I am an avid semi-professional nature photographer living in Colorado. I am inspired by the natural beauty here day and night, and I love almost (can’t forget about the family) nothing more than pushing the shutter button. This sums it up for me….
It’s about the sheer joy of clicking the shutter…repeatedly! The sweet sound of the shutter and the explosion that occurs in your head and your heart when you make the shot. The deal is the shot, you know. You make the picture and you know something just froze solid in a shifting world. Something stabilized, for all time. You hung your hat on a moment that otherwise would be gone forever,and now you can go back and take a look at that moment, be it amazing or ordinary, any time you want.
It’s about your eye in the camera as light hits just right. It’s about the slight turn of the subject’s face that speaks the truth. It’s about holding your breath as you shoot. It’s about the nerves, the joy, and the terror of wondering if you got it. And then dancing about, punching holes in the air when you know you did. It’s about…the moment it clicks.
