What's good about photography is that it keeps you constantly searching for beauty ---- a scene, a person, a thing ---- and that is good for your mind, body, and spirit. It keeps you positive. And you don't have to go far to find beauty. It's all around you. It's beneath you, it's above you, it's beside you, it's behind you. And it's right in front of you. You just need to open the eyes of your mind and feel with your heart.
So go get a camera and shoot the world. You don't need to spend a fortune on a DSLR. Grab what you can afford and grow from there. Near or far, I'm sure there's something out there that will capture your attention. Learn to look at the world from different perspectives. You'll be surprised at what you'll find. And, don't forget to share your photos.
Very well said. I read that the human mind sees 15000 images a day, that being said, to capture just one of those images on a photograph and to study its simplicity and beautiful significance .... is life.
I see it the same way as you, I shoot mainly wildlife and I have learned that you get a lot of knowledge about animal behavior because you are actually always observing them, ready to know if they are going to "do something interesting" like flying away, quarrel, fight, mate etc which is what you are actually waiting for, you learn about their behavior because you need to anticipate to it. O f course as you say all that is a lot of fun, the boring part comes as always when you sit in front of your computer!
I agree 100% with what you've said. Sometimes you can't take the picture you want because of the persons you are with and they don't understand that it may take a moment longer to capture a good scene. It's frustrating, but it's worth it
Hahaha, I know what you mean David. I often miss the scenery because I have to drive, and to think my wife and kids are either sleeping or tinkering with their cellphones :) Drive carefully :) Thanks, David.
