25+ Inspirational Photography by Eric Gustafson

Today I’ve planned to show you some of the inspirational photographs taken by Eric Gustafson. Eric currently resides in Austin, but has lived throughout the United States (including Seattle, Florida, Indiana, Virginia & Texas) during his lifetime. He has been working odd jobs and taken small freelance work to support his love of digital photography. Hoping to continue his work on a more broad level, he is currently open to the possibility of any new opportunity that would allow him to continue doing what he loves.

In one of an Online interview, while questioning his process of creating and shooting both urban and rural environments, he said :

To achieve my results, I either drive or bike to various locations and explore on foot, armed with only my camera and sometimes a tripod for the low light situations. Nothing is ever pre-arranged. No lighting setup. No props. No actors. When I find myself exploring and traversing areas unknown and new to me, armed only with my camera and a curious perspective, time slips away and I see things the way I feel they were always meant to be seen. I capture them. I take them afterwords and play with them. I get lost in them. To me it is an intimate process of projecting myself and my perspective onto the world, and the images that I produce are a very personal reflection of myself.

I always try my best to get everything right before I snap the shutter, but if I feel there is something I can do in the post (coloration, adjust lighting, etc.) I have no problem doing it. Ansel Adams is quoted as saying dodging and burning are steps to take care of mistakes God made in establishing tonal relationships. I couldn’t agree more and treat the use of Photoshop the same way (since it is, essentially, a digital dark room). Photography snobs with their rule of thirds and immediately dismissive view of any aesthetically chosen post work as “ruining” an image are essentially slapping him and many others in the face. In my opinion the only sort of photographic ‘morals’ that should exist for anyone who takes pictures should be for photo-journalists. And one I am not, so I choose to see the world as well as I can imagine it!
