My Uncle Ben told me the secret to being a good photographer was to take lots and lots of pictures, then only share the best ones. So every day I try to share one great photo. That isn’t as easy as it sounds.
When I travel, I take so many I love, and I want to share them all. This project has taught me to edit and find the one image which really captures the essence of what I am seeing and feeling rather than 20 which become tedious to the viewer.
When I am home, I get caught up in the daily grind. It is sometimes hard to stop and take a few pictures. Knowing I need a picture for the blog forces me to look at the world a little differently. I always stop and think, would that be a good picture?
Taking lessons with Paul D’Andrea, I learned to apply basic techniques, to make great effects happen deliberately. He taught me to bring my point of view into each photos. So this is my point of view.
In one of his rare, quiet moments I snapped this photo of Benny, the Roundpeg office cat.read more
