Hii!!! This is my first post! I’m excited to get this off the ground and on my way to the limitless potential that awaits me. I would like to start by just sharing my thoughts about photography and why I do what I do. I’ll be introducing everyone to the other work that I do in my next post. For now, enjoy the read and take care.
I love photography. I have such a huge passion for capturing images. What I love about it is that they emit such life by just standing still to be gazed upon. It’s truly amazing that a single image, a single, specific arrangement of pixels and luminance and color, can reach out and be so alive. We live in a moving world where living organisms do not stay still; where even inanimate objects are provoked into movement. We have recorded moving images that fascinate and thrill us. We are enchanted by the mobility of it all.
Yet we create works of stillness. They are admired upon, just simply for what it is. We pull out thoughts, feelings, emotions, and ideas from them. They inspire. We interact with them. They have the amazing power to pull us in. We choose to stare into something that will never move yet they have the ability to say so much. And in return, they actually move us. It’s absolutely beautiful.
There will never be the same image. There is never another one like it, just as each passing moment is unique in itself. Each snap of a picture parallels the continuous moving of time, a documentation of that specific fleeting moment in time. The image is sealed, and then the world continues to move on. We have the power and ability to pause life and examine it. That is tremendously phenomenal. I am just extremely grateful for this advancement in discovery, of the capabilities of this world; In us as humans. That I have a camera at my disposal to use as a tool to go out and point out and share the infinite beauty of the world.
Photography is a showcase of the world from all sorts of lenses. When I step back and think of all the combinations of angles, distance, height, brightness, subject matter, the camera choice, the lens choice, the eye through which the camera lens extends from, the moment your finger presses down on the button… I think of one grounded, humbling word: limitless. My job is never done. I find that ironically very satisfying. It’s a great reminder of the unlimited potential we are presented with. Thank you God.
