Random photography. No post editing. - Except for the last two photos, which I liked but had post edited so I could use the image for a copper etching.
The idea that you take a photo and don't up the saturation, blur the background or distort the focal point is what basic, salt of the Earth photography is about. You should be able to pick up any camera and take a damn good picture.
In a good photograph, you should hear the laughter, the crack of the person's smile or the deep silence in nature. You should feel closer and know the person better, just by looking at their image. A friend at church takes the best protrait photography of anyone I know. He captures part of the human experience in photography, & you feel apart of that experience when look into his images. That's what I strive for (even if I don't always succeed.)
