As a photographer who has been allowed the fortunate position of capturing the split second in time of ones soul has defiantly become a great honor. So as it is sometimes customary to take extra photos to give back to the individual therefore returning their soul back to them, I share them here.
If that little tidbit in cultural beliefs didn’t get your attention then how about this? I love the challenge of trying to capture the action and soul of events and people and freezing them in time.
I enjoy working in the background, lacking the commitment it takes to be a wedding photographer the enthusiasm to be a portrait photographer and the patience to be a landscape photographer. On a personal level with my own photography, I don’t find much challenge in taking photos of any subject in static positions under preset lighting. I thrive off of the dynamics of various sports.
Ok back to the soulcaptor thing. Since I do claim to be part Choctaw, I can say that I have always loved the imaginative thought process behind those very ancient beliefs that I speak of . Does my tribe in particular believe a photo or video captures the soul? well honestly I don’t know.
Do I believe they captures the soul…
Of course I do…. don’t you??
