WAXHAW, NC – Let’s begin where I started 5 years ago and peel back the motivation and passion of being a photographer. It’s actually simple, keep your camera in your pocket or around your neck and just take photographs of what you see – whether abstract or of people or anything really. I started just taking photographs of inanimate objects or cool looking moments as I walk around living the emotional moments of life.
I might have just found myself just walking and “ping” there it is, and I simply click; sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn’t, but you will know instinctively when it does. I once shot a town picture of Waxhaw, NC; my first thought was how to create a moment that captured my own style. I kept thinking of the stereotypical shots of Waxhaw, and I was not going to do what everyone else does, be it the bridge, a train rolling by or a water tower – nope, I was going to make this one a Darren Bowen Photography moment.
Next week let’s continue to look at the motivation and the passion of photography. I hope to give you a peek into the windows of a journey that you will find rewarding and satisfying. So please join me next week in the Adventures in Photography with Darren Bowen and how to begin your photography adventure.
