Seeing your light

adelaide professional photographer
Hi! I have been thinking a lot lately about the reluctance of so many women to be photographed. I know we all, men and women. suffer from this at times. Think about the people closest to you – your spouse, your Mum or Dad, your best friend. What YOU see isn’t what THEY see. We just see Mum, or best friend Jane, but when they see their own image, it is filtered with childhood memories, their own values and expectations and body image. What’s amazing about this job as a photographer is when you look through the camera lens at someone, you are looking for beauty. Whether the subject is a beautiful sunset, a new rose bud or a person, as photographer Tamara Lackey says there’s a light in them. I love that! It’s so true.

Is this true of you – are you shy about being photographed?

    This is so true about how we view ourselves..
    It will make me think twice next time my son wants to take a picture of me. Thanks for sharing that idea
