I went to a workshop this weekend and if I learned one thing it’s that I want to create art. I don’t want to just snap pictures of people, I want to capture the actual person. I want you to look at that picture and get a feeling for who that person is. I want you to look at that picture and have a hard time looking away. So how do you do this when you are in no way an artist? I have zero skills when it’s comes to art. In fact when we play pictionary my family spends a majority of the game making fun of me and laughing while showing me the appropriate way to draw a toilet! I worried that this might be a hinderance to a photography career for me because, well, photography is art! What I have since learned though is, I love people. I love watching a person throw their head back in a full laugh and my first thought is “Man I wanna take a picture of that”! I love watching two people in love walking in front of me holding hands. I love everything about taking pictures and capturing emotion. Hopefully this is enough, don’t hold it against me that I can’t draw a toilet!
