Anonymous asked: I just have to tell you that you are my favorite photographer in the world, there is something really organic and natural about your photos. Is there anything you can tell us about your thought-process when taking photos? And what do you have in mind during post-processing to achieve the final result?
Thanks Anon! That’s really nice of you! My thought process usually depends on what i’m shooting for. If i’m shooting weddings it’s a completely different story from when i’m shooting for myself, telling someone else’s story versus telling my own. Recently, thanks to being in school, i’ve been learning to use photography itself as my thought process, to figure out the questions i have about actual life.
I usually have more of an aesthetic mindset when i’m post-processing than a philosophical one. It’s usually along the lines of, “i don’t want these blacks too deep” or “i don’t want these greens too emerald”. I’ve rarely used it to achieve any sort of conceptual effect, at least not consciously.
