I am an UIsterman who loves taking pictures, and is delighted when others take time to view them. I also enjoy viewing pictures which inspire me to improve my picture making. All my photographs are as they emerged from my cameras / 'phone. No Photoshop, HDR, etc. - only minor cosmetic manipulation.
To me, photography means attempting to say something new about the subject I have pictured. Ideally, my viewer's mind should be engaged, and his eye enticed. Someday, I may actually manage to achieve this !
I am a Christian [ which, literally, means ' belonging to Christ ' ] - a follower of Jesus : this informs my choice of subject matter, and my care in portraying people with sensitivity and dignity. I am, therefore, uneasy seeing young women de-humanised, their bodies displayed as sexual objects.
Please don't let that put you off : I'll not preach at you - except to quote Francis Schaeffer : " Man has a purpose : to be in a relationship with God .... when he forgets his purpose he forgets who he is and what life means. "
" I'm trying to get from the cradle to the grave without hurting too many people. " [ Robert Duvall, Actor ]
