Instagram picture

When I move more deeply into my subjects, I draw close, I always try to move with care and without judgment. While my mind may be racing while contemplating things of a technical nature such as shutter speed, F-stops, composition, framing and lighting; my heart is always aware that the most important aspect of a photo is how the person sitting in front of me is feeling. Are we connecting? Do they feel comfortable? What feelings are they conveying?

This is Debsara, she is 60 years old and has four children. She and her family live in a temporary shelter made of wood and blue plastic tarps. Their home was destroyed from the floods after the earthquake four year ago.
Her new Watts of Love solar light will allow her to do many things at night, including sewing. It is an honor to be a witness to the most powerful human emotion—hope.
