I like natural, spontaneous photography. I don't care for staged shots so much. When I am taking photos of nature, I simply look for beautiful or unique shots that present themselves. The Gulf Coast Sunset photos were taken on different nights, and each night I thought I had gotten the best I could get ... then the next night would be even better. I have other pictures from that trip that I'm going to put in another album, and they demonstrate more of my preferences and "techniques."
When I photograph people, I again prefer spontaneity. Candids are the best when it comes to lending feeling to a photograph. Staged shots tend to be "stiff" and forced.
Thanks for your interest and I hope you continue to check out my albums as I make them available!
