拍照于我是一桩治愈系行为

 

素人介绍

殷紫,自由职业者。一直喜欢摄影,但这两年才开始有意识地拍照和录像。多用iPhone 6s,佳能5D I,或各种随手找得到的相机。Instagram:yin_fotoyoga

| 我与摄影 |

我拍的东西都是平时生活所见,多用iPhone。一本正经地端着大相机和其他设备“搞创作”是极少的。2016年初,我把我的instagram用户名改成了yin_fotoyoga,在签名栏写下了“I practice yoga to bend my body, take photo to bend my mind”。我觉得这句话比较符合我现在拍照的状态。尽管我也不太练瑜伽,但是只要我练,就是伸展和放松身体筋骨。我拍照也不那么勤快,但只要拍,我的意识就抽离了生活琐碎,眼睛专注于所见,相当于脑筋舒展和放松。

可能是北欧纯净的空气和通透的光线,我逐渐对光和影,对坏天气和黑暗给环境带来的神奇变化更敏感了。还有就是各种表面产生的反射。目前来讲,我觉得我还谈不上所谓摄影上的追求,所有的共性和效果多在整理照片时发现的。有时候想多了,反而拍出来很差,这应该是由于我没有技术上的训练。不过我现在还是想多着力于在眼睛和直觉上的反应,让大脑处在一种松弛状态。

拍照于我是一桩治愈系行为,没什么野心,虽然还是常会被想提升的念头所骚扰。最近有意尝试的是超短录像。比如这里的一些照片,我用固定机位拍了同样场景的录像,最多二三十秒。不同的是活动的光影和画外的声音,蛮有趣的。
