My favorite photographs in general are candid shots. I love little hidden moments and looks. On the other hand, I love getting that natural beaming smile out of people. Usually the one they think impossible. Or conversely, that serious contemplative look that gives a little bit more than a smile can.
Photography has helped me not only see the world a little differently but myself as well. It has helped me come out of my shell. Learn more about myself while I learn about others. Helped me see my self as I try and capture the essence of those around me.
