Photography: Begs questions……..

Have to admit to being pretty much a novice re photography. I see opportunities. But, the mechanics of the camera, so far, escape me. I will eventually gather all the how to’s up into smooth actions in the field. But, for now, I do more seeing and thinking….preferrable to me.

Nature shots are more about light, shapes, textures and spirituality. Old structures, man made presence, beg questions. The Who’s, What’s, How’s, etc. make me stand there and imagine. Do you do that too? Such outings, often lead to back at home research to answer those questions.

broken top SBCemeteries are another place that give me pause…a balance between nature, man and spirit.

    you are doing just fine.

    you can learn as much as you want about the tech, but you can either shoot or you can’t.

    apparently you can.

    like most avocations you do this for you.

    ahhhh…self gratification.

    I do that too, in fact I tend to add emotion to structures… Which is strange I suppose, but ’tis how I view things… (mind you, when I name appliances, microwaves etc.. I openly admit… ’tis odd 😉 ) xPenx

      You made me chuckle…out loud! Well, I have named cars. But never the microwave. I should name my pillows because I do seem to have an ongoing love affair with them! Thanks for dropping by xPenx

    I teach the mechanics of photography every day. And one thing I have found with my students is, with all that knowledge if they don’t have the eye for a good photograph then it’s fairly worthless. It’s not about all the fancy equipment it’s what you do with it like any other trade. Thinning out the dross is essential and sequencing images is equally important. One may take the occasional good image but its consistency that counts. An image can be good but it’s in the context of a larger body of work that’s what can make it a great image.

    I look forward to your images in each blog, they tell me of times gone by and I make up my own stories of what I may wrongly call romantically (for a Scot) the Wild West and the great depression, in reality I don’t know where they are taken but it doesn’t stop me enjoying them. Keep up the good work. John

    A brilliant “collection” of photographs.
    I especially like how you framed the objects.
