Directions

I am trying to find myself artistically. Where it is that I want to go. How it is that I am to overcome the insecurities that I have regarding this art form. I see what they are doing, and wonder why it is that I am not producing like images. But they are not me. Our perspectives are different.

I feel as though I lack the creative side that is needed within this art. I simply see and take. How do I return and give back? My images feel stolen from time, and I am the thief that took them. But are they good? At what point is one able to say that they created the image, rather than simply captured an image? Perhaps I have begun to refine capturing a moment...

Sometimes I know when a photograph has been captured. I am thankful for having been there to have to do so. A moment in time preserved. Often I am lost in my framing, and composition, and then wait for things to come together in the world trapped within my viewfinder. The shutter is then released, and I slowly move onto the next moment...
