I love mystery. I love not knowing what someone is thinking and I love it when an image leaves something to the imagination. Ambiguity is one of the greatest things you can have in a photograph. I don’t always have it in mine, but I do try to have some element that makes you think. It makes you wonder what was going on, or if I have really done my job, it takes you to a place where you wish you were.
I shoot film for nostalgia and because I can’t look at the back of the camera. This trains me not to look at the back of the camera when I shoot digitally. I want to be in the moment, not skimming over what I just shot. When you are in the moment as a photographer you are part of your art. To me this is what gives a photo soul and what gives it life.
Just my little bit of philosophy for the day. 😉
