Photography is more than your camera, it’s a tool, not unlike a paintbrush or instrument, that has the power to evoke emotion, transform a life, and leave an indelible mark on our souls.
Listening to the teaching of master photographers like Jerry Ghionis and Jeremy Cowart, each different and yet similar, I was reminded that returning to who we are at the very essence will inform, improve, and shape our images more than any photography class or skills-based training available.
Soak in the words that inspired me to emerge from yesterday’s valley to create artful images today…
We shine most when we are creating.
Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.
Oscar Wilde via Jeremy Cowart
Don’t spend energy focusing on your fears. Spend it chasing your dreams!
