Understanding Photography by Heron Yang

It's so common that you found it hard to understand some others' photography. It happens to me all the time, and it may happen to you as well when you're trying to understand my photography. However, it doesn't matter! I believe that the photography is not about creating photos liked by all the people, but instead, it's about making pictures that mean something to someone. And, it will already be too much for us to work on.

I started to do photography since around 2011, and the photos I am trying to shoot has been changing all the time. However, it's a process for myself to understand what I am aiming for in my photography, and interestingly, what I am doing may be totally different to whatever you care! And, it doesn't matter as well.

So, I'd be happy if you like my photos, and it's also fine if you don't. In my photography, I am trying to make myself to shoot moments that mean something. In order to that successfully, I should be close to the subject, involve the subject, and feel it. I may not do it well enough at this point, and this is the motivation for me to work a better version of my own photography.
