Tytia Habing

This month, I interview photographer Tytia Habing:

Tytia Habing {Effingham, Illinois} I received two separate university degrees, neither of which are photography related.  Such is life. You never know where it will take you. It's where I picked up a camera for the first time with the intention of making something artful, so it wasn't all for naught. The majority of my adult life I spent living in the Cayman Islands and three years ago moved home to Illinois with my husband and son.

The Allegory & Metaphor in Pixels ~ Kris Vockler

Metaphors and allegories you say? There are those in the photo world who firmly plant two feet and say the best photographs are the ones that are technically perfect and sharp. I contend that they are not. Some may feel this way, and that is just fine. I'm drawn to the photos with less focus and less than optimal aperture settings. The shots that give me the greatest joy to create and view are the ones that tell a story. That story may be an emotion, and with luck it's a metaphor or even an allegory.
