Something I love about the internet is that every single day we have the ability to come across something new and exciting that will change our lives in some way whether that be in big or small way. This website for example, without the internet I wouldn’t be writing this post right now, without the internet people wouldn’t be able to come across imogimoon and find a post which changes their viewpoint on a subject forever, or see something they can do when they are bored!
Without the internet I wouldn’t have met some of my best friends, without the internet I wouldn’t have discovered so many of my favourite inspirations.
One in particular I can’t go without mentioning is a photographer, I’ve loved photography for a long time however unfortunately there wasn’t the opportunity for me to take it at GCSE, but as soon as i saw it for an A Level option I grabbed at the chance. I now have my camera and am way into my course and it is definitely one of my favourite subjects and also out of college hobbies. So back to the point, a recent inspiration of mine I discovered through a Facebook group The Basement. She posted her work then got spotted and her work is now a feature in a magazine.
Her main concept and theme is based around this idea: “In all honesty, I was sick of seeing my friends take shitty selfies that didn’t do them any justice,” says 19-year-old Chloe Sheppard, a budding filmmaker-photographer. “I wanted to create proper photos that they can look back on when they’re older and think, ‘hey, I really was beautiful back then’, rather than some lo-fi image from a camera phone.”
It’s a shame that I can’t post her photos on here to show people but PLEASE PLEASE check out her website, her work is truly amazing and she is now a real inspiration of mine. Its also such a strong message that she promotes about what beauty really is. Also check out the article written about her if you are more interested about her as a photographer.
