Micheal Collins is a photographer that I first met while he was shooting my wedding. Now, I am fortunate enough to have a few images of him in my possession and he has been a pleasure to work with. I think if I had enough time, I would shoot with him again, but I am not sure when that would happen.
I guess that is the secret, if you can only do it once. If you can’t do it once, you can’t do it later. If you are one of those people who really has never done anything with photography, you better find something to do with it before you die.
He’s one of the best people I have ever met. I am lucky to have him as a friend.
I’ve worked with a lot of photographers, so it’s not like I’m a stranger to photographers. I’ve done some of my best work in the studio, so I feel quite comfortable taking on the job of a freelance photographer. However, there are times when I am forced to do portraits in public, which for me is an entirely new experience. The best way to describe these situations is that I feel like I’m being stalked.
I know this is a big statement, but I have to say this, because I’m a professional photographer myself. This is something that I do on occasion, but I also have a degree in Film. I don’t think I’d be able to tell you a secret about myself if I told you I used to work in a studio, but I do believe I can tell you about my experiences photographing at the beach.
As a photographer, the most important thing to me is to get my subjects to look good. With a camera to my eye, I can take the time to look at a photograph and capture a real-looking picture. On the beach, I have to work a little harder. If I leave a person out of a photograph, they may look fine, but I may not have captured the true essence of their personality.
With a camera to your eye, you can take the time to look at a photograph and record a real-looking picture. On the beach, you can’t always use a camera to your eye. You have to get your subjects to look good. And in some cases, that means getting them to sit still.
Another way to think about it is to look at a photograph and say, “this person looks like a person.” This, I think, is the kind of thing that people who are not photographers might miss. A photo of a person can be a great portrait, but if the person is a person, it can be a terrible photograph.
The same goes for photography. We do not photograph the person we are looking at. We take a photo of that person and it’s a picture of them. We should be getting paid for portraits, not real-looking ones.
The way I see it, a photographer can be very good at capturing the essence of their subject. They just need to be looking at the photo for very long, and they will get the information they need. A lot of people use photography as a crutch, but that is not its purpose. Photography is not a form of “self-mythologizing” people, it is a form of communication.
