Once Upon A Time…
Once upon a time, there lived a large and diverse group of magical seers. These alchemists had the power to meld reality with the past, the present, and the future. In the service of light, as the exploiters of color and guardians of form, they captured the heart and soul of their times.
Yes, you probably guessed it – I am talking about us. Everyone that is making art from this wonderful medium called photography. Truly, we live in a time that is worthy of a fairy tale; as far as the opportunity we have for making, altering, and sharing images.
All it takes is a little black box full of film or digital wizardry, electronic editing, vision, and the age old urge to create. It’s a fairly simple magical brew!
So, take this day to cherish the moment, the light, and this amazing ability of ours. Compose your shot with care, check your exposure, find a telling f/stop and shutter speed, perfect your focus, and give thanks to the camera gods… for we are truly blessed.
Thank you Anna for musing with us. I love the reminder that photography truly is magic. You can find more of Anna’s work on her blog – Alchemy of Art, textile and beadwork website – VanDemark Designs, or Flickr.
