In my previous “A Day of Running” post, I showed a book called “Expressive Photography” which is by the Shutter Sisters. It’s a guide to “shooting from the heart”. It contains the inspiration I’m seeking for capturing the type of photos I’d like to take.
In the introduction, Tracey Clark, founder of Shutter Sisters, wrote:
“It’s a powerful thing to use our viewfinder to picture the world around us. Photography provides us with the perfect way to express ourselves — as daughters, as mothers, as women, as artists. With each image, no matter the subject at hand, we illuminate what matters most to use, and that is not only inspiring, it’s transformative.”
I believe Clark’s thoughts express why I have been so completely drawn to photography at this point in my life. I want to pay attention — to every moment, every person, every place, every being that is important to me. I want to remember all of it as the treasure that it is.
