Photography is an art of observation. It has little to do with the things you see and everything with the way you see them.
It took me a great while to find exactly what I love about photography, was it the smiles of happy customers when they see their pictures? sure that is always nice, but that wasn't everything, my heart was still missing something. The first few years you stumble through the motions, taking pictures, collecting money, inspiration comes from other photographers ideas and rarely your own. After years of practicing and constantly being consumed with creating the perfect photo, you one day realize you have, even if you are the only one who thinks so, It's what that one picture did to your soul that has suddenly made you feel whole. That one picture happened a year ago after 5 years of photography and now I create the same each time I photograph a person. It's not just the picture itself, It's the raw emotion, wind blown locks, creative freedom and making a client comfortable so you can bring out their inner and outer beauty, THAT is what I create for me. Simple is that but you also find your own way of editing images that are yours and yours only.
I can say I truly have found what makes me tick and it's YOU, I love finding and bringing out YOU. Something so minor but the feeling photography gives me after seeing a finished product literally makes my soul content and happy.
Thank you for reading, I'm not always the best with thinking of things to post along with a picture, but today was different, thank you for your time.
