You see, I’m all about the tones and the shapes in my photography, no matter what I’m shooting, but few people will get that. There are a lot of photographers out there who think it’s all about the subject, except it really isn’t. The brain responds to shape, colour, and pattern more readily than it does to subject (incidentally this is even the case in language), releasing endorphins instantly when a favourable combination is hit upon. That doesn’t necessarily mean bungee-jumping off a tall building with your camera, or dicing with death as you try to snap a missile speeding over your head. Endorphins are what give you feelings of joy, that in turn make you smile and feel love and pleasure. Good art, and photography is all about the endorphin rush. That’s what photographers and artists, and appreciators of all kinds of art get addicted to. So are you just a photographer or are you an artist? Do you appreciate the art in the mundane details as much as you love the excitement of being daring and controversial?
