I love photography, and I love to see and capture the beauty of the world. I’ve spent a lot of time and effort to capture the beauty and joy of the life around me. The most precious moments are the ones that are captured by the camera, and are moments when we can be ourselves and not always be watching others.
Like many of you, I am a photographer. I love to capture moments when I get to be me, and when I can be myself and not always be watching others. Of course, I don’t like the idea of being a photographer, because I’m not really a photographer.
Its not that I don’t want to be a photographer. I’m just not one. I don’t really like the idea of being a shutterbug. But I do like the idea of being able to capture moments from the moment the shutter is snapped, to the moment it reaches the end of the roll, to the moment you’re sitting back and watching it all unfold, and the ones after that, to the moment it is captured in the first place.
This is an idea that’s been kicking around in my mind for the past couple of days. I’ve been thinking of ways to take photos that would be good for publication or the like, but also be “precious” in that they have no use except for that moment in time when the shutter is snapped. Then I wondered if those of us who are into that kind of photography might be able to create something more akin to precious moments photography.
I think it would be interesting to think of a way to capture that moment, but also make it timeless. And you can tell a lot about someone by the way they look while they’re having a bad day. I was thinking about the kind of photography that could be made if you were able to capture that moment in time.
Maybe a digital photograph of a moment in time, captured from different angles, with different lighting? The more different angles you can shoot the better, but I think a good way to capture the moment is to focus on the face, not the background. Some people might think that is weird, but a really good way would be to capture the moment directly in focus, so that the face is clear in your mind.
I think the way we capture the moment is by the light. When I was young, I went to a photography school. I remember showing a couple of my old black and white pictures to the instructor, and how she looked at them with a smile on her face, and with a twinkle in her eye. She was like, “These are beautiful, I love them, but I don’t know how to get them to look like those.
So to capture that smile, it’s really nice to use a soft light and to shoot a lot of your scene in deep shadow. A soft light means that you have the light at exactly the right angle, and you don’t have to worry about the camera being too close to the subject. It also means your subject is in the center of the frame, so the camera doesn’t have to focus on the light.
Its really important that your scene is lighted properly. Light is critical to the effectiveness of your portraits. It also helps your subjects look like they are having a good time, and gives your subject the light they need when it’s time to take their photograph.
I know the idea of shooting your subject with the camera on the point of them being in focus might sound a bit odd, but it works. A lot of times, I see people in my line of work that are quite good with this. They know they wont have to worry about being too close to their subject, but they are still very conscious that they are taking a photo.
