I’ve done it…

A photograph is more than an image frozen on paper or plastered on your computer screen; it is a recording of a moment in life.

I have a professional website. After a few jobs, I realized that I need a place to show the images and allow the clients to purchase prints. So here it is: R Howard Photography.

I guess that means I’m on my way to being a professional. Wish me luck.

I am including this shot of the butterfly for a few reasons: 1) It’s my favorite butterfly image so far, and 2) a butterfly seems appropriate right now because it represents new beginnings.

My dream is to create images that evoke some kind of response, that elicit emotions, but it is larger than that. I want to make an impact with my camera. I want to make a difference, even if it is in one person’s life. I don’t know how I will do that yet, but I believe in the power of the photograph.

A photograph is more than an image frozen on paper or plastered on your computer screen; it is a recording of a moment in life. When you look at the picture, your mind and heart see more than just an image, because you remember that moment and you recall the emotions you felt.

Even if you do not know the person in the photograph or have never physically experienced the scene portrayed in the picture, there could be something the image that touches you.

I want to capture those emotions; more than that, I want to convey those emotions.

  1. Agree with your comments 100%. I still tear up when I look at the picture of the one lone man standing in front of a tank at Tiananmen Square. Photographs more than paintings elicit my emotions because I know that the scene at that moment of the camera snap was real. Love you Ramona, May 2014 be the year we can actually share a hug and raise a cup or two together.

I'd love to hear what you think.
