When I first started shooting seriously I had very little in the way of equipment. I learned to see light and the fundamentals of Photography - Light,Subject,Perspective,Composition and Exposure - These 5 elements are the whole of what photography is about. The meat of what we do lay in these five concepts. These five will never change, they will always be in this order, not one of them will come before the other and if someone wants to excel in Photography they MUST master these five things.
Now, each takes a lifetime to understand and master and I doubt that I will ever be their master, but I chase light and see each day as if it were my last. I live these five concepts each morning when I wake and contemplate them before I sleep. Photography is a way of life, a state of being, a creative release of your personal vision. It is a difficult idea to express because it means something different to each of us as creatives. I believe inspiration comes from seeing and doing and seeing the creations of others. I believe this inspires us to create through our own vision.
