That moment when you stop looking through the lens as a separate entity, and start looking through as your third eye, is the moment the magic of photography will commence.
Use the camera lens like your eyes. Discover the poignant moments, the special trees, shadows, spirits in the energy around you.
Then, you will become a photographer; not a person with a camera in her hands.
I like to find the unusual, the poignant marriage of words or images that speak to the eyes and heart.
I found this one yesterday at Holy Cross Cemetery in New Jersey.
I call it “Yield”
