20 (who?)
i've always been a lover of the ugly pretty. i don't mind shooting in harsh sunlight or when my model is looking the other way or has a tangled mess of hair on her face. my camera clicks when someone takes a deep breath in or are tying their shoelaces on the side of the road. this year i want to shoot that more than ever. i want to shoot knees with bruises and hands rubbing tired eyes with dirt underneath plain fingernails. i want to run around barefoot in the forest with the wild bird i am taking pictures of in the few minutes of blue light after the sun sets and before the night sets in. i want to shoot designer clothing in the ocean and climb trees in dresses. i want to breathe life into my photography like it breathes life into me.

See, I want to shoot what you've been shooting- people bending down to tie their shoelaces. The every day thing. But I get afraid. I've got a nice camera, and enough abilities to take a decent picture, but I chicken out. I worry "What will he/she think if I am seen taking their picture? What if people get mad at me?" And that's really stupid, because it's not illegal. How do you get over that sort of thing? What drives you to just take pictures out in the open of everyone and everything? *curious* :hmm:

This is why you are my favorite photographer. You capture and understand the beauty of life. Not just the cliche beautiful moments but those in our every day lives!
