As I begin this new blogging adventure, I’m compelled to share WHY I “push the button” for a specific image that I want to capture.
This image is an example…Rodeo Cove is a beautiful beach at the south end of the Marin Headlands and just north of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. I believe all photographers love to wander around the area they’re in, looking “up” to find that perfect angle of the view they’re trying to capture.
I typically do the same thing, until I saw this. The single footstep just past the receding water and accentuated by the embedded rock, profoundly caught my eye. And my personal motto is “if I like what I see…I push the button”, so I did!
Looking at this picture now you have to wonder a couple of things: where was this step leading to?; where is the other step?; Is that an impression, or is it raised? Where does the water come from…a lake, a stream, a tidal pool?
A photographers goal is the invoke emotion in the viewer. Most viewers don’t give an image the time to form an emotion, but once in a while, something happens inside their gut… something catches their eye…something. What is it? Every viewer will have their own opinion of what they see. Lot’s of questions, but isn’t that the point?
What do YOU see?
Thanks for reading as I take another “Footstep” forward…
