Living life behind the lens you develop a new view on the world, but something grows, the need for more out of the images you’re making, some might say it becomes an obsession.
But for me its Passion putting a little bit of yourself in every image, and trying to be different, one hopes the style you develop is like a signature and people recognise the photographer from just looking at the image.
What’s needed to get this point, well its practice, practice and some more practice, followed by a lot more practice, to get better as a photographer it’s a case of keeping your finger on the button.
To be a good photographer you need to commit to the art, with it never too far from your thoughts, mentally taking photos in your head of the things around you, don’t under estimate the value of your camera phone, use when you see interesting shapes patterns or light, its great learning tool.
Behind the lens be yourself, break the rules of photography, be bold and experiment, push out side of your comfort zone, not too many people have achieved greatest by staying in their own backyard.
Mix with people who have similar passion for photography, a lot of people around you will not get you and your feeling’s and passion, but that ok.
Photography is one of those pursuits where you can live in the moment a couple of quotes from Buddha
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.
The mind is everything. What you think you become.
A jug fills drop by drop.
