Finding My Feet

09th September 2013
When I first started in photography I struggled with "fitting in", naming my genre and putting a title on what I do. In many respects that's still the case. Like all creative people I'm my own worst critic, trust me......very few images make it onto my site. I've settled with calling myself a photographic artist, because that best describes my work. When deciding on which images make the cut, I imagine having them on my wall. I think about how I feel when I'm looking at at them. I have to be 100% satisfied that the work that I present carries and conveys atmosphere. All of the images on this site are captured with emotion and in some way shape or form, they say something about me and how I view our everyday surroundings. I'm not going to say that I have a passion for photography, more of a passion for life,art and the ordinary. If I didn't feel this way, if it was just a case of taking a photograph and there being no emotional attachment, then how could I expect the viewer to feel anything?



“You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
― Ansel Adams

Photo comment By Richard Lamb: You are very creative and that is what counts,wishing you all the best. If you seek out my yahoo flickr account, username icqstory2 , I am following some very brilliant artists like yourself, one of my faves is thomas hawk,reason he is one of my faves besides his good photographs is because he is being followed on flickr and facebook by more than 500,000 people, but he took the liberty the other day of following me as well as favoriting an old pic of my fish store: ) cheers Marion.
