“Shoot what you love!” Click, click, click.
“Photograph what you hate.” Click.
“Shoot everywhere and everything.” Click, click, click. click, click, click.
Taking pictures is easy. Making a photograph requires more skill and effort. Embarking on a new project can be downright challenging.
The challenge isn’t what to photograph but rather what to say within the context of 15 – 20 related images.
The difficulty lies in deciding on a theme that speaks to your heart and the viewing public at the same time. Choosing a project that has the depth to express exactly what you want to say can be a major investment of your time and effort. That is why you want to get it right!
This search leaves in it’s wake a collection of lists, library books, false starts, lucid dreams and candid conversations.
Walking and shooting. Learning, watching, waiting. Frustration and elation. Repeat.
And then it suddenly appears out of the clear blue sky – unannounced and without warning.
Ground zero for your next project.
Coming on so quick and with such clarity that you can’t help but ask…
“Where have you been?”
