As I mentioned in a previous post, I would try to write something about some of the people I meet in Central Park . People of the Park I will call it (POP) These posts could be anyone from the performers , vendors or maybe tourists that I come across . I would like to think it may be informative about the person or persons . Maybe it’s just a few photos and a name, could be more . I’m not sure , just an idea I have as I meet others . Truth is I am not sure where I’m taking this WordPress , it began as a place to show my photos . But , as I see others posts I now find myself thinking what to say on a daily basis , other ideas etc . I am definitely not a writer , though I’m trying . Interesting today I had an offer from someone to write a guest appearance post weekly or monthly , that could be interesting too . Ok now I’m babbling .
If your still reading :
I will make me the first P.O.P .
A little bit about me : I enjoy to photo as you may have noticed . I used to be trigger happy , shooting everything in sight . Now , I’ve learned patience and to try to catch moods or feelings in my photos . I prefer most to street photo , shooting people ( not literally) but enjoying the nature shots as most people in for the winter . Animals as well as people take a kind of patience and good eye . To get the shot , what a rewarding feeling ! Anyone with a camera can photo the Statue of Liberty any day anytime . But no one will ever be able to photo the moments ever again . I believe to many people walk down a street , photo a person or a crowd of people in black and white and call that street photography . Trust me , it’s much more then that . You need to find the moment , feel the emotion . Is the person happy or sad , what are they thinking . It’s this that takes patience and time . The right face , the right mood . Well let me end that little gabbing session about that .
If you decide to read the last paragraph you will learn my goals in photography ! Come on your almost there .
What’s my goal in photography ? Well , it’s not only to share my street photography , my nature photos or cityscapes here in WordPress . I hope to be “discovered” . But , discovered for what you may ask ? Or truth is you probably haven’t read this far . But if your still here . I want to be a traveling photographer . Of course I can always go to a little studio and photo kids / weddings and other type of posed photos but , that’s not me . ( though I would happily do “background ” photos for you , see last post ) Maybe you see from my last post about brides , I don’t want to be that type of photographer and if you’ve followed my wordpress or photo sites you see I photo more then people . I want to photo life , traditions , people , cities of the world I could change my POP – people of the Park to POW – People of the World . Whether it’s a small village in Bulgaria or London , England . If anyone is in need of a photographer to photo their area. In the near future I hope to soon be sending photos to places around the world ( travel agencies etc . ) in hopes to be invited to do photos for their area or companies . Who knows , maybe they’ll invite me to photo for them . I’ll find a way . It would be a kind of nomadic life . But I welcome it . I’ll have my camera and that’s all I need.
And if anyone has other thoughts our ideas , please feel free to share comment here or contact me directly at Steve.Edreff@gmail.com .
Trust me , there’s a reason I stay behind the camera not in front .
