What’s this Blog About? Pictures, Photos, People and Passion…that’s a passion for photography, which I will always have. I love capturing images of people. To me, it is something truly special to create a photo, basically a two dimensional object made of paper and ink, yet represents so much more! It’s a memory of those first steps, the family reunion, the walk down the aisle….A unique moment in time, showing emotions, personalities, relationships…things that are such an important part of life!
I find photography very rewarding and want to share more about the portrait process with anyone who’s interested. This is also a place to learn more about the products offered on my website www.izardphoto.com.
Did you know that cameras were invented in the 1800’s, but did not really come into popular use until the 1950’s and 60’s? Many people could not afford an artist’s sketch or painting and had no way to capture important events other than through family stories and tales. Time passed, children grew, couples married …. can you imagine a life without photographs? No pictures on the wall, no family scrapbook or album?
In many of the old black and white photos we see very serious expressions, no smiling at all! Getting the family portrait taken was serious business, it was such a rare and important event that many people took it very seriously.
