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.

  • welcome to slowing down, here’s to seeing the ordinary and making it extraordinary.

  • Week 2 and already I am benefiting from the talks and tips both in my photography and in my mindset. So glad I took the leap. It is amazing when you slow down how much more you are aware of your surrounding like viewing your tree through the lattice.
