BEHIND THE LENS
I am a self taught photographer with over 35 years experience.
I adore black & white, I adore the black background and I adore people.
The "eye" is the most important thing, whether it be the photographers or the subjects. A famous UK Hollywood actress once said:
"I’ve noticed that the people who started on film still have the ability to see the person in front of them. Whereas for a lot of photographers who have only ever worked in digital, the relationship between the photographer and the person who they’re taking a picture of sort of doesn’t exist anymore. They’re looking at a computer screen as opposed to the person."
It really is that simple.
