a kid inside, but just with more experience and a tad bit intelligent.
