"By being yourself, you put something wonderful in the world that was not there before."
I've always been self-conscious about my work thinking that artistic people would think that it was corny. But the photos I create come from a subconscious place that I can only tap into while shooting... they are authentic to me. And over the years I've realized authenticity matters much more than following trends in the long run. I am not thinking of other images I want to emulate while when taking photos. The location, model, and light dictate my ever decision in regards to how I end up capturing something. Here is a self portrait of me... unipologetocaly the dorky mountain girl I really am. -Laura Austin
