|What do you try to express through your photography?
I try to capture a sense of who or what something is at that exact moment in time. People and things are constantly changing - they are in a perpetual liminal state, and I try and stop time for just a moment so you can more fully understand and appreciate who they are at that point.
The beauty of our world and life as we know it.
it depends on the type of photography. Usually if it nature I want it to be about how they (flora & fauna) usually acts. if its fashion photography I would focus on the details or facial, body expression.
I just try to get the best picture possible from whatever I take
Emotion or humor. Beauty or authenticity.
It really depends on circumstance and opportunity.
What I try to express through my photography is a strong sense of emotion. It could be happy, sad, excitement, shock, etc... To have the viewer empathize with what I was feeling would be the greatest achievement.
When photographing people; I really attempt to be natural and to get spontaneous reactions from my subjects. Capturing a moment where you can see into the soul of another person is invaluable.
I also like to create juxtapositions with my creative shoots, sometimes resulting in surreal pictures.
I love to express the feeling of a unique moment in time and location. Life unscripted.
My main goal during a photo shoot is to capture the subject's personality. Everyone is unique, and I try photograph those differences. I want the picture to be a testiment of who that person really is.
Trying to express something is what students try and do and some quite naive artists, you really put something up there and see what people think, you have your ideas but they are complex to explain and come from many places, references, politics, upbringing, education etc. etc. - the more complex, the harder you have to work and the greater the reward. Sadly much work is done purely for aesthetic reasons. Someone once said to me that photography shouldn't be 'OF' something but 'ABOUT' something.
I love what goes on inside the subjects mind. I try to find ways of making that person trust me 100 per cent so all doors for us to get deep into the eyes of the soul.
A lot of people miss the beauty that lies all around us. Often people find that in photographs.
My photography aims at showing to people the beauty one can see, if they only look around them.
Making a portrait of someone is a contract of trust. The contract can be broken by not listening to the thoughts and concerns of your subject. I like to hold in my head and in my heart the best of my subject while I am photographing. My compassion comes through their image to display beautiful views. Some people call it the "eye" - I don't know. I'm just blessed.
I want to pull out the story in every photograph. And make it interesting enough to make the viewer want to be there themselves. Maybe in a Japanese Garden hidden in the hills of Ky, that has all Marble Columns, Benches and beautiful surroundings with springs running thru it.
If I can somehow photograph the subject so that the person looking at it will want to hear about it, maybe even imagine that they could be there, ... if so, I've done a good job. I like to hear people say they can just "hear" the waterfall....
I like conventional Black and White Film Photography best.
But if need be, I will drag out the digital and try for the "Perfect Shot" and later manipulate it on the computer to make it Black and White or Sepia, perhaps leave it in color - whatever the situation dictates to make it work. Make people wish they could be there.
I try to express the essence of a person and a moment with an artistic and journalistic approach.
