“You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
― Ansel Adams
I love Ansel's quote above.
I think with anything in life, it first must start with passion and a drive. A zest for something new, in an ever changing landscape. To me, photography allows me to explore and see the world in a way that I may never have before. It allows me to be more in tune, aware, and observant of my surroundings, and to take in its beauty and rawness in a whole new way. It allows me to be creative, and lets me capture my interpretation of the world as I see it. The camera is not only an extension of my eyes, but my imagination. I want to make photos that tell a story.
