Photographic Subject Matter

November 2nd, 2009

The key to making good photography is to get the camera in front of something interesting. Putting the camera¬† in an interesting place or looking closely at something of interest usually make good pictures. I try to find clients that can get me in front of something worthy of¬† photographing. If the product, person, or place isn’t of interest to the intended viewer, then there’s only so much I can do to make a successful photograph. “It is what it is; I just take pictures of it.” My job as a photographer is to recognize the qualities of a subject that are the most intriguing and focus on those qualities.

Finding a good subject matter for photographs has been the driving force in my life. It drives almost everything I do, including having two kids. I told my wife that I wanted kids so that I would have someone to play with, but the truth is I needed portrait subjects.
