"Portraits often speak more about the photographer than the subject. Think of the person you're photographing as a canvas onto whom you project yourself. A great portrait tells the world about yourself as much - if not more - than the person you're actually photographing."
I think it perfectly describes why I like doing photography - its an outlet for my creative, fun, artistic side of my brain... but there is a lot of technical thought that's required to make a good photograph, and thats the chemistry major side of me. Also, its an absolute blast and I thoroughly enjoy all the people I get to meet and work with, and thats my love of people coming out.
I think my favorite one from this series is one above. For me it represents completely letting go of everything and just enjoying the moment for what it is. I think if I were to have a goal in photography, it'd be that =)
And when I get to work with people that are as passionate for what they do as I am about photography, way cool things are possible =) So, thanks Tess, Katrina, and Amie. I love my friends and the awesome people in my life! Can't wait for the next one!
