For some it is about capturing the moment, all natural and as if it were happening right then and then. (Ok, I envy that).
But, for me it is about something else. What? I don’t quite know. I know it when I see it (and others may not).
I don’t give a s**t if the highlights are blown or the shadows block fine detail. I don’t really worry if there is chroma noise or the WB isn’t optimal and the colour a little wonky. (Sometimes I like that).
Quite simply I like what I like. I like it if others like it too, but as I’m not a professional and don’t make money out of photography I don’t need to focus on anyone else’s wishes and can be as wacky or as dull as I please.
Obviously, along the way constructive criticism is welcome. it is nice to see where other people find fault, which can be addressed or not. As much as it is important to cultivate one’s own style, it is also important to take advice and keep on learning.
My photography is defined by my limitations.
That’s my cuppa tea. I’m stickin’ with it.
