Melissa Reed, Virginia Member Since December 2012 Artist Statement I don't think there was ever a time I wasn't in love with photography. I think I was born with a camera in one hand and a book in the other. Capturing that elusive perfect moment...that is the goal of my work. And it's not the moment when the subject looks perfect...it's the moment that you capture the SOUL of the subject...no matter what that is. My favorite pictures of people are the ones that show their souls...and the same is true of the Earth..
