Snapshots

Many of you will notice my snapshots portfolios.  I love traveling.  It is always so fun and engaging to visit new places.  The sights, sounds, tastes...everything is enjoyable.  Something I try to do when taking travel photography is to find the best angle and lighting because I won't edit them.  Some may not agree with me, but I think too often we try to make something look better and brighter, but if you capture the photo the first moment you see it, then it will always be beautiful to you because it evokes the memory of when it was happening.  I guess I can say it enough, but when we look at pictures you should feel like you are standing in that place all over again.  That is why the portfolios of travel that you see are as I saw them.  Unedited, raw and perfect.  And when I feel like I am sitting on that beach again at sunset, or standing in the heat of the day look at a magnificent edifice, then the my photography has served its purpose.  

We are always looking for that one perfect picture, but the true perfect picture is the one that makes it seem as if that moment in time is happening all over again.
