For me, Photography by its very nature is a paradox. It’s the perfect fusion of art and science. It’s an expressive, creative outlet and a serious discipline. It’s an attempt to make timeless a small moment in time. To be effective, it evokes emotion, drama, and a story from a static two-dimensional image. And the photographer must balance time, light, and image quality to make all of this happen. These balancing acts are what draw me into the world of photography.
Recently, someone encouraged me to start a photo blog, helping me realize that I’m taking thousands of photos each year, but what good are they if they’re sitting on my computer. So this photo blog is my attempt to share my journey through the paradox of photography. My goal is to share images that give you an insight into how I see the world, both the big picture and the finer details. But it’s also my way of sharing what I’ve learned as I learn it.
So thanks for visiting my blog. Please share your comments, feedback, critiques, and suggestions, as I’m always looking for new ways to make photos and make them better.
Thanks to Mike Pillows for encouraging me to make this blog. And many thanks to the fantastic members of the Maple Shade-Moorestown Camera Club, who’ve given me a great deal of critiques, encouragement, and photographic fellowship.
