I have always loved capturing each and every moment I am living in. My dad gave me my first camera when I was 16 years old. My favourite thing about photography is how powerful a photograph can be. The sheer amount of emotion that a single image can evoke has always astounded me.
From capturing the moments of people you love to capturing landscape of a location that you know intimately, the more meaning the subject has to you, the more emotion you can capture. As Don McCullin once said “Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.”
Reflecting your own feelings and emotions in a photo adds a whole new dimension the viewer cannot ignore. Photography makes me happy. Capturing emotions, wildlife, sceneries, and every moment I am living in makes me feel like nothing ever can. It’s been just a few years but there are many more to come and I can tell it’s going to be a hell of a ride.
