ARTS & CRAFTS
As I am principally a people photographer I am more interested in the artist or crafts person than the quality and or the distinctive products that they create. However quite often it is not always possible to separate those that create the work and the work itself because there is always something of the artist in their work and vice versa.
Modern DSLR cameras are a miracle of technology and I find that features such as their ability focus automatically a godsend as it leaves me free to concentrate on details such as my camera angle, framing and lighting in my effort to produce work of sufficient quality to pass critical eye of these artisans and to produce an image with a professional look.
However I never lose sight of the fact that my subject is always the most important element in the frame. Every person has a story, and every picture should tell part of that story.
If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough. - Robert Capa
I began to realize that the camera sees the world differently than the human eye and that sometimes those differences can make a photograph more powerful than what you actually observed. - Galen Rowell
Photography is the art of frozen time… the ability to store emotion and feelings within a frame. - Meshack Otieno
