room to breathe
In my previous post I talked about my word for the year, AWARE. So when I received an email from a woman who’s blog I’ve been following for a few years, offering an online course to shoot still photography, I knew it was no coinsidence. Shooting stills isn’t what I normally do, in fact, I have very little experience with it. For some reason, this seemed the year to try something new. One lesson a week. Do a little shooting and learn a bunch about photography. Its called be still 52.
We’re only two lessons in but I’m already more purposeful in what I see, in what my images look like. We are so used to snapping a bunch of photos with our phone and even our dslr’s, its digital after all, doesn’t cost to take a bunch of photos. But I want more out of this year. I want to breathe. Notice the details. Grab the best light. And maybe learn a thing or two that will impact my other photography and who knows, maybe impact how I look at things everyday.
This weeks challenge, take a walk, see what’s around you, notice the little things. Breathe and let your subject breathe.
