For a long time I left my DA very dormant--sometimes I would come on here to be like "o wow, been forever" check some deviations and leave for another 3 years--wHICH IS FINE! But, it is also not fine because being creative in some way, shape, or form, is something that I love and it makes me sad at myself that I haven't been doing it for so long. Or at least not at the capacity that I used to, and that also makes me sad.
Back in the day when I was at my peak with DA, I was constantly uploading things, even if those things weren't very good or whatever. At the time I also had a youtube channel that I would upload videos to constantly (more than on DA), and that's also when I started photography. And n recent years (maybe the part 3-5 years) I've been becoming less and less creative (thus active) on youtube and DA, which is something that I really want to change. And now I realize I really do have the capacity to change it, which is awesome. So I'm going to be doing a new thing (although surely this isn't that 'new', but it's new for me, so).
I'm going to be (trying) to take more photos whenever I go out and like, DO stuff. I took those photos of Alex the other day, and I remembered how much I actually love the process of photography (finding a subject, finding a place, actually taking the photos, editing, etc.), and I fucking missed it. I missed it so much, and I'm going to try and do it as often as I can. And though I know only like 5 people are gonna even see this probably, that's okay, this is more of like a public thing that I guess I can make myself accountable for because I put it out into the universe and its not just floating around in my head.
Anyways, I don't know if I've decided to call them dailies, randoms, or WHATEVER (the name isn't that important, although it low key is), but these are what I have so far and I really look forward to taking more and adding to this and doing stuff and just being my creative self again. Because my creativity is what got me through a lot of stuff and it makes me sad that I'm neglecting something that brings me so much genuine joy and happiness. It also helps to have the people I take photos of like the pictures too, that also brings me joy and happiness. Anyways! Later~
