Fast shutter speeds help but being there to capture the moment is what I love
Snappy, snap, snap, snap
I’ve always taken photographs, probably because I can’t draw. I’d experiment with any camera I could get my hands on, I’d try opening the back of cameras to get light leaks, I’d paint over prints with bleach mixes to remove areas. It wasn’t exactly a science more an effort to make something unusual and unexpected.
Then, I found Photoshop 5 and it changed everything, well maybe not everything but it allowed me to take an image and start manipulating it in ways that I could actually control. Fast forward to RAW files and Lightroom and pushing pixels has never been more fun.
