Each photographer wants to specialize on particular subjects, editing styles and the likes. I enjoy taking portrait shots lately as long as there’s an available light source, yes, I hate to use the flash. LOL! Discovering the details of objects through macro lens is always fascinating, serendipity-like. Landscape as a subject is what I am not that interested in except during sunrise or sundown. I can’t really point out the reason why but I just don’t have the drive to take landscape shots. I still try though. I am not a post-processing addict, I wanted my pictures to stay as they are. I absolutely abandon even the cropping or auto-correcting of my photos. Let the captured photos stay as they are, but of course, it’s just me. Actually, I like one post-processing technique, Orton, it makes the photos of dreamlike quality. But I haven’t done one with the images I took from Nikon D80. Either I am too lazy to try one or I am completely satisfied with them, LOL! Taking photos of flowers is also challenging. I mean, lots of photos of different kind of flowers had been posted on the internet and one should try taking a different angle or perspective of one of the most overused subjects to make it visually appealing and interesting. Another subject I found satisfying, is candid shots. Some may be offended or caught-off handed that's why I always see to it that I can still escape if the subject decides to hit me. LOL!
I enjoy taking candid or street snap shots but sometimes I am not comfortable in taking photos facing them. I don’t know, I thought about their privacy or something. Haha! This feeling leads me to my favorite photography subject – From Behind. I know, it may be like a simple shot taken from the behind of the subject but later I realized, even this kind of shot tells a story.
Examples of my from behind shots.
