Photo Contest

This picture is currently a finalist in a photo contest. I took this picture less than a year ago, in my back yard.

With my phone.

There are scores of people who believe photos are the creation of the camera and if you buy an expensive camera you will be able to get instant great shots.

It's like saying if you buy the same guitar as Eddie VanHalen you'll be able to play like Eddie VanHalen. Sounds ridiculous when you say it that way, doesn't it?

Becoming a finalist came at the right time. As much as I love doing this project I'm having a hard time finding myself, my style. Anyone can take a picture of a sunset, I need to figure out what my style is, what sets me apart because lately I am feeling dejected and ready to give up.

I always thought photos should evoke an emotion an today I read one quote about this photo that brings me to tears..."this picture reminds me that one day I will be reunited with my little boy"

  1. Don't give up!! You are so talented. Anyone can take a picture of a sunset - but only talented photographers can make that sunset look like more than just an ordinary picture. You are a photographer, not an ordinary person snapping a pic. ~D
