In life it is so easy for me to go on autopilot. Until I run out of steam and I hit the wall. Hard.
I recently came back from a wonderful photography convention and the reoccurring thread was the encouragement to shoot for ourselves. To shoot what we truly love and make time for personal work. I definitely have not arrived, but I find myself easily sliding into a comfortable shooting style of what I know how to do…not pushing myself to find the pause. There are times behind the camera when I’m shooting or sitting at my desk editing and I see something. I have a dramatic, cinematic moment….sometimes I even hold my breath. And I feel the pause and the world kind of stands still.
This is what I want in my photography. To feel it and hold it for a moment longer. And then share it with you.
