Hey there! The name's Frances, I'm 19 and I love photography, art and music. I'm part of deviantART to grow and improve as an artist, and without you guys this wouldn't be possible. So thank you for simply visiting my profile, favouriting and commenting on my work. It means a lot!

I'm always trying new photography and new ideas that come to me. Don't always expect the same thing, because variation is much more interesting :)

Breathing life into my portraits

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 28, 2013, 3:56 AM
I've been absent from deviantART for a while, but I really want to 'reinvent' myself on here.

For those of you who don't know, about two years ago I started doing photography full time as a career, at the age of 18. I was living at home (I still am) and doing it on my own & being self taught was an alternative of paying the extortionate fees at uni. I thought, if I can teach myself in the same amount of time then why spend over 30k on university? So that's what I've been doing! It's been about 10x harder and more complicated than I had ever imagined, but for some reason everyday I fall more in love with photography.

I probably wouldn't be where I am right now if it wasn't for deviantART and everyone on here believing in me and encouraging me. My type of photography has changed a lot since I was active here, but it was here that belief in my photography started.

I've been taking portraits for a couple of years now, but it's only recently I've realised the direction I want to go in. I want to breathe live into my portraits. I don't just want it to be a pretty face and a pretty picture, I want there to be some form of meaning behind it. I want the photo to have life, I want to be able to create life in imagery.

This is going to be super tough for me, there is no doubt about it. But I want to return to dA and continue developing my photography to a new level, just like I used to all those years ago.

So here goes nothing :)
