My photography is either about capturing memories or capturing beauty – sometimes there is an overlap. Those posted here are primarily of the second kind.
Capturing beauty happens in two steps. First, the beauty must be discovered. Sure, beauty is everywhere – even in the drabbest of settings. But it takes a conscious mind and a trained eye to see the subtler, and more interesting beauty. The second part is the act of capturing the beauty. It is a challenge because our visual impressions are the result of a flood of information that unconsciously overwhelms our senses – all with different perspectives, framing, depth of field, etc. All that must be seized in a “single shot”. And that shot is successful only if it captures the richness of emotions that had captivated me in the first place. This is hard work – because it is art work
