Snapshot Photography

Here's how I explain my 'snapshot photography'.

Basically, it's walking around with a camera and shooting whatever looks interesting. I like odd and cute things, but also the ordinary.

For the most part the photos are happenstance, unless I find a box of stuff in my house and try to see if I can make them interesting. I'm surprised at how some old coffee cans in a wooden milk box can bring out the photographer in me.

When I worked for a newspaper in 1990, I was reporter and cameraman. That's when I got used to having a camera with me all the time.

Only recently have I begun to check out YouTube videos and watch photographer shows on TV. While I may never go to Alaska to shoot moose or bear with my camera, the skills remain the same. They also help to know what to look for before you take a photo.

A lot of experienced photographers will set up and take one great shot or the same shot with different exposures or lenses.

With snapshot photography, to me, it's more of an in-the-moment shot.

Or I'll be walking along any Nutley street in New York, Jersey City, Nutley, New Brunswick or your neighborhood and spot something or even walk past it but I'm suddenly drawn back to shoot it.

That doesn't mean that my photos aren't getting better, but it doesn't take anything away from the thousands of earlier photos, either.

So I end up with, after hours and hours of walks through various parts of anywhere, USA, I end up with thousands of photos.

Some are better than others and some need to have their art drawn out with cropping. I don't use a lot of photo tricks, but sometimes the photo I got wasn't the one I thought I got.

In selecting photos for my collections, I search through thousands on-topic, pulling out photos with potential, then the culling begins.

It ends with my favorite shots. They may not be your favorite shots, and they may never win photo competitions, but there is something in each selected photo that speaks to me.
