Three Things – I’m Gulity
Recently I read a blog post by Anthony Mrvica about 3 Stupidly Simple Reasons Why Most People’s Photography Does Not Improve. The three things are:
1) You don’t take your camera with you
2) You are going to fast
3) You are worried about what people will think
I will admit that I am guilty of all three of these. Although maybe not as much as I was a year ago.
I now rarely go anywhere that I don’t have my camera bag with me. I haven’t gotten to the point that I carry it where ever I go, but it is usually in the car. I guess I learned that the hard way when I didn’t have it with me a few times and wish I had.
I use to go from place to place without looking around me. Lately I have slowed down, not to the point that I am getting beeped by going to slow. I look around and do see things that would be a great picture.
And that’s when the third thing comes in place. I don’t always stop to take the shot. And it usually is with an underlining feeling of what people will think. The person behind me. The helpful individual who may stop and ask me if everything is alright.
But I am starting to move away from doing these things and breaking the rules.
