EMERGING PHOTOGRAPHERS

No Pressure

You know how you think you see lots of great "photos" when you don't have a camera with you? Well, I think its a legitimate hypothesis. Here's why ... It’s like hitting golf balls at a driving range, as opposed to during a round of golf. There is no pressure to perform and no consequences for failure.

When you're wandering around with no camera and have no "intention", you're in a more relaxed and open state of awareness and therefore are more likely to "notice" what might make a photograph. This is why I believe that I do my best photos when I'm not "trying" to take pictures. Instead, I literally put myself in places where I'm most likely, if I am open and available, to see things I want to photograph.

Be open and available to see something and I bet you will be more productive.
