Just for my curiosity's sake, i figured i'd try to stimulate a little more discussion on here. Everyone on here has a certain style of shooting that they have. Why do you do what you do? Why have you chosen to shoot in a particular style? What draws you to it?
I guess this question stems from my never ending quest for knowledge and understanding of my environment, people, and people around me.
To start the discussion...what draws me to photography. The ability to manipulate light, to capture each moment as it comes, and freeze it in time. For as the moment comes and passes, there will never be another like it. The process of documenting the happenings, and the small things that people do that they don't notice. I like the fact that with photography i am able to pluck a moment out and freeze it in time, saving it forever and ever, and being able to share it with other, and future generations. I believe that children are my favorite subjects, i've found that they are uninhibited in their expressions of emotion. They always bring out the best in everyone around them and their innocence and carefree outlook never fails to bring a smile to my face. After saying that, i do think that i just enjoy photographing people in general. Capturing emotions and conveying how i perceive the situation, or that moment is what I'm about. By doing this, I seek to change the way we all view the world.
hope that doesn't sound too preachy.
