||| This is Behind The Lens, where you get to witness the thoughts of the photographer, the ideas during creation, and sometimes just raw emotion. This is my attempt for you to get to know this guy behind the camera, and to understand the thought and process it takes photographers to create memorable images. |||
~As a photographer, I really enjoy taking in the “essence” of moments. That’s one of the reason I became a photographer, to document life and show things from a different perspective. Sometimes I think we move too fast in this fast paced world, and forget the small things. That’s why when I am greeted with good moments and opportunities, I try to savor them with capturing a photograph that conveys the energy and aura of the thing/place I’m shooting.
I was so intrigued with the colors of the sky and water; and how the two different bodies of water were separated by green pastures. You have the Atlantic Ocean on the left, and the Caribbean Sea on the right. It immediately made me think of God-The Creator. How he can make total opposites co-exist and be beautiful. It made me think of how beautiful ‘we as a people’ could be, if we would appreciate our differences and understand that’s what makes us most beautiful.
I’m normally not in a lot of photos, because I’m busy behind the lens. And I normally just capture moments for others to enjoy. But this is my joy, making the visual scene match the heart’s emotions. And thats what this series is about, showing the creator behind the creation. Showing you the details that make my craft and vision unique. I hope you enjoy this series, feel free to comment on photos and spark discussion on things you would like to see in the future.
