There is something profound about creativity. Whether you’re thinking up new processes in the work place, doing new DIY projects for the home, or writing a twenty-page college term paper, creating things gives you the ability to lend new meaning to the material.
That’s what gets me excited about the craft of photography. A simple lens switch or angle adjustment can lend entirely new perspectives for the same subject. For example, take a look at one of my favorite people: this six-year-old, Christian.
What made this particular photo shoot so unique is that I’ve had a chance to get to know this sweet family very well over the last couple of years. Christian has some of the wittiest one-liners you could ever imagine, so it was especially fun to capture his antics. Here you can see two sides of Christian, the child-like side and the “I’m well beyond my years” side. The guy just makes you laugh no matter what.
With infinite possibilities of angle adjustments, subjects, seasons, no two photos can ever really be the same. And that kind of uniqueness is what draws me to the art of photography.
