Images with Impact

I’ve been thinking lately about all of the millions (billions?) of images out there lately and what separates the cream of the crop from the rest. More than anything else, I think it’s about creating an image with impact. Regardless of the type of imagery you shoot, if you can create an image that touches someone in any meaningful way, you can’t help but leave your mark. The best part is that with all the billions of people in this world having all of their billions of experiences each and every day, it is inevitable that you will connect with someone if you shoot with impact in mind. Impact, for me, occurs in the grandiose and the minute. The spectacular, and even the mundane. If you can evoke an emotion, you can have an impact on people. Nuff said.
