About Eyekiss Photography
A long, long time ago, in a far off land called Wigan – at a wedding reception really – heavy camera bag perched on my shoulder, me and a guest stood at the bar tied and gagging for a pint. Picking up his pint he said “Nikon, good camera. Need a good camera to take a good picture. Can’t afford one of them. Wish I could” then he was gone.
I was left feeling a little sad about what he thought and it got me thinking about why I ended up being a Photographer.Here is my conclusion.
Any camera is capable of taking a good picture, even a shoebox pinhole camera. It is only a tool.
A Photographer uses a camera
An Artist uses a paint brush
A Brickie uses a trowel
The only thing needed is for it to be fit for purpose and at best, reliable. Its how you want to use that tool.
For me it’s a means of capturing and sharing that special fleeting moment – like the look on a child’s face safe and secure in his dad’s arms; the woman radiant with confidence and self esteem, or the look on the man’s face when he achieves the impossible.
There are many many more images I try to lookout for and if they are uplifting and inspiring then I know I have been eyekissed.
