Its been hard to photograph recently, I can’t seem to make the connection I have with my camera and the images they turn into. I believe theres a difference between making an image and taking a photograph. I want to be able to make images. Images that transfer you into a time and place, it’s magic mostly. Images that connect people. Good photographers they say, always show the viewer what he is seeing through his view finder. Achieving this is becoming a cumbersome journey. I try all the time but almost always never get it. I have so many good people in my life urging me on and believing in me but Im still not getting the results I desire. It takes time i hear them say. I believe them but Im always and have always been my biggest critic. I haven’t been doing this for long, cant even remember. Say about 9 months maybe.Learnt and read everything by myself. I’ve heard it all, you got potential : why don’t you go to school for it? Well, I believe photography is an art form. It’s innate. You either got it or you don’t. Fine school develops whatever potential you got inside of you but also doesn’t let you think outside the box. Life is always anybody’s best teacher. The best photographers I look up to are self taught, and they are successful at it. Too many thoughts going through my head right now. Bottom line is, I just want my pictures to be the color with which I’m trying to paint my heart. Is that too much to ask for?
