A picture produces and image, but a capture is so much more

"To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place... I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them." -Elliott Erwitt


Making ordinary into extraordinary. The mundane into something majestic through use of perspective. A picture produces and image, but a capture is so much more. Captures are felt, shared, experienced and lived. When you take a picture it is true, you are composing an image, but you are also capturing light, shadow, depth, contrast and more. You capture a moment in time that only happens once. You capture memories and preserve them for others to experience. You capture far away distant places and bring them to others throughout the world. You capture emotions, share them with others and invoke emotions in the viewer. You capture character and beauty and majesty and truth. You capture history and events. You capture spirit and you capture love and you capture lives. Cameras are a great tool for creating captures but your eyes, ears and heart are by far the greatest.

Pictures are great for entertaining friends on Facebook and Instagram, but captures remind us that we are alive.
