Many people feel that anyone can take a picture. However, to create a photograph takes much more than just pushing the shutter button. A good photographer realizes most importantly he/she must create a photograph, not just “take” a picture. What exactly does this entail? A photograph must be technically superior to a snapshot, however, more importantly; a photographer needs to create a photograph that is visually stunning and relays to the observer their feelings and emotions of their subject. My hope is that I convey this message to observers of my work.
