Why I Love Photography
Ever since I started getting serious about photography, I began to see the world differently. I look at mountains as the sun sets and pay attention to how the last bits of sun gently outline the crest. I look at tones in the clouds and pay attention to whether plants rustle in the wind if I want to shoot a long exposure. When I look at people, I just think of all the moments passing by and how to capture the right moment for that person - what angles work and how I want to light them. Do I want the light to wrap around their body and gently fade into shadow, or do I want to use highlights to carve her out from the background and accentuate the soft contours of her face? How much shadow do I let stay to add drama and depth? Every moment is different and they disappear forever instantly. One of the things I love the most about photography is being able to capture the best moment and show it to someone and have them see the same thing that I see, the same beauty that I see, and to show them a picture and have them say,"That's me?"And they get to keep that captured moment forever and know that they are beautiful and powerful.
I'm also a lawyer and I am married and have three boys.
