moment in time 5-2-10

 

I particapated in the NY Times, Moment in time on May 2, 2010 at 11 AM, eastern standard time.  here is the image that I decided to use

 

I took the image using my 30mm 1.4 mm lens.  My first attempt at using it.  I love my depth of field that was accomplished with this.  The branch is acting like a barrier from me continuing.

Check out other photos that people have submitted.

I am still searching for mine.  (I guess they are overwhelmed with responses) If you find it let me know.

About John-Roy Photography

Photography is the greatest form of self expression. It communicates with my soul; a kind of a “catharsis scream”. This offers me a mental release from my professional career. After using my right brain all day, it is nice to use my left brain to create something meaningful. This brings a yin and yang to my life. When I pick up my camera after work, I prefer to shoot inanimate objects. Using light, shadows and selective focus, I am attempting to give the objects a life force; allowing them to tell a story. Because of this, I sometimes tend to become lost in my perception of light and shadows. It allows me to constantly visualize different angles and perspectives of spaces and even people around me. When I photograph people, I am drawn to capturing them in communal areas. I usually try and catch people off guard to create a pensive state of being which is a window into their souls. You would be surprised how much people tend to let their guard down and become relaxed when they think no one is watching. (Ever notice how differently children behave when they know they are being watched?) I’ve come to this place of artistic expression after experimenting with several other approaches to photography. I finally listened to an art director and a close friend of mine and I redirected my work to reflect my own true artistic expression.
