A Photographer’s Afghan Girl

by darkjade68

I’m posting this Article and Photo for our Photographer Jonah Mark Avila, who was one of our Photographers from when our Blog was “The Dark Globe”.

He’s very busy in school, and hasn’t had a chance to Create a New WordPress Account yet.

Enjoy

A Photographer’s Afghan Girl

 A strong photograph is not always about the fancy post processing or the awkward angles of the shots. Usually, a strong photograph is defined by the basics of photography — composition
What makes the “Afghan Girl” by Steve McCurry a legendary photograph was not about the props or the studio lighting. It was the ability of the photographer to show the emotions of the subject through a simple yet perfectly composed photo. The photo had an intrinsic beauty created due to the connection that the photographer have established with the subject. It can’t be easily learned on theory. It needs constant practice and it depends upon the photographer’s personality.
As for me, I am still in search for my Afghan girl photo. I am still developing my craft in composition, post processing and in establishing that degree of photographer-subject relationship ample enough to create a photo with genuine emotions frozen in time.

Legends Undying… Is “Legendary Post”

blackknight-2Legends Undying… Is “Legendary Post”

13 Months ago, our Blog “The Dark Globe” became “Legends Undying”.

A Story Showcase Blog + Sunday Posting

As my life evolves, the Blog continues to evolve with it…

Partly due to me, partly due to the Artists that Contribute to our Site

I’d like to take a moment to Thank all of the Contributing Story Writers over the last 13 Months, as well as our Sunday Posters…

Your Work and Efforts helped to evolve what was a Multi Artist Contributing Site, to a Story Showcase/Sunday Posts Site, flawlessly

As time has gone by, many of our Story Writers have become too busy with their own Projects, and thus I find it is time to make a change.

That coupled with the fact that I want to begin doing more Journal like Posts on this Site (As I used to on “The Dark Globe”, but with a bit of a ‘Improving One’s Life’ kind of flare to it…. And/or, Improving the World we live in.

This is a Beautiful Planet we live on… But as we all know, we’ve tapped into it pretty heavily.

I’m not going to preach about ‘Environment’ Etc.

But I am going to try to throw a bit more Consciousness out there in regards to it.

But that is only part of what this Newly Upgraded Blog Shall Be.

Stories will still be Posted, though in a less scheduled manner… All Writers may Post Freely when they like.

In addition, I hope to bring some Photographers back onto the Site, as Photography Posts I have always found to be extremely uplifting, and enjoyable.

But beyond that, I implore to our Writers, as well as extend a hand out to other Future Writers, to reach into their Minds, Hearts and Souls, and Muster up some Journalism that might Inspire eachother.

The Line has been Drawn… The Glove has been Tossed… Or something like that, Lol

I am Challenging Myself, Our Writers, as well as Future Writers and Photographers to hit us with your Best Shot

Lets Inspire One Another, eh?

Nuff Said

We Are Now, “Legendary Post”

I Leave you with this Quote from an Article about ‘Embracing Your Fears’

By exposing more of our tender heart to the world, revealing our true self to others, and doing that which we love the most, we are led by an intrinsic kind of bravery and capacity for daring. Open-heartedness, as the antidote to fear, goes a long way toward inspiring the boldness necessary to realize our most precious dreams and helps us through the particularly dark nights of the soul.

From Dr. Donna Rockwell’s Article
