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.
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 just a few images 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 hard to stop and take a few pictures. Knowing I need a pictures for the blog forces me to look at the world a little differently. I always stop and think, would that be a good picture?
I believe interesting photos are not just about the applying basic techniques, to make great effects happen deliberately. My favorite photos are the ones which bring the photographer’s point of view forward, so you see the world thorugh their eyes.
This is my point of view.
