“The thing I love most about photography is that you can look at it with shameless pride, and admire your work in full humility, because you’re admiring something else. You captured another object’s beauty, not your own. Photographers see the world through different eyes; through eyes that see grace in every small detail and can turn everyday items into something extraordinary.” -Taylor Katz
“Beauty is really in the eye of the camera.” -POP’s
Firm believer in natural lighting and typically very little editing (though I’ve been experimenting more, recently). I despise using the flash on my camera, even in low light situations..
Katz is 19 year old self taught amateur photographer from Chicago. She was extremely active in her High School’s choir and theater program, and was in her school’s top choirs. She is now pursuing a degree in Music Education. When not in the spotlight, she loves being behind it, and the same goes with her camera.
As a child, she loved taking pictures with her Barbie Polaroid camera, and posed her grandmother all over her back yard for pictures. Taylor’s creative streak in photography began when she was 14 and got a Canon SD1100. It opened up a whole new world to her, because she was no longer limited by the expenses of film, and the amount of photos she could take. For about a year, she was known as “Katz and her camera” because they were completely inseparable. She now uses a Nikon D3000, which she can’t take everywhere due to its size, but she frequently goes on small walks and trips to the local arboretum and botanic gardens to take pictures.
