{personal} happy new year!

*Some personal favorites of my own work from 2010

My fiancé's brother recently posed the questions:

"Is photography an art form to capture the reality of our life? Is it a fictional format to depict what we personally wish life were like?"

I find the second part so true about my own photography. I'm always aspiring to create something "prettier" or something that looks better than what is really there. And sometimes I feel bad about that, because isn't that lying? Am I too controlled by my own perfection and society's opinion of what is aesthetically pleasing? Or is that simply what makes me an artist?
