Both mentally and photographically the most enlightening times I find are in moments of transition. It’s at these moments that my creativity and my admiration of my subject peaks. As it relates to landscape photography “transition” is likely to be interpreted as the transition between light and dark. This is certainly an accurate interpretation, but it is also true of any subject I photograph or genre of photography I pursue. Photography captures but a split second of the world around us, but still photographs that resonate most are those that capture a moment fleeting and/or seldom unseen. Transition between order/chaos, emotions, light/dark, etc. are those that so clearly stick in our mind. So many of us take these moments for granted, yet they’re so rarely seen.
