This is a repost from my Myspace....Would love to know what everyone thinks....Enjoy!
My goal for this blog was to create a sort of picture dictionary….so to speak. I love photography. I love it more when I don’t do it to get paid. I know that’s an oxymoron, but if you think about it, there is less pressure, more joyful exuberance when the moment that is captured happens to convey the exact emotion you felt that when you took it. Don’t get me wrong, it’s nice to get a paycheck for my weddings I shoot, for they definitely pay the bills, but it’s more satisfying to grab my camera, a couple lenses, a bottled water, comfy shorts and shoes, and a pair of shades to just to go toolin around the city or county countryside boondocks looking for anything interesting to shoot. Some of these I obviously did not take, however they display the emotion to complete the ‘pic definition’….
Here is what I’ve found….I’m sure there are many, many others, but here is a small snippet of the first unofficial ‘Rach Photo Dictionary’…..be careful, there may be a quiz later.
