I spend a lot of time outdoors photographing. Sometimes driving for over an hour, then hiking deep into the forest to find that special image that every art director will want to buy (or at least that is my hope!). Lately, though, time and weather have not been cooperating with me. Because of this, I have found that I have been overlooking a treasure in my own backyard.
Siting on my deck one evening I noticed all the activity on and around my deck. I grabbed my camera and started shooting. Birds, animals, flowers and plants were everywhere and I had been overlooking them. I learned that I needed to be more aware of my surroundings. I've learned to be more observant, more patient and even a little more creative with my subjects, not to mention more selective.
I too, find my 'backyard' full of amazing potential photographs of nature at its best. Catching an image of a hummingbird in flight, water droplets on my flowers, bees & butterflies collecting nectar, tiny toadstools, colorful native bird life...nothing better or more satisfying!
