Chance encounters arise when you are out taking snapshots.
When taking a picture, you are not simply snipping out a slice of time. Facing your subject, focus on your feelings and then, when you feel the peak of the moment rise, capture it with your camera. Instead of simply pushing the shutter button, I want to cherish the emotions and encounters I discover at that time. This moment becomes a way to communicate with your heart- it’s an irresistible habit.
Even if you don’t understand the local language, the camera works as a communication tool.
In order to express my feelings in the moment they appear it is important that I’m able to quickly compose my pictures right there on the spot. It’s with a highly expressive camera and a PRO lens that am I able to capture the world so realistically.
