Who are you – what inspires your photography
Every day we post different types of tutorials, photography guides, marketing info, product reviews basically anything I think (or hear from you) that would help out your photo journey and make us all better photographers. Today though I wanted to do something a little different. I get a lot of great feedback from polls on this site or Facebook and twitter and through that I have been able to somewhat get to know a few of you. But today I wanted to open up a conversation with everyone about who you really are and what inspires you. So in the comments below leave us a little note about who you are, what inspires your photography and what your photography dreams are. Leave a link to your website also so we can all view some of your work.
And if you are stumped on what to write i’ll start it out with a little about me. For me Photography has always fascinated me it’s ability to capture as Bresson-Cartier put it “The decisive moment”. There is that one split second moment that captures the essence of a person or moment and to me that is such a powerful thing. I love being able to create images that show who someone really is, real life images that capture a slice of what was going on in that one split second of someones life. I also love the creativity and endless potential that photography has. As a way for me to express myself, my thoughts and feelings photography is an amazing art medium that I have been passionate about since I can ever remember. I am also inspired as an artist by my family. I look into the eyes of my 2 year old daughter and see the beauty, fascination, and wonderment of a child that inspires me to be creative. The creation that God has put on this earth, from us to the details of a flower or grandness of a sweeping landscape amazes me and inspires me each and every day.
Although this isn’t the best shot (actually just a quick iPhone snap by myself) it sums up part of what inspires me. Still need to work on getting that family portrait of all 4 of us done one day, i’ll update this photo when I do 🙂
So share a little about who you are and what inspires you below.
