Photography Tip: Stop. Pull Over. Pay Attention.
Today’s photography tip doesn’t require you to buy any special equipment of grasp any concepts or even practice to get it right. I just want you to slow down in life, notice what’s happening around you and find things you want to capture in your photography. Sometimes when you’re driving, you might want to pull over and park, because you see something that you want to take a photo of. You might want to walk a new area or even your own neighborhood, to seek out interesting subjects.
When you get in this mindset, you’ll see photo opportunities everywhere. While you’re doing that, you’re also training your “eye” and your photo framing will get better and you’ll find interesting perspectives. Don’t worry about any of that now, just remember: STOP. PULL OVER. PAY ATTENTION.
The past few days, I’ve been doing just that with my Lumia 1020. Let’s see what I found! 🙂
Finding Creativity/Beauty/Opportunity EVERYWHERE
Since I started my phone-tography blog… What? You don’t know about that? OK, stop what you’re doing and bookmark http://phonetographs.wordpress.com.
As I was saying, when I started my phone-tography blog, I knew that I was going to need to keep the content fresh. That means that I would need to find things to shoot wherever I find myself. This scene here seems pretty uneventful and not a likely subject of a photoshoot, right? Well, check after the break for what I was able to find in this spot.
