I photo for many reasons. Some are the most obvious:
- I enjoy it.
- It documents my every day.
- It helps me slow down and see the world.
- Its a creative outlet
- and the list can go on and on
But really, what I have found lately is that it feeds and nourishes my soul. This is what draws me to photography. Maybe this is the obvious that I should have always known. However, I many have overlooked it for the "obvious" reasons.
I can tell the photos in my library that really reflect my soul. I'm learning that this is what really makes a great photo. I know you too can look at other people's photos including your own work and pick out the ones that move you. These are the photos that show the soul of the person behind the lens. That person, that artist has found a way to show you what moves her.
I've decided for me, that I am going to try my best to take the shots that reflect my soul. I want to capture the things that I see that move me.
Its not as easy as it sounds. Are you up for joining me? Are you up for the challenge of revealing a little piece of yourself in every photo you take?
