Profile and silhouette portraits have always captured my imagination as a photographer. There is power and mystery in a striking profile or silhouette portrait. I'm working on an AI-series of design-style profile and silhouette portraits to showcase their beauty, strength, and mysterious quality. These portraits also work beautifully in design with single-color or gradient backgrounds, giving them a stylish aesthetic suitable for creative business and marketing purposes.
As I was writing in my journal this morning, I began to think about how I miss shooting street photography, something I regularly did before the pandemic. Like many things that enter my mind these days, I started working on a poem and art based on how I love watching people and how they interact in their bubbles of space. There is so much beauty and mystery in their movements and expressions. I pull from my mental toolbox and Theory of Mind to ascertain their thoughts and feelings.
As an artist and creator, I have my ups and downs. Sometimes I get an idea in my head and can't stop thinking about it, like how I am with AI-generated art now; other times, I feel lost. I learned years ago that changing your perspective can often lead to a new mindset and ideas. I find this to be true no matter what I'm working on.
