Shooting What I Feel

I have probably mentioned this before, but my own theory of photography involves images that tend to fall into three categories:

  1. Shooting what is in front of the camera
  2. Shooting what I see
  3. 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.
