Gabriella McSwain, Austin Texas Member Since July 2013 Artist Statement Three words...LET LIGHT SPEAK...Those 3 words encompass the mission for my photography.
While working in front of the camera modeling worldwide I began realizing that being behind the camera was an equally if not more gratifying part of the process of creating images....Taking a picture can mean documenting the honest truth about something...a very organic event that just "happens" as the photo is taken. It is a free process with very little manipulation. Adversely it can be an amazing adventure into whatever the mind can fathom. I love translating images I "see" in my mind into photographs, bringing them into this world to share with others.... Using mainly natural light I photograph nature, people and whatever comes in my path really. I love photography; the light, the shapes and the expression it offers... but as with everything else in life, it is an ongoing process of discovery and learning...It's a journey I hope will last for the rest of my life. Welcome to my universe. :)
