NATURE, PEOPLE, AND PET PHOTOGRAPHY
While this blog is more varied in content (you can interpret that as it’s a more personal blog), my professional blog is at Barb Kellogg Photography. You can find out more about portrait services, too. That website also serves as a portfolio for images of nature, people and pets; and gateway to nature photography prints available for purchase.
WHY DO I ENJOY PHOTOGRAPHY?
I enjoy the challenge of capturing what I see, or what I want to see. The camera and lens are tools I use to capture a moment—whether real or abstract or somewhere in between. Photography continually challenges me, both technically and creatively.
Nature’s first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold. Her early leaf’s a flower; But only so an hour. Then leaf subsides to leaf. So Eden sank to grief, So dawn goes down to day. Nothing gold can stay. ~Nothing Gold Can Stay, Robert Frost
WHAT DOES MY PHOTOGRAPHY MEAN TO ME?
Photography reflects my desire to capture a moment and preserve that memory forever. This poem best represents the motivation behind why I photograph—because I recognize the transience of life—a beautiful flower…an old car abandoned in the desert…a dog in her last days…a smile that will last forever. My desire to capture a moment…because nothing gold can stay. And on a less serious note—photography is just plain fun!
