― Diane Arbus
I had intentions with the photo. Frame was set. I was going to capture a moment. I think we all know where I was going with this. Caption would read “When I grow up I want to be just like her”. However, every good photographer/artist knows you need to make sure the composition is just right. I knew it was all wrong; but, I went ahead because I love the two beings so much I just had to take the shot. I would see if I could “weed out” the noise in the background later.
After uploading the photo, I decided, it’s just one of those shots you need to leave “as is”. DOF is good in the foreground, but, the rest is just a hot mess. I leave it and share it because every photograph has its own story. The dude in the background is always by my side at the hunter rings. We stand together on the same line and our clicks are in sync 99% of the time. I still have a few fails. I can see that he is wondering what I’m up to at this moment. Well, my friend, I have little secret 🙂
