Shots and Thoughts

Photos and comments as I explore my passion for photography. Written to and for myself as a journal to track major moments and minor observations as I continue to evolve my visual art. 

One is the Loneliest Number

For a variety of reasons I have been feeling alone and isolated lately, so these b/w photos showed up. I love them.

Pro tip: As I started in photography I was focused on the technical aspects to get he the image right (exposure, white balance, shutter speed, etc.). Then I moved to getting the shots in a clean background, really watching the edges of the shot. Moving forward I started to understand light both in the studio and on location. This lead me to get a feel for shooting into the shadows (the short side of a portrait). And on to composition within the frame. Now I am on the edge of shooting emotionally, with feeling and instinct....MTK.
