I am having a hard time putting things into words, but in essence, the meaning of the subject of this blog is I didn’t get into photography to make millions. I did get into photography to make money and be self-sustaining and a contributor to society. However the biggest and most important reason I started the Creative Photography program at Mohawk College in Hamilton, Ontario was because I love to draw the soul, the being who is behind the masks we wear everyday of our lives of a person in a photograph. Having an image immortalized forever of someone truly brings the mystery of who they are, what are they like. Not really the beauty in the skin, but more of who they are beneath everything.
I don’t regret ever making the decision in April of 2016 to apply and become a photographer. The sheer exhilaration I achieve when I am behind the camera can not be put into words. The post production of going through the images I had taken and selecting the best ones. Feeling the WOW effect on images in which I was the one who photographed it is the effect I always strive for.
Every photographer strives to make an image last the test of time, where no matter how often you see the image. To capture the “decisive moment” as truly stylized by Henri Cartier-Bresson. An artist a pioneer in how photography is captured and interpreted. There will be more on him in upcoming blogs.
As for now, I am just extremely and truly pleased in finding the passion which has me waking up and loving life and loving to stand behind the camera capturing and immortalizing the world around me.
