Wild Lily-of-the-Valley (Maianthemum canadense)

" I am convinced that the majority of people who photograph never reach the level of artistic expression of which they are capable. The emotion and intellect present at the time of exposure is often so weakened by haphazard technique that the final presentation-the print-does not communicate the intensity felt by the photographer for his subject. Technique is not an end in itself; to often it is a stumbling block that bars the path to aesthetic statement. When controlled, it enhances the creative process."
