What Goes Through My Head When I "Press The Button"

September 08, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I truly love what I do.

 

When I capture a photograph like the one featured here, words cannot express what I feel.

Awe. Accomplishment. Unbridled joy.

Everything comes together (skill, experience, and a little bit of luck) to make it happen. 

 

So what goes through my head when I "press the button"? My goal is to capture not only what is happening in the moment, but also what is happening from within. Capturing what's happening in the moment is fairly easy. Photograph as an observer and you can easily accomplish such. TV coverage of a sports event does such for the most part. But as a photographer (and artist) that is not good enough. I photograph not from the perspective of an observer, but from the perspective as someone who is participating. I want to capture facial expressions, feelings, emotions, i.e., what is happening from within. This is when a photograph shows more than just what is happening in the moment, and transcends from "good enough" to "great."

 

Until next time,
