If I wasn’t doing what I’m doing, I would have most likely been a full-time photographer. It’s in my nature I guess; my mom is a photographer, so is my brother and pretty much everyone else I’m close with ;) There’s something about that rush of excitement when you get that perfect, beautiful, captivating image; “the one”. It’s almost hard to put into words.
I think you look at the world differently when you are a photographer; you find beauty in things people find ordinary- and with that you can create magic. Sometimes it’s something you’ve planned for a long time, and sometimes it’s just something you stumble across. You see the beauty in a trickle of light reflecting in a murky rain puddle next to the gutter. Really, it’s the little things like these. You find grace in imbalance, allure in prosaic, and charm in drab.
These photos were shot by photographer Jones Crow in a dirty underground tunnel with one beam of light shining through. A place that would never get a second look by most. We hadn’t planned to shoot here, and weren’t really sure how they were going to turn out but looking through the photos and seeing how we created something beautiful out of nothing really inspired me to write a little piece on my love for photography.
Of course not anyone can be a professional photographer; it’s expensive, unpredictable, and just as any other art it takes a truly skilled artist with a talented eye. But I highly suggest everyone to indulge in photography as a hobby. It’s relaxing, it’s beautiful and a wonderful release of self expression.
*P.S. I’m going to write a piece on camera equipment soon. :) So if you have any particular questions for us ask below!!!
