I've been doing a lot of thinking lately about where I want to go with my photography.
For years it's been just a hobby with a few etsy sales and portrait sessions for friends/family. I think I'm ready to do more. I would love to make it my full time job. So, that's left me thinking about what I want to offer and what to photograph. Today I was home sick and decided to watch my What Remains: The Life and Work of Sally Mann dvd and I was struck deep by her philosophy on art.
"...the things that are close to you, are the things you can photograph the best..."
"and unless you photograph what you love, you are not going to make good art."
~ sally mann
It's that simple. I love to photograph nature and animals. I have some ideas brewing about how to bring those two loves together. It's going to happen.
