Seeing is the Essence of Photography
It requires awareness; and awareness is a state of mind. There are many things in front of you now but you are not necessarily aware of all of them. How do you see the world around you? Do you often see what others miss or are you inclined to miss what others see?
We take pictures of the things that capture our imagination. Each person has a different vision. Put 100 photographers in a room and you’ll get 100 different photos. The way you see the world is unique, and photography lets you share that perspective with others.
Seeing is the essence of photography. It is our ability to absorb what lies in our view, process that, and target the frame that is the most compelling.
This is the world as I see it. Some will have the same vision and like what they see. Some may not, because what compels me does not necessarily compel them.
Hopefully you will enjoy the photographs, and have the desire to photograph more.
