I started taking pictures as a kid. Still remember being in the darkroom with my mother at her school, developing my first pictures. The pride I felt when these tiny black and white pictures came to life in the developer.
Today, I’ve changed the little instamatic camera and darkroom to digital cameras and Aperture, but the joy of bringing pictures to life is the same.
The challenge to me is putting a story into the pictures. Getting that little extra step from just another nice picture to a picture that unfolds as a story in the head of the viewer. I guess that’s going to be a long journey, but sometimes the journey is as important as the result.
