Poetic Life Photography

White roses do nothing to me. Unless, they have released the intention of your hand, to slip slowly in mine. Unless they got the luck to taste a bit of your gravitation to afterwards fall into my unique dimension. Unless that, white roses are just another essential substance in my world. Nothing special, nothing distinct and especially nothing special to me.

I was contacted by the lovely people of the FunkJazz Kafe to shoot their movie premier of their documentary Diary of a Decade at BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) last month. The premiere, well as the photos came out great. The first 10 photos and the next group of four were shot by yours truly. Def have to get in the habit of watermarking for future reference, but I did get my photography credit of course. Truly blessed and happy to have had the opportunity to work with FunkJazz Kafe  and Jason Orr. 


Always looking for more opportunities to shoot and grow. Contact me @ PoeticLifePhotography@gmail.com for booking/pricing. 

Editing

            When I first started taking pictures the idea of “Photoshoping” made my skin crawl. I felt that the best picture is the picture you take the first time - not the one you edit. My rant always started off with: “The best pictures in history weren’t photoshopped…”; but that was history. Photography as a whole has significantly changed since the time of Henri-Cartier Bresson or even a Gordon Parks.

            I thought I could be a “purist” photographer, but being a purist photographer is as simple as seeing something interesting and hitting the shutter button. 

           That’s what I believe a photographer is and should do; they find the moment that others over look, capture it, then share it with everyone to see. The editing process seemed like it altered that moment to me; it felt like after editing, the moment wasn’t pure anymore. 

           Photography is about the creation of images by the manipulation of light. Who says that I can’t bring up the exposure just a bit, boost the color of that sunrise, heal the laugh lines of a sensitive model? I want my photos to speak for itself, why not give it a bit of an accent to be more interesting. I have been using Lightroom for the past couple months and I don’t see mutated beings, but a moment with focus, a guitar tuned. I want to better this craft.
