Many people would like to romanticize a career as a professional photographer. For many of us, the idea of it is practically shoved down our throats: the epic photography of National Geographic stories, all the captivating news photos in the New York Times, and loads of freelance photographers displaying their work on Flickr.
Once in a while, one of these budding photographers shows quite a bit of potential. Seth Jones currently lives in Houston and is working a couple part time jobs, doing photo shoots on the side whenever possible. Here are some of his recent shots.
He has been focusing mainly on portrait photography in his short time, and has achieved some interesting perspectives and has employed some new techniques for his portraits like tiltshift and freelens techniques. When shooting into the sun in portrait sessions, he is at times able to achieve a dreamy sense in his photos.
Other times the lens flare takes over and creates strange sea creatures on top of the subject…Jellyfish?
