Had a great time this past weekend shooting Tash. As the time grew closer to our shoot date she became increasingly nervous. She felt that she would just stand there with a goofy smile on her face staring into the camera. After some early jitters she settled into a groove with some subtle coaching and suggestions. She was truly a pleasure to work with. We ended up having a great time and she was excited at the end of the shoot.
What makes a photograph great? Is it one that provokes thought and challenges the viewer to look inward for answers? Is it one that draws in the viewer and warms the heart?
It is nothing short of mind boggling the endless variety of emotions and interpretations that one piece of work can evoke. This is the freedom which art gives us. Some feel so passionately about their own individual interpretation that they wish to to confine others to their own vision. However this variation in interpretation of images is what makes photography so liberating.
In the upcoming posts you will see a range of images that I hope will enlighten, inspire, and provoke thought. I look forward to sharing my insights regarding my photographs. Please come back and share your thoughts on how my work makes you feel and any suggestions/ideas to try. You dont have to agree with my views or style but, please respect my views and freedom to express it as I do yours. Look forward to hearing from you all.
Until Next Time…
