i love being around pregnant woman. i can't go into it completely otherwise it will go on for pages (!) but they are magical and i love photographing them. i also have been experimenting with 'flaws',, purposefully blurring and softening images, focusing on other parts of the image, maybe trying to insight a particular feeling or mood. this is shooting much like i did in the past back when i was in film school ~ i was always the mood seeker..., going with what i feel, emotively photographing, overexposing, underexposing, composing with negative spaces and lines....this is kind of - roll with me, like parenthood and birth...i'm liking this comparison.
there is technically correct exposure, and perhaps compositions, but much like film cameras, so much art is created within the spaces of what is considered 'correct' and 'perfect'. i love documenting and i love creating emotions through images even more. feel like i'm sinking back into myself the more i am behind the lens, the more i am peeling away from the kids, and going back and re creating myself again doing what i wholeheartedly LOVE.
