Victoria O’Leary: okay with the imperfect

I feel like film has made me less of a perfectionist. Maybe that is a good thing and maybe it’s a bad thing, I am sure people could debate either way.

My heart is drawn to the imperfect….I mean I certainly know the rules…I have a strong foundation, but film has changed me – from the days of meticulously editing my digital images so they would look just {not} right. It has made me ok with broken rules, some of my favorite images are OOF, double-exposed, sun-flared, with peoples heads cut off – all done on purpose ….and occasionally because of a happy accident. (Remember this first image we ran from one of my favorites YANphotography is EXACTLY what I am talking about!!)
