I have probably mentioned this before, but my own theory of photography involves images that tend to fall into three categories:
- Shooting what is in front of the camera
- Shooting what I see
- Shooting what I feel
My goal as much as possible is to shoot images that fall into categories 2 and 3, and for me this image from the shore of lake Ontario last Sunday falls into category 3. The light was dramatic, and in post I heavily accentuated the drama of the light to match the emotional response I was feeling.
