The Dreamer's Guide to Photography: an Introduction

Photography is not just a profession, not even just a hobby. Put plainly, it is an art form that can be by turns world-shaking and intimate. It is the passionate finger that presses the shutter and draws fellow humans into the viewfinder, preserving not just information but emotion. For me personally, as an artist and as a human being, my sessions and shots are an expression of the deep drives and moods of my own heart: waking dreams that find their expression through the lens.

With that in mind, welcome to a five installment series equal parts method and madness. As usual, each post will present a photograph. But more importantly, the inspiration behind the image will be presented and why that particular technique helped to bring life to the vision behind the image. It’s my hope that you the reader will be inspired to forge your own conduit between the merely fantastic and the fantastically true.

So until the next installment, feel free to visit The Twilit Lens at and see what we have to offer you.

Freelance photographer and ponderer of the unusual. I welcome the presence of mystery and the unknown. Wonder is not absent from the universe, and there is still room for the child in those who haven't yet allowed their hearts to wither to dust.
