One of my Flickr friends and followers recently commented, "I love your ability to transform simple things into such attractive photos." Elif is from France and a talent with black and white, so her comment was an honor. When you read the written words of many of our best photographers, you often hear something akin to the following quote by large format photographer extraordinaire, Paul Caponigro:
“The key is to not let the camera, which depicts nature in so much detail, reveal just what the eye picks up, but what the heart picks up as well.”
It appears that our best photographs are capable of revealing the uncommon within the common. When as a fine art photographer, you sharpen and refine this instinctual process, you find that no matter where you are, your eyes and right brain are in a constant visual compilation of the present, isolating segments which provoke that internal, ah ha.
