To me, photography is an addiction. And I got the addiction young. Starting with a folding bellows camera at 11, I set out to learn the art of photography. I don’t really know why it interested me so much, but it always has. Perhaps it was the idea of capturing a scene in that split second when the light is just right, and the view is just perfect. Like a hunter in search of big game.
Photography is easier now. No more stinky chemicals, no more fumbling around in the darkroom. Digital has changed things drastically. It has made good photography more accessible. The tools available today are simply amazing.
But in the end, all the technology in the world cannot see a good composition. That requires the eye of a photographer. And that, in the end, is my quest. The pursuit of the perfect image. Or two.
