Those that know me know I am a heavy left brain thinker and right brain need not apply. This has proven to be a successful trait in my life and my career. When I started getting serious about photography, I always tried to just capture what nature gave me, in the broadest form. Ultra wide angle, vast landscape views. What I ended up with were shots that everyone else has taken. I realized if I wanted to take my photography to the next level, things had to get less technical and more abstract. I need to paint a picture with a scene, and the scene needs to tell a story. It needed to draw the viewers interest to do more than just glance at the image.
Although looking back, I am happy that I had the creative idea to shoot a reflection to add more drama to a shot, but that I also had the foresight to see something in a picture to make it better is what makes me so happy about this shot. This photo might not win any awards or shoot me into a career of landscape photography, but this gives me hope that there is a creative side to me and I am getting better at photography. I know it’s small, but it’s nice to know you’re advancing at something you work so hard at.
